Abstract

The main aim of this paper is to understand what motivates engineers to innovate in multinational corporations. It is based on a single case study within a product development unit of a multinational automotive company in the UK. The research is exploratory in nature and seeks to provide insights into what motivates certain employees to act entrepreneurially in a large rules-based operation.
