Entrepreneurship - Competency Center;Jun2015, p1
Entrepreneurship can add value throughout an organization; with it, new opportunities are recognized, developed, and exploited. On a large scale, this may mean launching a new business or creating a new line of products. However, the entrepreneurship competency can also benefit companies in more routine ways, such as when employees suggest a cost-saving process, develop a new way of doing a task, or propose a plan for reaching more customers. A company that supports entrepreneurship will benefit by growing existing business and/or creating new business opportunities, retaining key employees and attracting new ones.
