Many progressive corporations are now asking their employees to be intrapreneurs and are even including it in their vision statements. For example:
- “We ask our employees to behave in an INTRAPRENEURIAL, non-bureaucratic and productive manner.” IBM.
- “We think, decide and behave in an INTRAPRENEURIAL way.” Union Bank of Switzerland.
- We ask our employees to be “ENTREPRENEURS”. Siemens.
Research has shown that upgrading even one person from engaged to intrapreneur can create more value than migrating a larger number of disengaged people to the engaged group. So, it makes sense for organisations and individuals to invest in the development of this new all-important skillset and to create a critical mass of intrapreneurs at all levels within the organisation. But encouraging people inside established enterprises to think like entrepreneurs is a relatively recent concept. Consequentially in most organisations, there is now a skills gap when it comes to developing the kind of intrapreneurial thinking that is needed to help organisations and businesses to transform quickly and to be future ready.
