Abstract

The purpose of this study was to discover the role of the self efficacy and locus of control on the process of intrapreneurship. The data were collected from 211 employees working in the information sector with using the Intrepreneurship Scale, Self-efficacy Scale and Locus of Control Scale. The results of the structural model showed that there are negative relationship between locus of control and the innovativeness (β=-0,12, p<0,01), risk taking (β=-0,11, p<0,01) and expanding network (β=-0,10, p<0,01) as the dimensions of the intrapreneurship. Moreover it was revealed that there are positive relations between the self efficacy and the innovativeness (β=0,25, p<0,01), proactivity (β=0,22, p<0,01), risk taking (β=0,17, p<0,01), autonomy (β=0,19, p<0,01) and expanding network (β=0,16, p<0,01). Ultimately, these findings determined the important roles of the people in high self-efficacy and internal locus of control on the success of the intrapreneurship processes.
