4 steps to launch an intrapreneur strategy
Intrapreneurship is coming into force in the innovation models of large groups inspired by the famous 20% of Google. The principle is to give employees time to devote themselves to the development of new projects for the company (at Google, Chromecast or Gmail were developed as part of their intrapreneurship
Intrapreneur Definition : What does it mean ?
Intrapreneurship: what is it?
The model is theoretically very virtuous, it consists in relying on the know-how of employees and giving them the framework and freedom to develop their projects. In addition to this, we must add specific support for intrapreneurs so that they acquire the right working methods (ability to observe and understand the user, frugal development methods, ability to iterate or even rotate…). This approach thus enables the development of new skills among employees while building up a portfolio of innovations for large groups.
At the Schoolab, we have accompanied more than 100 intrapreneurs in nearly 10 different companies from the idea to the scale-up of the product on the market, which has enabled us to identify major trends and cut out the intrapreneurship approach in order to derive the greatest possible benefits.
Intrapreneurship, in order to address both “people” and “business” issues, must be structured and organized around the level of progress of each project. This structuring allows several things:
-> Functioning by promotion
-> Projection of intrapreneurs in a clear path
-> Gradual selection of projects with the most potential
-> Gradual investment on projects
