Unleash entrepreneurial energy in a concentrated mixture of talent, ideas and resources

  • Key Levers
    • Internal markets for new ideas
    • Venture capital model of internal entrepreneurs seeking funding from both internal and approved external sources
    • Use of peers, rather than bosses, to screen and evaluate opportunities
    • Loose structure and frequent organizational changes
  • Example: Enron
    • “You cannot control the atoms within a nuclear fusion reaction. We allow people to go in which ever direction that they want to go. And they’re incented to do all the steps of innovation themselves. And around that, we put broad risk-reward controls.” – Ken Rice, Enron Capital & Trade Resources
