Instruction

Prior to beginning work on this discussion forum, read Part 1: Changing the Status Quo from the course textbook The Greenhouse Approach: Cultivating Intrapreneurship in Companies and Organizations. Additionally, read the following articles  The Irrational Side of Change Management (Links to an external site.) and  1 Reason Why Most Change Management Efforts Fail (Links to an external site.). Note the reference to the estimated 70% failure rate for change.

Next, reflect on the following observation by Niccolo Machiavelli:

It must be remembered that there is nothing more difficult to plan, more doubtful of success, nor more dangerous to manage than a new system. For the initiator has the enmity of all who would profit by the preservation of the old institution and merely lukewarm defenders in those who gain by the new ones. – The Prince

Intrapreneurs are change agents and initiate outward change (products and services) and inward change (policies, procedures, technology). Assess the information in the above articles and Part 1 of the course textbook and then do the following:

· Determine the environment needed for beneficial intrapreneurial activities. Do this by devising a minimum of three principles you feel are the foundation for a beneficial intrapreneurial environment.

· The two articles offered above suggest there is an estimated 70% failure rate for organization change implementation efforts. Based on what you know about intrapreneurial activities, defend the use of nimble change management techniques to reduce the estimated 70% failure rate previously mentioned.

Offer a link to a video or an article that provides additional information about intrapreneurs as change agents, as well as effective change management procedures.
