NOVANCIA – PARIS, 13 DECEMBER 2012 – INTRAPRENEURSHIP CONFERENCE
Intrapreneurship is a rising management concept innovative organizations are adopting in order to foster innovation, employee engagement and creativity. Intrapreneurship creates a framework where employees are granted autonomy and freedom to drive projects of their own in an entrepreneurial way. Through intrapreneurship, corporations become more innovative and more agile allowing dormant ideas that employees have to take shape. They also keep their talented employees accomplished and happy within the company.
“Intrapreneurship is the act of behaving like an entrepreneur within a larger organization.”
During the conference, a group of international top speakers, experienced intrapreneurs and innovation specialists will cover the topics of intrapreneurship, corporate entrepreneurship, open innovation, and social intrapreneurship. Representatives from innovative companies running successful intrapreunarial programs will share their experience and their view on why intrapreneurship is positively impacting their organization and how they implement it.
The conference is designed for human resources managers, Innovation managers, chief strategy and chief operating officers, as well as everyone who is interested in the new ways of management and innovation.
As an intrapreneur, you are tirelessly trying to build momentum for your projects. Because you are asking people to invest time and energy in a project outside of their day job, it is vital that you find ways to emotionally connect them to what you are trying to build.
