Quick Thoughts From IESE Barcelona: How To Build Entrepreneurship Spirit

Added on by Alexander Osterwalder.

Last month I was a speaker at IESE Business School's 2015 European Growth Summit. The event was an opportunity for me to speak about strategy and innovation in large companies, and the challenges that lie ahead. Take a peek at the quick video from my time at the summit.

At the IESE Business School European Growth Summit, I talked about how:

  • Large companies need the right tools to perform strategy and innovation, just like the best surgeons need tools to perform their jobs well.
  • A component of entrepreneurship is integral if large companies want to reinvent themselves for the future.
  • There is no right moment for reinvention, it should always take place--or large companies risk becoming a disposable. 

What other ways can companies build a spirit of entrepreneurship?
