We will show you how you can successfully apply a true/genuine entrepreneurial mindset, even if your constraints and environment are not those of an independent entrepreneur.
Unlike an entrepreneur, you :
usually consider only a part of the company to solve a specific problem
have to consider corporate constraints: this requires a specific kind of creativity
have to find resources and assistance for the project within your company and have to negotiate to have access to them
will be paid by your company: this will influence the way you measure risk
have to work in an established company culture: this means that you will measure your achievements in relation to established values
However, like an entrepreneur, you will have to excel at managing key elements of the entrepreneurial spirit: such as being creative, setting priorities, assessing risks.
