M. Schatten and M. Žugaj:

"Since organizations try to achieve more and more innovation, they realize that there is neither time nor resources to take advantage of all opportunities creative minds can create. To keep their innovative human resources, organizations create spin-out companies for them to undertake entrepreneurship. These spin-outs eventually yield companies for themselves [40; pp. 1-3].

Ad hoc suprastructures are concepts that are built on top of existing organizational structures and they emerge as a response to some problem or change in the immediate environment of the organization [11; p. 119]. Ad hoc organizations are characterized by adaptability, readiness, individual initiative, desire for experimentation, creativity, and outside growth and support [41; p. 7]. They usually disappear when the environment problem is solved." (
