The Cable Center has developed a new company-focused extension of its Intrapreneurship Academy (IA) program, IA - Company Track. IA - Company Track is designed to teach individual contributors as well as entire teams within the same organization the process of innovation and how to work together as intrapreneurs. With the goal of driving innovation, productivity, and success within the same company, IA - Company Track is intended for organizations that want to retain their top talent, cultivate teams, and empower rising leaders.
"As a logical extension to the Intrapreneurship Academy, we are excited to offer a customizable, company-specific version of IA," said Janice Silver, vice president of programs and marketing at the Cable Center. "This way, entire teams, or multiple teams within an organization, can learn and apply the innovation process to larger organizational efforts."
"As I've been talking to folks in the industry about IA, several have expressed an interest in bringing a class into their organizations," said Jana Henthorn, president and CEO of the Cable Center. "This is a great way to jump-start innovation projects, especially for organizations looking to nurture a culture of innovation."
IA - Company Track is applicable to departments, teams, and individual contributors working within the same organization, including engineering to marketing teams, to people managers to process managers, to cross-functional teams.
Similar to IA, IA - Company Track combines in-person and online facilitated self-study where participants from the same organization work together through real-world projects. Participants complete each learning module over eight weeks. The program culminates with the creation of an innovation business plan that the newly minted "intrapreneurs" can implement within their organization.
