DRIVING INNOVATION FROM WITHIN: A GUIDE FOR INTERNAL ENTREPRENEURS
Driving innovation from inside of an organization has become the central determinant of organizational success today. Employees are the number one source of innovative growth options and the only remaining source of sustainable competitive advantage. Arming them with the skills and tools necessary to innovate on a continual basis is of paramount importance to any organization with aspirations to remain relevant in the future.
Kaihan dispels the myth of the visionary startup company that disrupts the world as being the primary source of innovation. Kaihan shows how large, established organizations are the true innovators and how they can be a place where both incremental and revolutionary ideas and innovations come to life.
Creating the culture, structure, and organizational environment needed to enable continual employee-driven innovation is no easy task. Driving Innovation From Within assembles insights from over 150 interviews with internal entrepreneurs and experts into a practical guide for leaders and employees alike – proving the toolkit, frameworks, and know how they need to transform their organizations and drive growth by activating employee-driven innovation and entrepreneurship.
Kaihan Krippendorff's latest work, Driving Innovation from Within, is based on three years of intensive research, built on the latest thinking and experiences of experts, employee innovators, insights from top strategists from the Outthinker Strategy Network, leading companies who have cracked the code of organic innovation, and Kaihan’s practical consulting experience, which has generated $2.5B in new revenue for his clients. Let Kaihan arm you and your employees with the right strategies, tools, and know-how to spark entrepreneurial behavior, drive a culture of innovation, and make your company move faster than ever before while using fewer resources.
