"How (and WHY) to Hire Intrapreneurs"

Did you know that Gmail and Google Maps, which are some of Google’s most successful products, were results of Google’s 20% time program—which allowed Googlers to devote one-fifth of their work week to pursue independent projects?

While the need to innovate has gotten through to the business world, there is still major uncertainty about how to do this. Because saying you think innovation is important is one thing; releasing money and resources for innovation goes a lot further. The real art is to actually develop new products and services that success in the market and secure the future of the company.” – Alexandre Janssen | Head of Innovation EMEA | Deloitte

Fostering innovation and new ideas can not only result in financial gain for an organization, it is a critical for the organization to survive.

Outcomes from this session:

  • Define “intrapreneur” and learn why you need them on your team to help achieve the organization’s strategic plan
  •  Develop a business plan to influence key management
  •  Conduct job analysis and create job descriptions for this new type of employee
  •  Create a recruitment plan to attract and retain
