To be able to develop a logical argument, One University of Technology (UoT) will be discussed first, then concepts like corporate entrepreneurship will first be discussed and this discussion will be followed by an interrogation of innovation, sustainability, efficiency and effectiveness. Managerial implications of the findings are discussed and limitations and future research directions are indicated.
