Overview

A pioneering contribution to the literature of intrapreneurship, this volume offers a unique new perspective on the subject by focusing on intrapreneurship in academe. The authors assert that the corporate lessons of survival, competition, and getting the job done--all widely documented in studies of intrapreneurship--are equally relevant, indeed vital, to institutions of higher education. They show how a university's productive capacity can be dramatically improved by incorporating the principles of intrapreneurship into an academic setting. They also offer practical strategies for intrapreneurial change drawn from their own experiences.
