Gifford Pinchot introduced one of the most liberating concepts ever to emerge in business: Intrapreneuring, or how an employee within a large corporation, using courage, foresight and tools for managing the corporate immune system, can succeed in taking direct, entrepreneur-like responsibility for turning an idea into a profitable product or service.
In this timely re-release of his classic work, Pinchot shows how large corporations can innovate at Internet speed. The only way is to make good use of their people's intrapreneurial energy. He provides a blueprint for how an individual can become an intrapreneur and how companies can develop and support entrepreneurial talents-a necessity if they are to remain innovative in the 21st century.
