How Corporations Beat Startups at the Innovation Game
Corporate Explorers are the new heroes of the corporate world who turn disruption into opportunity. They are part entrepreneurs, using innovation disciplines to jump start cutting-edge ideas, and part change leaders, capable of creating support for investment. They see that corporations already own the ideas, resources, and—critically—the talent to build new ventures. This framework to discovering and executing these practices come from Change Logic co-founder Andrew Binns, Charles O’Reilly, and Michael Tushman — who have decades of experience helping entrepreneurial-minded executives activate employees to become Corporate Explorers. Entrepreneurs take notice—it’s time for Corporate Explorers to set the pace and chart the course for disruption.

What is a Corporate Explorer?
Corporate Explorers are managers creating businesses outside established corporate rules, using the assets of the firm to beat startups to disruptive growth opportunities. They are willing to stand-out from the crowd, act with independence, and break the firm’s taboos to commercialize disruptive ideas. They are purpose-driven individuals on a mission to transform the status quo.
