Tendayi Viki opened the August event of Agile100 with his lecture on the topic: “The Authentic Intrapreneur”. The Associate Partner of Strategyzer fired, like Alexander Osterwalder at the May Event with his lecture on “Invincible Companies“, a real firework of business innovations.
The author of “The Corporate Startup” and “The Lean Product Lifecycle” showed that he lives intrapreneurship and innovation-driven companies. His lecture brought many examples from his latest book “Pirates in the Navy” and showed why innovations always come from within a company and should not be initiated by external forces.
He presented the “security against dismissal” of intrapreneurs as an example of an innovative company. Innovations require time and security, which is why time and trust must be given to the drivers so that a company can actually be innovative. Similar to Markus Andrezak in “Living Strategy“, Tendayi also said that strategic decisions determine success and failure, but also the power of innovation. More on this topic will be presented by Tendayi himself in his lecture on “authentic intrapreneurs” and the following question and answer session with our moderator Sohrab Salimi.
