Have you spotted an opportunity to make positive change from inside your company? Are you trying to get decision makers to invest in your great idea? Frustrated that people don't seem to 'get it'?
Making the business case is a key first step in the life of a social intrapreneur. But, this is about more than just running the data. It's also about creating a compelling emotional case that will rally support from your decision makers.
Given the importance of 'the pitch' for social innovation, The League of Intrapreneurs has developed an entire toolkit dedicated to showcasing the tips and tricks used by successful social intrapreneurs in making the business case.
We hope this kit will inspire others to share their ideas for what works and doesn't when trying to drive change from within.
In particular, we're keen to hear your thoughts on questions like:
1. How can social intrapreneurs connect long-term visions with short-term business priorities?
2. What are effective methods for creating space for experimentation and learning?
3. How can social intrapreneurs avoid being pigeonholed as 'CSR' - i.e. philanthropy or tangential to the business?
This Intrapreneurship Clinic is the first in a 5-part series with the League of Intrapreneurs. Twice a month, members of Business Fights Poverty will have the opportunity to engage with Maggie De Pree, a lead author a the new Cubicle Warriors Toolkit, and other invited panelists. Each time, we will focus on a different element of the Tooklit.
