Are you a changemaker who wants to achieve, grow, and build more within your organization?


If you’re like many people, when you think of innovation, you think of entrepreneurs.

And gifted entrepreneurs have written countless books for go-getters starting their own businesses. But what if you’re a visionary who wants to innovate effectively within the framework of your larger organization? Far too often, you’ve been left to reinvent the wheel, over and over again.

     Until now. In this inspiring, yet practical primer, award-winning intrapreneur and author Louis K. Gump shines a light on the efforts that occur behind the walls of almost every organization—from global business titans to local market leaders; from charitable nonprofits to government entities; from educational institutions to informal community groups and beyond; these are the places of the in-house innovators, the explorers, the intrapreneurs. And what is an intrapreneur?

     An intrapreneur is someone who

• leads change within a larger organization,

• creates value through innovation and growth, and

• develops new products, services, and businesses that shape industries.

     The Inside Innovator is the playbook Gump wishes he’d had years ago while he and his teammates experimented, problem-solved, and ultimately learned how to be successful intrapreneurs. Full of insights from interviews with industry leaders and essential tools that Gump has learned through decades of experience—this primer will help you achieve more, build stronger relationships, and increase personal fulfillment through intrapreneurship.
