Purpose: The major purpose of this study was to understand and explore intrapreneurship in Qatar. In particular, investigate the outcomes and prerequisites for intrapreneurship in government, semi-government, and private organizations.

Design/methodology/approach: The study was conducted in two phases. In the first phase, a questionnaire-based survey was conducted. The study sample included 110 employees working in governmental, semi-governmental and private organizations. Data analysis (i.e. correlations and t-test) were conducted to outline the differences amongst various groups. In the second phase, using Interpretive Structural Modeling (ISM), a hierarchy-based model was developed to rank the barriers that affected intrapreneurship.

Findings: The results showed a significant positive correlation between the prerequisites and outcomes of intrapreneurship. The public sector had a lack of support for intrapreneurship as compared to the private sector. The results also showed a significant relationship between intrapreneurship and perceived customer satisfaction and intrapreneurship and job satisfaction. The hierarchy-based model helped to identify the most important barriers (which ones? List them!)that could be considered as root-causes for the limited growth of intrapreneurship.

Practical implications: The outcomes of this study can be used effectively by organizations to develop suitable plans to promote intrapreneurship leading to improved entrepreneurial behavior.

Originality/value: This is the first study on intrapreneurship in Qatar and the Gulf countries. Furthermore, the research has utilized a mixed method approach that was not previously used in the intrapreneurship studies.
