Pre-requisite Courses and Assumed Knowledge and Capabilities


Course Description

This is a Work Integrated Learning course, which addresses the key elements of Intrapreneurship within established organisations. The primary learning mode is experiential action learning, hence to a large extent, requires you to be a self-directed learner. Overall, the course provides you with the opportunity to apply your theoretical knowledge and skills to a proposed project in a real world organisational setting. The course will provide you with knowledge and experience in research, negotiating with project stakeholders, planning, monitoring, controlling and delivering successful project outcomes. Team dynamics, personal, communication and leadership styles are integral to this course.

This course includes a Work Integrated Learning experience in which your knowledge and skills will be applied and assessed in a real or simulated workplace context and where feedback from industry and/or community is integral to your experience.

Objectives/Learning Outcomes/Capability Development


On successful completion of this course you will be able to:

  1. Apply entrepreneurship concepts to various organisational structures to determine successful project outcomes.
  2. Propose a solution to an organisational problem and suggest a strategy to achieve an organizational goal and make an organizational change.
  3. Collaboratively plan a project, implement, and communicate process or outcome-driven innovations within an organisational context.
  4. Demonstrate an understanding of workplace diversity, organizational culture and climate conditions that are conducive to an organisation’s entrepreneurial operation.
  5. Research and effectively use resources to identify and present opportunities that assist organisations with intrapreneurial initiatives and growth.

Overview of Learning Activities

The course requires students to ‘learn through doing’, hence expected to be competent in the work environment by the time they complete the course. Students are required to participate in lectures, host organisations’ work engagement and tutorials. You must focus extensively on the course material and be able to critically analyse tutorial activities. You must self-select a diverse team of 2-3 students (inclusive of both international and local students). Once the project proposal has been defined, your team is expected to work collaboratively with their host organisation (off campus) to acquire skills and experience in business, government and community organisations. In achieving the objectives of their proposed projects, each team will also work closely with an assigned mentor who will provide guidance and support. The mentor will be integral to the WIL project.

It is imperative that you come to class well prepared with weekly assignments completed and ready to share your thoughts with other learners. An effective mechanism for achieving a good grade is to attend classes regularly. Usually, it is important to thoroughly read the assigned materials and reflect how the contents relate to your experiences, as well as, those of your host organisation. These thoughts enable you to make a positive contribution to class discussions. There are three assessments in this course, with no formal examination. The assessments are explained below.

Overview of Learning Resources

Various learning resources are available online through MyRMIT Studies\Blackboard. In addition to topic notes; assessment details and a study schedule you may also be provided with links to relevant online information; readings; audio and video clips and communication tools to facilitate collaboration with your peers and to share information.

Resources are also available online through RMIT Library databases and other facilities. If you require assistance with the RMIT library facilities contact the Business Liaison Librarian for your school. Contact details for Business Liaison Librarians are located online on the RMIT Library website.

Additional resources and/or sources to assist your learning will be identified by your course coordinator will be made available to you as required during the teaching period.
