Un intrapreneur ordinaire au coeur d'une implantation réussie d'un changement organisationnel

Abstract : This article contributes to entrepreneurial change literature through the study of the relationship between forms of corporate entrepreneurship and types of entrepreneur. We focused on managerial innovations occurring in an unfavorable organizational context (former public administration), highlighting the innovative practices of a department manager that facilitated the implementation of change. Our research question is the following : in a generally unfavorable internal context, how can a middle manager work towards a successful change through a form of ordinary Intrapreneurship (Alter, 2000) ? To address that question, we analyzed the ordinary and creative practices, devised and implemented by this intrapreneur, and have put them in perspective with his individual characteristics. One of the main contributions of this research is to show a link between an ordinary form of innovation and the necessary entrepreneurial skills, leading us to rethink the possible links between types of innovation and managers' personalities.
