Intrapreneurship, Competition and Company Efficiency
AbstractThis paper investigates intrapreneurship, competition and company efficiency in large Slovenian companies in order to provide firm-level evidence and management implications on the extent to which companies exploit available internal business potentials. The survey data for the sample of large Slovenian companies and statistical methodology are used to analyse the association between intrapreneurship, competition and company efficiency. The empirical results confirmed the significant impact of the internal business potentials on the operating results of the analysed companies. The utilization rate of internal business potentials was only partially or ill-used, reflecting the internal potential source of unused business opportunities as one of possible ways to improve competitive advantage and company efficiency. The empirical results imply the importance of long-term managerial strategy towards innovation and encouraging creativity as the basis for successful internal corporate business strategy to improve competitive advantage and company efficiency.
