Intrapreneurship: A systematic approach for innovating

How do you drive change and innovation from within an organisation? In this podcast episode, Janett Egbar, Co-founder of the Centre for Intrapreneurship, takes you through a practical approach to innovating from within. She covers how innovation is really about identifying problems that need to be solved, covers the skills intrapreneurs need to start making a difference right away and how rather than being ‘blockers’, finance professionals should be brought into the conversation early to help innovation succeed. Janett is joined by Gavan Ord, Manager – Business and Investment Policy from CPA Australia.
