Facilitating Intrapreneurship- Can Ceos Facilitate Intrapreneurship?
Chief Executive Officers (CEOs) have pivotal roles in guiding the organization forward with their vision and strategies but with the current economic situations, organizations are struggling with innovation management. The economic environment of the 21st century is getting progressively more competitive, demanding and challenging for most organizations. In order to survive and be successful, organizations constantly need to work on their products, services and business models to maintain a competitive advantage. This paper proposes intrapreneurship as an effective solution for managing innovation progression in different organizations. Organizational complexities can be effectively managed if CEOs facilitate an intrapreneurial climate where the skills of intrapreneurs can be nurtured and developed. This paper demonstrates that by establishing an intrapreneurial climate, CEOs can provide development opportunities for prospective intrapreneurs to grow and flourish in any organization. This research uses an audio recorded structured interview methodology with data analysis using NVivo software. Key words: CEO characteristics, Intrapreneurship, Qualitative research, Innovation, Organization management
