MetadataShow full item record
Corporate entrepreneurship is becoming a fast growing agent for change and by utilising certain factors within this field, corporate entrepreneurship can be recognised as a mean of promoting, sustaining competitiveness and transforming organisations into opportunity driven and value creating innovative organisations. The purpose of this study is to conduct an Entrepreneurial Health Audit within Non-Profit Organisations. The aim is to identify the levels of entrepreneurial behaviour, innovative levels within the selected Non-Profit Organisations and to address all gaps in an attempt of becoming more entrepreneurial. A number of articles, published work and web articles have been used to help determine the definitions of important terms within entrepreneurship. All research was done in a formal manner and the sample size was small consisting of two Non-Profit Organisations with total data sample size of 50. Data was collected through an Entrepreneurial Health Audit questionnaire. The data was analysed through various techniques. This study does contribute towards the study of corporate entrepreneurship within a Non-Profit Organisation in South African context. It was found that the Non-Profit Organisations have moderate to high entrepreneurial intensity. There was also a big difference between management and employees perception on what entrepreneurship is and their innovative levels. Several recommendations were made in order to improve the entrepreneurial climate within the organisations and certain programs were highlighted to help with the process. The findings and results of the study were used to highlight to management what entrepreneurial skills are currently in the organisation and what skills needs to be implemented to improve entrepreneurial behaviour within the organisations
