Driven entrepreneurs is vital for an organizations chances of growing. The purpose of this rapport is to present the authors view of CGI's ability of innovation and the importance of corporate entrepreneurship for the company’s ability to grow. In the end of the rapport there is a few identified pointers that CGI can work with in order to improve their ability of innovation and thereby get a better use of their corporate intelligence.
The main conclusions are that CGI values corporate entrepreneurship highly especially innovation in big scale that can generate a direct profit for the company. This is mainly because the business processes at CGI are shaped after big scale projects. The main barrier for entrepreneurs in IT consultant firms is that their time has to be billable and thereby productive at all times which decreases their time to spend on innovation. The main driver for entrepreneurs are too give birth to ow ideas, to create something and the feeling of winning. Companies which strive for being more entrepreneurial needs to understand the entrepreneurial mindset and free time for the enrepreneurs that they can grow their ideas.
The work behind this rapport is similar to an action research where the work have been divided into an action phase which was followed up by an analyze phase where the empirical data and literature within the field of innovation and corporate entrepreneurship have been analyzed.
