Intra-/Entrepreneurship Workshop

The development of new products and services is fundamental to sustain long-term competitive advantages. The efforts of the individual intrapreneur or a team of intrapreneurs who are responsible for this assignment become even more complex when the assignment must be carried out inside an existing on-going business.
