We build an Intrapreneurial system that embeds research, knowledge and leadership along the structure of the organization and is based on its strategy. In its core, there is a network of professional innovation leaders that coordinate knowledge and resources throughout the organization
The basis of an innovative organization is curiosity and exploration. DUCO systems provoke awareness throughout the organization and tools for processing. The system encourages questioning and rewards searching for answers.
Innovation is based on creating extraordinary connections, therefore knowledge must be offered all the time. DUCO offers certification of Innovation Leaders, teaching creative thinking and delivering workshops and expert lectures.
We design organizational units which leads the innovation process. Innovation units are challenging because they must be connected with every person in the organization and, at the same time, be independent and flexible. On the one hand, it has to serve the global strategy of the organization, and on the other – innovate the industry.
DUCO is determined to create a culture that cultivates innovative resources by building an intrapreneurial community within the organization. Communities are built around various innovative needs, involving people who feel that the organization’s challenges are their personal goals.

DUCO has invested countless hours and resources in analyzing entrepreneurial ecosystems and VC’s around the world. With the knowledge gained, we developed the intrapreneurial pipeline
- Repeatable & Scalable Innovation Process
A process that is designed to minimize risks, is pre-budgeted, scalable, and has measurable outcomes. It is engineered to capture the right and promising ideas and to ration the investment in line with the organization’s resources
- ‘Speak the language’ of the organization
The intrapreneurial pipeline is incorporated into a formal business process which is budgeted in the annual plan. Within the pipeline, quarterly reports are provided to promote transparency and control over each and every project and correspond with middle and top management KPI’S
DUCO Intrapreneurial Pipeline is based on progress gates and monitored by a steering committee. In its core is the freedom to pivot as the value of innovation is based on constant change, giving up previous assumptions and finding up-to-date solutions. The stages include: proof of concepts, customer validation, product development, pivots and organizational buy-ins
A clear organizational process based on an intrapreneurial pipeline combined with an effective steering committee insures a robust investment in the organization’s future.
