Abstract [sv]

Frågeställning och syfte

Syftet med studien är att synliggöra hur företag arbetar för att främja intraprenörskapet hos sina medarbetare, med två tillhörande problemformuleringar. Vilka faktorer är avgörande för att främja intraprenörskapet inom IT-branschen? Hur påverkar idégenerering, ledarskap och kultur intraprenörskap?

 

Teori

Det teoretiska kapitlet är uppbyggt efter intraprenörskap, idégenerering, ledarskap och kultur vilket utgör grunden för studien.

 

Metod

Denna studie har inriktat sig mot en kvalitativ metod med ett deduktivt synsätt, som inneburit semi-strukturerade intervjuer med fem ledande befattningshavare inom IT-branschen.

 

Resultat

Det som framkommit av studien är att vissa aspekter har en avgörande roll för intraprenörskapet. Medarbetarna måste först och främst vara förändringsbenägna, dessutom ska det finnas möjlighet för medarbetarna att framföra kreativa idéer som hanteras internt på företaget. Detta ska med fördel genomföras med ett delegerande ledarskap. Slutligen ska företagskulturen vara öppen och det ska föras en kontinuerlig diskussion kring förändringar och möjligheter mellan medarbetare och ledare.

Purpose and problem formulations

The purpose of this study has been to demonstrate the way in which companies work to promote intrapreneurship amongst their employees. We focused on two related problem formulations to conduct this study. The first being factors that are crucial for promoting intrapreneurship in the IT-Industry, and the second being how idea generation, leadership, and culture affect intrapreneurship.

 

Theory

The purpose, and basis, for this study is idea generation, leadership, and culture, which formed the theoretical chapter.

 

Method

This study focused on qualitative research with a deductive approach. Included in the study are five semi-structured interviews with various senior executives in the IT-industry.

 

Result

The result of the study found that certain aspects play a crucial role for the intrapreneur. Employees must first and foremost be change-oriented. In addition there should be opportunities for employees to come up with creative ideas that are managed internally at the company. This should be done with delegated leadership. Finally, the corporate culture must be open, as this will harbor an environment for discussion in both change and opportunity between employees and their leaders.
