What Is Intrapreneurship?
Enabling change, innovation and solutions.
Intrapreneurship is revolutionising the way many organisations do business and is already a feature of leading companies as Gore, Google and 3M.
Indeed, it is something we want to bring to mission-driven organisations. The status quo for many organisations is not sustainable, with many challenges ahead, including prolonged pressure on income levels. The Lens believes that developing the skills, mind-set and culture that promotes innovation and engages the workforce in service design will be a feature of those who flourish in the future and that is what we want to encourage in your organisation.
The Lens founder and CEO, Steve McCreadie, delivered a highly anticipated talk at TEDxGlasgow 2016 which describes what intrapreneurship is and why we need it.
In·tra·pre·neur·ship (n) 1) Successful adaptation of entrepreneurial attitudes and strategies inside of a bureaucratic organisation. 2) Implementation of start-up practices within a large organisation, producing valued innovation.
“Intrapreneurs can transform an organization more quickly and effectively than others because they are self motivated freethinkers, masters at navigating around bureaucratic and political inertia.”
