The Entrepreneurial Firm

THE BIGGEST CHALLENGE OF THE MODERN FIRM

In order to be successful in today’s dynamic environment, firms have to be able to quickly adapt to changing customer demands and technological developments.

40% of Fortune 500 companies in 2000 did not exist anymore 10 years later.

Staying ahead requires continuous innovation. The biggest challenge for today’s organizations is balancing the execution of their current business model (exploitation) with the search for new business models (exploration). This balance is called ambidexterity. A crucial precondition for becoming an ambidexterous organization, is that an organization is also an entrepreneurial one.

THE IMPORTANCE OF AN ENTREPRENEURIAL ORGANIZATION

Research shows that only 25% of innovation is determined by traditional R&D. 75% of innovation success is explained by social factors such as strategy, mindset, processes and the internal environment. Building an Entrepreneurial Firm means taking all those elements into consideration.

An Entrepreneurial Firm is not just more innovative, but also more productive, shows better financial results and is better at attracting and retaining talent.

HOW WE HELP YOU BUILD YOUR ENTREPRENEURIAL FIRM

At ECE we take an integral perspective on corporate entrepreneurship. We look at the organization through the lens of the ECE pyramid. The pyramid does not only focus on individual new value propositions and business models, but also how these opportunities for growth are managed and relate to each other, the existing core business and the firm’s overall strategy. Alignment across the pyramid is crucial.
