ICW (70%): An independent reflective essay evaluating corporate entrepreneurship within an existing organisation. Maximum 2,500 words, excluding appendices.
Suppose you choose to analyze corporate entrepreneurship of a large bank (e.g. Santander) in the face of the emergence of blockchain technology.
A good assignment would
(a) Describe the environmental trend / disruption and the threats / opportunities it represents to the competitive landscape within the industry or segment, whichever is more relevant. Would it lead to an emergence of a new dominant design / alternative business model? How would this trend / technology / disruption change Santander’s competitive position if it does not respond?
(b) Evaluate “entrepreneurial orientation” of Santander by applying the corporate entrepreneurship tool with the focus on the 4 blocks of entrepreneurial architecture. Please substantiate your statements with information sources (press releases, company filings, press articles, other)
(c)  Analyze how may the firm address the trend / disruption through corporate entrepreneurship given its internal architecture and existing business model(s)? Discuss potential pitfalls or, if information is available, actual issues and problems faced by XYZ in their corporate entrepreneurship activities which would be relevant to the environmental trend / technology / disruption you are analyzing. With respect to Santander, they happen to be the first UK bank to introduce bitcoin into their international payment activities for retail customers, through an app.
(d) What else they can do in terms of their corporate entrepreneurship activities in order to continue to take advantage of the emergence of blockchain? How should they organize such activities? For ideas, you may want to look what other banks are doing and whether it would make sense for Santander to adopt any of these approaches, considering their activities to date and their entrepreneurial architecture.
