Contractors need to assess their capability to implement corporate entrepreneurship (CE), in order to develop the proper corporate strategy based on CE. This study is aimed to assess the capability level of contractors to implement CE using corporate entrepreneurship capability model (CECM). CECM has been developed based on the concept of Capability Maturity Model (CMM). The capability level of contractors to implement CE is assessed using 21 indicators which are classified into five dimensions: autonomy, competitive aggressiveness, innovativeness, proactiveness and risk-taking. CECM divides the capability of contractors to implement CE into four levels: initial, repeatable, managed and optimized. This study carried out a case study of 2 big contractors in Indonesia. The data was collected using a questionnaire and then an arithmetic mean of each indicator was calculated to determine the capability level of contractors to implement CE. The case study found the highest level of capability to implement CE is reached in two different indicators: innovativeness and proactiveness, meanwhile the lowest level for both contractors is risk-taking. This study also found the capability level of both contractors are at a level between managed and optimized.
