Corporate innovation-Where did all the good ideas go?
Sound like a discussion item on your department agenda? If so, join some of the nation's top brand-names who have already partnered with the Venture Center to integrate the passion, risk-taking and creative thinking characteristic of entrepreneurs into their companies. We call it "intrapreneurship," but you might call it your strategic success.
Breaking these barriers of group-think and learning how to think with courage and imagination (just like an entrepreneur) could be the difference between launching a new "intraprise" or a job search.
Customized Intrapreneurial Training
The training includes 8 days of interactive, team-based, experiential learning. Sessions include classroom instruction as well as out-of class responsibilities and interaction with entrepreneurs to challenge the boundaries of traditional thinking and processes.
Who should attend? All levels of management can benefit from this training to jump start work teams and innovate corporations.
What will you learn? Participants begin as a group of individuals and by the end of training they become an effective working team sharing a common vision.
- Participants learn self-confidence in their ability to think creatively
- Participants complete a concrete and well-researched idea that becomes the basis for the new "intraprise"
- Participants develop an intraprise business plan which cover these components:
- Executive Summary
- The Product, Service, or Process Improvement
- Corporate Fit
- The Marketing and Sales Plan
- Operations Plan
- Summary of Risks
- Financial Statements
- Managerial Issues
Intrapreneurship: a global model with practical application
The Venture Center's intrapreneurship training program is based on information of work done by Gifford Pinchot, author of the international bestseller INTRAPRENEURING, and the handbook he created with Ron Pellman, "Intrapreneuring in Action." We augment these works with real-life experience from current entrepreneurs, provide the insight of entrepreneurial ventures nationwide and link to national speakers and experts in creative visioning.
