By Jibran Bashir and Sara Afzal


Purpose: The Purpose of this paper is to introduce a concept, whereby extending the Dave Ulrich’s HR business partner model by adding fifth Role – The HR Intrapreneur Role – in the existing model. This will be done by combining two separate concepts “Four Roles HR Business Partner Model” and “Intrapreneurial HR”, resulting in a five roles HR Business Partner Model. Design/methodology/approach: This paper is introducing a new concept through theoretical research. Findings: HR Intrapreneur Role can be added as the Fifth Role in the existing HR Business Partner Model. Originality: The four roles HR Business Partner Model has been taken from Dave Ulrich (1997) whereas the Intrapreneurial HR has been derived from articles of various authors like Wellner, Stam, Pinchot, Moore, Mitchell, Koch, Jong, Chapel, and Beatty. The Concept of This Paper is original as it combines both the aforesaid studies into a totally new formation, by introducing HR Intrapreneurship as a fifth Role in HR Business partner model and making the existing four roles – a pre-requisite of HR Intrapreneral role in the extended model proposed by us.
