Intrapreneurs play a critical role in organizations in conceiving and championing significant new avenues for the corporation to continuously revitalize itself, be they major new product initiatives (e.g., Apple’s iPod), new technologies, new markets, new operational processes, new IS/IT technologies, new HRM initiatives, and/or new partnerships. In this course, we will examine the theoretical foundations and field-tested best practices for formulating Intrapreneurship ideas, developing the business case, gaining senior management and resource commitment, minimizing resistance, and ensuring successful execution. Readings, and case studies will be drawn from diverse fields such as Corporate Intrapreneurship, Innovation Management, Change Management, and/or Technology Management.  Students will be expected to share personal experiences during the seminars.
