In the fifth episode of The Learning Company Podcast, Roderick van der Meulen discusses intrapreneurship. We are all familiar with entrepreneurship: setting up a business. However, Roderick stresses the importance of intrapreneurs. These are the changemakers within organizations, people who challenge the status quo of the companies they work for.
Through these mavericks, in the most positive sense, organizations thrive. Because change brings opportunities and possibilities. However, in order for intrapeneurs to blossom, organizations need to reinforce an open and safe learning culture. Intrapeneurship seems like a great collaboration between organizations and their employees.
