About this Research Topic
The only thing unchanged in a turbulent environment is change itself. With the market becoming increasingly unpredictable, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic, the ability to bring ideas to market quickly has never been more important. This turbulence has also brought new opportunities and threats to organizations and has forced them to restructure their capabilities to suit various environments. However, the inflexible rules and routines, departmentalization, risk-averse leaders, hierarchical decision-making, resources, values, and processes in organizations often limit intrapreneurs. Faced with complacency, rigidity, and stagnation arising from organizational bureaucracy, organizations may need more entrepreneurial thinking to achieve short-term survival and long-term financial sustainability.
Entrepreneurial organizations, compared to their competitors with only managerial thinking, can create, define, discover, and leverage opportunities. The necessity of organizational psychology is highlighted through the discussion and exploration surrounding the psychological activities underlying entrepreneurially oriented organizations. Past studies suggest that the ability to act entrepreneurially is connected to the flexibility and agility of organizational culture. According to these studies, such an organization is based on people's networks and ecosystems, in which team members coordinate horizontally to provide new value to customers in an interactive manner. Such value, including the development of products, services, and solutions, forms the core of a company's competitive strategy. Its procedures include idea conception and successful product development with the goal of enabling the company to bring new products to market. Hence, an organization that can recognize the importance of having a good team of talented individuals and a good organizational culture will ensure its long-term sustainability and success.
This Research Topic focuses on the interactions of organization, entrepreneurship, education, and talent. We welcome empirical and theoretical articles, opinions, and commentaries on (but not limited to) the following areas of interest:
• how to develop talent from the perspective of education or personality psychology, and nurture intrapreneurs;
• how the process of bringing ideas to market can be reflected in the daily practices of corporate organizations from the perspective of organizational psychology;
• organizational culture or cross-culture in relation to creativity, innovation, entrepreneurship, maker, and venture capital from the perspective of cultural psychology.
Keywords: Entrepreneurship, education, talent, idea, innovation
