Example text

These corporate executives challenge the thinking of the DGM rather than telling him what to do. Because the division is viewed as the corporation’s primary center for entrepreneurship, these corporate executives are betting on the DGM’s business convictions and judgments, rather than on their own judgments and convictions. Although it is difficult to pursue the bigger-is-better and the small-isbeautiful corporate philosophies simultaneously, it can be done. Corporate executives need to be the corporate entrepreneurs for the bigger opportunities while allowing the DGMs to do the same for smaller opportunities, by not squeezing them dry of the autonomy and resources needed for entrepreneurship.

Accordingly, they believe in investing the time and effort necessary to carefully review all programs before deciding where to cut and delay. And they communicate the rationale for their actions to everyone involved. The management cultures in these companies view failure in new business creation as normal, and focus on learning from failure rather than on finding fault or apportioning blame. This helps to generate new knowledge as well as second-generation initiatives. Part III: The corporate executives Corporate executives influence new business creation by their corporate philosophy – either “bigger-is-better,” focused on a few big opportunities, or “small-is-beautiful,” focused on many smaller opportunities.

New business creation is hindered if sufficient resources are not available for it, or if several new initiatives have been introduced to the market recently – because then the focus shifts to improving their performance to ensure their success. Both product innovation and process innovation spur new business creation. Part II: The management culture Management culture is defined as the beliefs that the corporate executives and the division managers share in common. Contrary to popular opinion, financial incentives are not needed to promote corporate entrepreneurship if the right management culture prevails.
