Call for papers : Corporate Entrepreneurship

Challenges and new perspectives.

International Journal of Entrepreneurship and Innovation

Corporate entrepreneurship or Intrapreneurship lies at the core of large organizations facing drastic environment change at the political, economic, demographic or social levels.  The never-ending quest for excellence, or at least for survival, prompt the management of companies to question their own best practices and reinvent themselves.  Pressures for continuous change are everywhere, be they the fierce new competition emerging from Asia with giant companies (such as PetroChina, China Mobile, Lenovo, Tata Consultancy Services, Infosys Technologies…), or the ongoing deregulation at work in the EEC.

At the same time, the boundaries and structure of organizations seem to evolve in a relentless way: reorganization, projects, networks.are the many forms that companies adopt along the continuous attempt at maintaining or gaining a competitive advantage. As a consequence many companies are at odds to exploit true capabilities to innovate, to adopt more proactive ways of doing business and develop entrepreneurial orientation.
