Abstract

Digital transformation offers organizations opportunities to involve intrapreneurs, i.e., employees sharing the zeal of entrepreneurs, but innovating within organizational boundaries through the generation of new ideas. Despite organizations’ interest in exploiting their employees’ innovation potential, tools as digital intrapreneurship platforms guiding and hosting this innovation process are limited and their design is challenging. Thus, we provide the results of an action design research project with an IT service provider and describe the iterative design process. The designed intrapreneurship platform is ingrained in the socio-technical system theory. Its evaluation derives design principles, guiding organizations to design viable platforms facilitating intrapreneurial behavior.
