subjects Gifford Pinchot writes about Corporate Entrepreneurship & Intrapreneuring, Management Gurus, Human Resources
Gifford Pinchot's profile Gifford Pinchot is an author, speaker and consultant on innovation management. His best-selling book, INTRAPRENEURING: Why You Don't Have to Leave the Corporation to Become an Entrepreneur (Harper & Row, 1985) defined the ground rules for an emerging field of enterprise: the courageous pursuit of new ideas in established organizations.

Intrapreneuring has now been published worldwide in fifteen languages. The word intrapreneur, which was coined by Mr. Pinchot to describe the intra-corporate entrepreneur, has been included in the American Heritage Dictionary and Webster's Encyclopedic Unabridged Dictionary.

In his second book, The Intelligent Organization (Berrett Koehler, 1994), written with Elizabeth Pinchot, the vision is broadened to include a revolutionary way of organizing all work from the most innovative to the most mundane.

Pinchot & Company, the firm he leads, helps companies to reduce bureaucratic obstacles, and to design and implement more effective and sustainable business practices. Pinchot & Company audits and helps improve the environment for innovation, trains intrapreneurial teams to succeed, helps managers to be better sponsors of innovation, facilitates strategic and business planning meetings and designs reward systems more favorable to innovation and wise long-term management. Its client list includes many of the largest and best-run firms in the United States.

Mr. Pinchot approaches the subject of innovation from personal experience. He has started four companies, and has two patents under license. His consulting career began in new product and technology strategy. Prior to forming Pinchot & Company, he was founding president of a management consulting company which specializes in innovating solutions to business growth problems.

From 1991 to 1998, in addition to his work at Pinchot & Company, Mr. Pinchot served as chairman of Consensus Development a software firm in the internet security business. In 1998, Mr. Pinchot became CEO of that company, grew the business internally and through acquisition and sold it at above industry multiples to a public company.

After graduating with honors from Harvard University in 1965 with an A.B. degree in economics, Mr. Pinchot studied neurophysiology at Johns Hopkins University.

Building on the conservationist heritage of his family, Mr. Pinchot devotes one-third of his time to facilitating groups addressing environmental issues.

In April 1999 Mr. Pinchot co-authored "Intrapreneuring in Action - A Handbook for Business Innovation" which was published by Berrett Koehler in November 1999.
