Digitalization, Digital Disruption & Digital Transformation:

Digitalization:

  • is the process that optimizes value creation processes through the Internet and computers

Digital Transformation:

  • describes the change brought about by using the emerging new technologies thus transforming the functionality and interactions of people, society, and organizations, thereby creating lasting, massive effects on the economic system, economic drivers, and even creative disruption & destruction.

The concept of disruption goes hand in hand with progressive digitization concurrently & simultaneously as disruptive digital business models threaten established companies in their core areas.

The implementation of the following principles increases the prospects of success for disruptive companies/economies. They are:

  • low margin,
  • asset-light,
  • scalable,
  • innovative, and
  • compliance easy

In practice, these principles mean that the platform companies only need small margins, multiply and maximize profits through economies of scale along with an advantage of having a low fixed cost structure.

The above mentioned features are necessary (and must) to ensure flexibility and to improve through technical progress. This digital progress is the critical source of innovation for changing industries and markets to adapt to digital disruption & digital transformation.

Entre & IntraPreneurship:

Entrepreneurship:

Entrepreneurship generally falls into three broad categories:

  • professional,
  • behavioral, or
  • start-up

While:

  • the foundation-related framework is limited to the foundation of a new/evolving business,
  • the professional type equates ‘entrepreneurship’ with the management of a company and an organization.

A business entrepreneur is the professional title of the entrepreneur who runs an organization as an independent entrepreneur.

An entrepreneur acts in the business markets intending to maximize profits at own risk/expense.

In the recent past, the entrepreneur has been increasingly in the focus of science and business. Research has set new priorities. Personality, general conditions, and characteristics associated with a successful entrepreneur have moved into focus now, with emerging technological advances. Two aspects have become highly relevant for an entrepreneur:

  1. Will to succeed: A greater need for success drives entrepreneurs compared to the rest of the general population from within the crowd. Entrepreneurs are motivated to perform to be successful.
  2. Risk appetite: Entrepreneurs show moderate risk appetite. Yet, they take calculated risks that give them a specific/certain chance of success.

Further aspects where the entrepreneur differs from regularly employed persons are the expectation of self-efficacy, the striving for independence, problem orientation, social adaptability, emotional and psychological stability, tolerance of uncertainty, dominance, and creativity.

Corporate Entrepreneurship is realized through various mechanisms which likely includes:

  • the reorientation of proprietary capabilities and strategies,
  • creating new internal ventures, and
  • innovation within the organization.

The end goal can be the development of new markets and also retain the focus on existing markets.

Intrapreneurship:

Intrapreneurs are derived/considered as ‘entrepreneurs’ who drive innovation and business models.

Intrapreneurship describes the ability of a company to generate innovations, take risks, and assess them correctly, in order to meet the organization goals.

An intrapreneur is a person who takes responsibility for implementing new innovative ideas and their associated profitable realization.

Recent innovations and hence research projects intrapreneurship as a multidimensional, action-oriented concept with certain characteristic dimensions, which operates at the organizational frontier and breaks new ground in the areas of services, standards, technologies, orientations, and structures. These dimensions are as follows:

  • Creation of new businesses
  • Business Areas: are the essential features and components of intrapreneurship.
  • Product and Service Innovation: refers to the development in the technological field of a company.
  • new products and services: to be on par with the technological innovations on a timely basis.
  • Self-renewal: refers to the transformation of the organization within its core ideas.
  • Risk Appetite: Loss is an inherent risk feature and is a component of innovation, business creation, and proactive action.
  • Proactivity: characterizes a pioneering role and initiative.
  • Competitive Dominance: It characterizes that the organization measures itself against its competitors in the benchmark and thus dominates them.

Intrapreneurship is an essential factor for organizational growth due to the dimensions as mentioned above as it ensures that a company regularly adapts to new market conditions and thus stands out from the crowd/competition. Intrapreneurship majorly impacts an organization’s accountability, profitability and ability to survive.

Technological Advancements & Innovations are at flux and hence its implementation at various organizations are also in flux and hence at crisis. Traditional Organizations have become immune to continuous changes and are believed to be only implementing these genuine innovations and further developments with great efforts.

While traditional companies want to maintain the status quo with the global economy changes due to new, disruptive business models, the platform economy is still considered to be the central business model of the digital economy. The Platform Economy model makes use of digital progress to network people, resources, and organizations, thus generating value addition to all those entities involved.

In the Platform Model, the best possible control of interactions between external suppliers and demanders are the success factors rather than Ownership and efficient management of many production factors from the traditional business models. Evolving Platforms quickly determine their markets in which they appear and tend (to manage) to shift the creation of value completely.

The future is all about the Platform:

How can traditionally conservative companies transition from their existing pipeline models to the platform economy?

One of the possible answers to this is the intrapreneur’s type of employee which reflects the entrepreneurial idea of innovation, the mindset, and the desire to change within an organization. The intrapreneur enacts an entrepreneur within his company and is proactively looking for an opportunity to open up new business areas and release future potential.

Conclusion:

Intrapreneurship is an essential factor for organizational growth as it ensures that a company regularly adapts to new market conditions and thus stands out from the competition. Intrapreneurship significantly impacts an organization’s profitability and ability to survive.
