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

  • Intrapreneur ideation: Bringing out the ideas of employees

    Ideation: Bringing out the ideas of employees
    Key success factors: communicating internally about this intrapreneurship initiative, generating employee interest in participating, defining selection criteria for ideas that will move into the next phase.

    Example example: L’Oréal Operations (with the MYT platform)

  • Startup Incubation: Bringing selected intrapreneurs up to skills level

    Incubation: Bringing selected intrapreneurs up to skills level
    The objective of the intrapreneur: to have projects that have been prototyped with an initial market test, to have skills in the development of innovative projects.

    Key success factors: having motivated intrapreneurs who put themselves in a learning position, putting intrapreneurs in an active position to make concrete progress on their projects, allowing projects to go quickly to market to test their first hypotheses, defining selection criteria for projects that will move on to the next phase.
    Example: TF1 with Coraline (Pics Your Life project)

  • Acceleration: Developing an initial proof of concept (POC)

    Acceleration: Developing an initial proof of concept (POC)
    The objective: Acceleration: To develop a first proof of concept (POC) tested and validated by the market with a clear and validated business model. Put intrapreneurs in a leadership position on their projects and give them the keys to widely embark internal stakeholders.

    Key success factors Intrapreneurship: create a free space around the POC to accelerate its market launch and the ability to quickly test ideas, coach intrapreneurs on project management and their stance, determine the project’s landing options (internally: reintegration into a Business Unit, creation of a new Business Unit or externally with a spin-off).
    example: AWKN

  • Intrapreneur Innovative product launch : beta version

    Launch : Launch Beta
    Objective: Launch a Beta on a wider field and capture new market shares.

    Key factors of success: to rely on expert resources (Growth Hacking, Tech, Commercial, Design, Branding…) and to articulate them well, to accompany the intrapreneurs to structure their team and to gain autonomy both on the operation of the service but also on the management of the project.

    Example: Vinci (with link to article in Les Echos)
