The launch of the Intrapreneurship Compass 2017
On November 14th 2017, the first report about the Intrapreneurship Compass was launched. This 4-year research project is carried out by Uppsala University under the leadership of Professor Ivo Zander, Dr. Katarina Blomkvist and Dr. Philip Kappen. The research aims to increase knowledge about intrapreneurship in order to strengthen renewal at companies in Sweden. Among other things, the team encourages a higher degree of risk-taking, a greater openness to new ideas, as well as a need for more female intrapreneurs. The Intrapreneurship Compass gives organizations a tool to measure and develop their intrapreneurial climate.
