The Intrapreneurship Lab is designed for students who want to have impact and lead change in an organisation, through developing the skills and knowledge to understand how to innovate within complex structures. The entrepreneurial mindset is essential, not only for those starting their own businesses, but also for understanding how to implement innovative solutions within large structures, such as governments, healthcare systems, financial institutions or consultancy firms.
This programme is ideal if you are intending to join a complex organisation post-study, or alternatively if you have experience of working in a large organisation and found it challenging to implement innovative solutions. It is an an excellent opportunity to gain insight into the challenges that being an intrapreneur presents, how to implement new ideas, work with multiple organisational levels and how to make innovation sustainable. Participants will be able to share their own professional experience as well as learn from others.
During this session, participants will work on the case study of Accenture Development Partnerships, a corporate social enterprise set up by Gib Bulloch who was a consultant with Accenture at the time. The case demonstrates the challenges faced when trying to implement innovation in an existing organisation. Students will be able to demonstrate the knowledge they have gained throughout the programme and present to their peers.
