German researchers Philipp Gellert and Martin Müller of the Business Innovation and Change Management Dept. of the University of Applied Science in Munich, Germany (Hochschule München) published their international business consulting study “Konzept für Führungskräfte zur Implementierung einer Innovationsstrategie” (in German language only) in summer 2014.
The otherwise mostly self-explanatory graphics (see below) shows how different approaches increase employee innovation mindset (vertical axis) with long-term impact (“Langfristig”) in the upper right. The study implicitly confirms the power of intrapreneurial and disruptive approaches. Note that it explicitly mentions several intrapreneurial approaches I developed and also covered in my www.OrgChanger.com blog in more detail:
- School for Intrapreneurs: Lessons from a FORTUNE Global 500 company
- Angel Investing within the Company – Insights from an Internal Corporate Venture Capitalist
- Innovation Lab (“Innovationslabor”) – not yet covered on www.OrgChanger.com
