By more closely examining the structural “support” necessary to enhance corporate entrepreneurship - that is, to enhance the entrepreneurial behaviors of a firm's employees - firms may increase their success with innovation. We specifically suggest that enabling employees to detect, facilitate and pursue opportunities while fostering an organic, organizational structure with shared vision and values increases a firm's breadth and depth of commercialized innovations. Our rationale for these proposed relationships, as well as suggestions for implementing an entrepreneurial corporate structure, are presented.
