JLA: How can entrepreneurial skills be fostered within large organisations?
RC: Culture is more powerful than strategy. If people take risks and think the unthinkable, praise them, make role models of them and the culture will change.
JLA: Are entrepreneurial skills useful in the public sector?
RC: Massively, but we need to call them something different. In the public sector no-one gets promoted for taking risks. An entrepreneur, by definition, will make mistakes, and in the public sector you will be crushed, if not fired, for such things.
JLA: Describe an entrepreneur's attitude to risk:
RC: Having worked with many entrepreneurs, I wouldn't always be surrounded by the strongest intellects, but they have more fire in the belly and more drive than I have experienced elsewhere. Entrepreneurs see opportunity and push against it until a business is formed or nothing happens.
