For years now, we have worked with business people on ways of changing culture by doing. Changing by doing is at the heart of intrapreneurial business cultures. Culture changes because people simultaneously:
· do different things (beyond or beside or instead of “business as usual”)
· do things differently.
As a result of the traction they gain through changing-by-doing, people hone their intrapreneurial intelligence.
