If only Borders or Barnes & Noble had the right intrapreneur in their organization, maybe Amazon’s rise wouldn’t have been so impactful to them. If only Yahoo incorporated the position of Intrapreneur into its culture maybe they would be neck and neck with Google instead of on the outside looking in.
An intrapreneur is someone who has an entrepreneurial streak in his or her DNA but choose to align his or her talents with an organization in place of creating his or her own. These professional are critical to the success of organizations as corporations have to continuously deal with the speed of disruption and disruptive technologies.
