Join us at SMS in Toronto for an engaging panel discussion on entrepreneurial strategies focused on experimentation in corporate firms (session 2527)

Over the last two decades or so, corporate firms have established new approaches, such as corporate accelerators, idea challenges, or internal mission-based startups, to emulate independent entrepreneurship to stimulate intraorganizational innovation – with varying degrees of success. Such approaches often underlie activities for experimentation as a way to assess and resolve uncertainty about novel ideas by testing conjectures to generate validated insights. This panel will tackle how such approaches influence the generation of new (entrepreneurial) practices and influence strategy-making across the organization along different time dimensions. Building on this panel's theme, the session will start with a brief presentation by each of the panelists. This is followed by an interactive discussion between the audience and panelists to identify opportunities for new theoretical and methodological work on this topic - the Q&A part is moderated by the co-organizers.
