intrapreneur |ˌintrəprəˈnər; -ˈnoŏr|

a manager within a company who promotes innovative product development and marketing.

In these testing times, here’s an idea.
Establish a monthly “intraprenuer award” for the team member who comes up with the most innovative idea to improve new patient sign-ups, patient retention, marketing or sales.
Give away a good prize – a retail voucher or a good night out.
Make it FUN.
Your team have ideas.
Tap in to them.

Anyone interested?
