business within an existing organization.
These entrepreneurial activities consist of creating something new of value either by redefining
the company’s current product or service, developing new markets, or forming more formally
autonomous or semiautonomous units or firms.
Self-renewal is the transformation of an organization through the renewal of the key ideas on
which it is built.
