I explore Intrapreneurship, the highest form of employee engagement
In a recent article, Beyond Employee Engagement, I made the case that one intrapreneur can create more value than many engaged employees. Here is one example that proves the point.
Adam Justice was an IT consultant at Accenture when, in 2009, he decided to take a job at a small family-owned company called Grid Connect. Between 2009 and 2012 Adam was a fairly engaged and profitable employee, but thirteen months ago he came up with an idea for a new product; a product that officially launches next week. Thirteen months ago Adam started his journey from engaged employee to intrapreneur. How could you get your people to replicate Adams contribution?
His new product is so useful and disruptive that the innovative people at salesforce.com instantly recognized its value and invited him to be a speaker at their dreamforce conference next week. He will be telling his intrapreneurial story and officially launching this new product, called ConnectSense, in front of a dream audience. Not bad for someone who, just thirteen months ago, was like any other employee in any other organization. Intrapreneurship has its privileges.
