Innovation coming from ANYONE, ANYWHERE, ALWAYS – that’s the promise of intrapreneurship, and the main theme for the upcoming Intrapreneurship Conference Silicon Valley.
Sounds good, but… how do we get to deliver upon that promise?
As innovators, we fight many battles internally. We’re creating the new, whilst being part of the old.
We’re trying to innovate how we innovate, whilst some colleagues still question why innovation is a top priority at all. More than any other function, we’re expected to deliver immediate returns on the investments made and resources allocated- whether or not that is feasible given outdated governance and organizational structures.
Looking outwards, we are increasingly aware that our company is just one of several players in several ecosystems delivering value to your consumers. The days of the almighty enterprises are gone- if we don’t collaborate with all players in these ecosystems (from startups to venture funds to suppliers and competitors) we won’t survive.
So again, how do we get our innovation programs to deliver upon their promise?
Intrapreneurship Conference Silicon Valley is the perfect space for having in-depth discussions with peers, getting answers to burning questions and coming up with practical ideas for setting and achieving your goals for 2017.
After the plenary talks by experts and intrapreneurship case studies on day 1, and the field trips in the morning on day 2 (more on these next week), it’s time for panels and roundtable discussions in the afternoon of day 2.
You’ll be joining two rounds of open and candid conversations on key themes as outlined above, with peers from other companies and industries, all chasing similar objectives and facing similar challenges.

INTRAPRENEURSHIP: THE SEARCH FOR SCALE
Justin Lokitz, Joanna Dillon, Megan Moyer, Meg Cain
Steve Blank once defined a startup as “a temporary organization used to search for a repeatable and scalable business model.” As founders and leaders of corporate startups, we’re doing exactly that, yet in a context different from startups – for better or for worse.
In this panel, we’ll host a group conversations around the most important questions you have and crucial challenges you face. What does a culture of innovation look like? What tools, processes, and/or methodologies do you use within your organization to manage and measure innovation initiatives?
GOLDEN HANDCUFFS OR GOLDEN PARACHUTES?
INCENTIVE STRUCTURES FOR INTRAPRENEURS
Eileen Tanghal, Kirsty Gil, David Finke
In this panel we will discuss the best incentive structures to put in place, so that intrapreneurship programs can attract the right talent at the right time to ensure success.
Panelists will discuss individual employee expectations around compensation as well as how one works within a corporate to set up the right incentive plans.
ENABLING AN AMBIDEXTROUS CORPORATION:
THE BALANCE BETWEEN AGILITY AND EXECUTION
Jean-Claude Junqua, Dean Sivara
Organizational ambidexterity is an organization’s ability to be efficient in its management of today’s business and also adaptable for coping with tomorrow’s changing demand. This mental balancing act between exploration and execution can be one of the toughest of all managerial challenges and it’s no surprise that few companies do it well.
In this panel we will take a close look at how contemporary businesses fare when they attempt to pursue innovations that lie beyond their current products or markets. Do they succeed in achieving breakthroughs? Do their existing businesses suffer? What are the most common challenges? What organizational and managerial structures do they use? What are the tradeoffs between agility and execution? What works, and what doesn’t?

LEVERAGING THE START-UP AND VENTURE COMMUNITY
TO ACCELERATE INNOVATION
Scott Goering, Ansgar Chorhummel, Ryan Teksten, Brent Segal
The Silicon Valley ecosystem is known for an incredible pace of innovation and the ability to quickly bring products to market. Many large organizations have found that partnering with start-ups and the venture capital firms that back them can be beneficial for bridging a talent gap, increasing velocity of innovation, and creating product differentiation.
During the course of this panel, practitioners at Fortune 1000 organizations will share best practices for partnering with start-ups and the venture community, including approaches to collaborating with external partners, and pitfalls to avoid when trying to drive innovative products. The speakers represent companies from a cross-section of industries, each with unique views on partnership models and the merits of different approaches.
