Are You a Corporate Entrepreneur?

Posted on December 2, 2014. Filed under: Uncategorized |

In preparing my content for my upcoming book with Brian Tracy called Uncommon, I’ve been thinking a lot about “corporate entrepreneurship” in today’s world of work. For several years now, I’ve been incorporating elements of this concept into our solutions at ITtechExec and NoddlePlace with the intent of moving away from the short-term job-hop to job-hop mentality that life has a tendency to suck us into toward the much more effective strategy of long-term career advancement and protection.

With an external job move happening every 3 to 4 years for most technical professionals these days, it’s time to think beyond just getting out of your current situation into another one. It’s time to think about how to prepare for a career filled with potential moves.

So how do you do that? That’s what my contribution to Uncommon will focus on.

Today, I’d like to hear what your thoughts are on “corporate entrepreneurship.” What does it mean to you?

I’ve put together the following short poll as a way of gathering some data we can use in the book. Check all the answers that you think apply:

The word corporate is also limiting. I am a governmental employee and implement many entrepreneurial attributes to my employment in building new programs to meet legal or regulatory compliance, drive costs down for the Taxpayer, or redefining ROI when money is not the only driver.
