Center for Organizational Innovation and Entrepreneurship

Cooperative strategies for sustained competitive advantage and business model innovation.

Organizational Entrepreneurship

Popular business history is littered with the bones of companies that became extinct for reasons only obvious in hindsight. Kodak failed to capitalize on the digital technology that it invented in the 1970s. The credit unions' challenge to stay current in a shifting financial industry is not so different.

Innovation alone is not enough to keep an organization on the road to success; it must find a way to balance the tension of innovation with the stable, day-to-day demands of keeping a business productive. The ability to exploit the current business and also explore options for the future is called organizational ambidexterity.

Gain insights on how your organization can become more resilient with the latest report from Dennis Campbell and Luis Dopico, Structures for Innovation.
