Background and contextThe complexity, turbulence and rate of change of the business environment has intensified in recent decades (Ribeiro-Soriano and Kraus, 2018). Contemporary strategy literature is replete with studies on the effect of entrepreneurial orientation on firm performance in consideration of the effects of internal and external factors (Klofsten, Urbano and Heaton, 2020). Bernardus and Wahjudono’s (2017) study of 24 Indonesian businesses that examined the mediating role of corporate entrepreneurship and reported a positive relationship between entrepreneurial action and the effects of corporate reputation, strategic leadership, and corporate culture on corporate performance. An important factor that is receiving global attention is innovation. For example, Zehira, Canb and Karabiga’s (2015) survey of 991 middle and senior managers of 331 middle and large-scale firms operating in the manufacturing industry in Turkey, concluded that innovation performance mediates the relationship between entrepreneurial action and firm performance. Organizations; small and large, private and public, for profit and not-for profit, etc.; create marketplace opportunities by jumpstarting and accelerating innovation. Successful execution of solutions to problems, and not just producing ideas, is what sustainable organizations do. Leaders of modern organizations must either find or develop strategies to implement innovation at all levels of the organization. This innovation can be seen in intrapreneurship, a practice that stimulates the creation of new business opportunities within the organisation or collaborating with enterprising and innovative external organisations.

Task 2 Formulate and justify a theoretical tool to evaluate the entrepreneurial/innovation opportunities identified in Task 1. Task 3 Apply the ‘theoretical evaluation tool’ formulated in Task 2 to evaluate the entrepreneurial/innovation opportunities and recommend one way the senior management Page 4 of 13 can further take advantage of identified opportunities to enhance the future competitiveness of your case study organisation. Task 4Present the work to a high academic standard in terms of: appropriate use of referencing, extent and evidence of research, structure of the submission, coverage of issues, presentation and use of appropriate language. ASSESSMENT CRITERIA The work will be assessed in an integrative manner as indicated in the grading rubric.Source material research portals may include: • FTSE: https://www.londonstockexchange.com/indices/ftse-250/constituents/table) • Case-study organisation or company website • Mass media organisation website, e.g. BBC, Bloomberg, Newsweek, Times, etc. • Accessible market research data, e.g.; Craft: https://craft.co/ CIA World Factbook: https://www.cia.gov/library/publications/the-world-factbook/ D&B Hoovers: http://www.hoovers.com/company-information.html Datamonitor: https://www.crunchbase.com/organization/datamonitor Euromonitor Passport: https://go.euromonitor.com/passport.html Mintel Industry Analysis: https://www.mintel.com/ OECD: https://www.oecd.org/ The World Bank: https://www.worldbank.org/ • Other sources of market research data, e.g.: IBIS World, GMID, Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU), Statista, Bloomberg, KPMG, Pricewaterhouse Coopers (PwC), Deloitte, Bain & Company, McKinsey & Company, Ernst & Young, Boston Consulting Group (BCG), Accenture, Booz Allen Hamilton, CBInsights, etc. Task 2 points to consider You may consider any of the innovation theories discussed in your lectures and use any methodology to rank or recommend from the identified entrepreneurial opportunities. One approach is the SAFe framework (Johnson et al. 2014). You may wish to consider entrepreneurial action/effectuation (Sarasvathy, 2001) relating to the opportunity, it is important to appreciate that this is largely about your case study’s ability to organise and combing resources (e.g. human, material, financial, intellectual, etc.) and use its competencies (e.g. intellect, skills, knowledge, technology, experience, etc.) (Tidd & Bessant, 2018). Therefore, the approach you propose needs to be capable of accounting for the resources and competencies required to organise the resources and action the entrepreneurial opportunity.
