Description [S.l.] : Distributed by ERIC Clearinghouse, 1996 
17 p. 

An "intrapreneur" is an "intracorporate entrepreneur" who works inside rather than outside a corporation, producing new products and services that enable the company as a whole to grow. In educational settings, there are both negative and positive sides to intrapreneuring. The worst intrapreneurs in colleges and universities are those who write "bestselling" textbooks, giving publishers what will sell; those who seek grants for hot topics and build elaborate in-house organizations; expert consultants and grant lecturers, who command high fees often on university time; those who travel around the world imposing the American system; and clinical professors who use the university to extend private practices. The best intrapreneurs, on the other hand, are those who produce plans for solving major problems in higher education; consultants who successfully place chancellors or strengthen the relationship between colleges and industry; lecturers who relate the institutional mission to the public in an inspiring manner; quantifiers whose diverse data bases provide research opportunities for students; and clinical professors who serve interns and residence specialists. Leaders in industry and education have been trying to reach a balance between the worst and best intrapreneurs, while universities have initiated conflict-of-interest and positive disclosure regulations to guard against exploitation by faculty intrapreneurs.
