From Invention to Innovation: Atomic Intrapreneurship at Rosatom


In this session, Moscow School of Management SKOLKOVO will demonstrate that the challenge of successful innovation is possible at large organisations, even at state-owned companies like Rosatom with old and powerful cultures. It is a matter of combining the development of leaders with the building of internal processes that facilitate innovation and intrapreneurship.

Rosatom, one of the world’s leading and largest firms in the nuclear energy industry, started its strategic transformation in 2011. The tremendous scientific accomplishments of Rosatom scientists had built a formidable intellectual foundation. To fully capitalize on its immense potential and achieve global technological leadership, the company initiated a programme of innovative development aimed at facilitating the commercialization of inventions across the multiple sectors in which it operates.

The joint initiative targeted existing hard and soft barriers to change. The hard challenges faced by Rosatom concerned the development of an internal organizational structure that favoured innovation, while the soft challenges related to empowering its brilliant scientists and engineers – the “change agents” - via entrepreneurial and managerial skills

During three years (2012-2015) a total of 146 high potential leaders from every division of the corporation underwent the programme. Three cohorts were designed to create teams of future leaders that would define and implement the innovation vision.

The relationship between Rosatom and SKOLKOVO brought more than learning, it had an impact on the bottom line and hence the engagement is expected to continue in the future.

In this session, Moscow School of Management SKOLKOVO will share their success stories and point out some of the interesting challenges they came across.
