Intrapreneurship: Corporate Innovation

This session will address how the “human capital” within your organization can be activated to identify and develop your future products. There is much more ‘sleeping talent’ to be found is large companies than you might think. By reactivating that talent, tapping into their entrepreneurial spirit by applying some processes from the ‘lean culture’ and the startup environment, for example through “Innovation hackathons”, you can boost corporate innovation and motivate your most talented employees to engage long-term with the company and develop those new product lines and business unites that will secure the future of the company.
