Individual Report on Corporate Entrepreneurship (30%)
Each individual will select an organization, any organization (should be one with which you are familiar or at least can get good access to information). Envision and design an intrapreneurial venture appropriate for that organization. Your paper must present a compelling argument for the project you propose, as well as articulate what resources you will require (financial, human, technological, etc.), where within the firm you believe the venture should be housed, reporting arrangements, etc.
The paper must deal with the inward-looking aspects of the corporate entrepreneurship process (organizational design, incentives, resource allocation, values, etc.). It should also address outward-looking elements (such as marketing, customer adoption, value proposition, etc.) and how this opportunity fits within the boundaries of organization. You should analyze a particular problem or set of problems and provide recommendations about what the company should do. While developing a history or fact base is an important part of this assignment, the paper should primarily deal with analysis and recommendations. A variety of sources should be utilized and appropriate citations and bibliography should be included.
The final deliverable will be an 8 to 10 page final paper (A4, Times and New Roman 12, Double Spaced, 1-inch Margin). You may also include an appendix that goes into further detail with figures, charts, graphs, tables, references, etc. The appendix is not included in the 8 to 10 page report.
