Programme Curriculum

Innovating in large organisations can get you a lot of exposure from within your workplace. In this chapter, you will learn about the effect an innovative project can have on your career, even if the project is not successful. You will understand how an obvious display of initiative can impress particularly senior stakeholders. We will also be investigating the range of hard and soft skills an entreprise innovator can gain over the journey.
In this chapter, we will look into the compensation practices of an innovative project within larges organisations. You will obtain a clearer understanding of the differences between an entrepreneur and an entreprise innovator’s compensation as well as the differences between internally and externally recruited innovators. Finally, you’ll have a look at how you as an innovator can attain equity from your venture.
In this final chapter, we will look into the number of ways in which an entreprise innovator can exit their venture. We’ll compare the exit strategies that are adopted by the intrapreneur themselves, and the strategies adopted by the corporate host. We will investigate how the exit outcomes differ depending on the projects success and explore different outcome scenarios based on this.
