Have you ever wondered how innovative companies and organizations come up with their ideas?
What are the capabilities, practices, and cultural elements that enable them to come up with good ideas that fuel their innovation and growth?
Any organization that aspires to innovate better must have thought about these questions. The two critical activities related to these questions are: ideation and idea management. Ideation involves processes and tools to define, capture, manage, and prioritize a set of “ideas” for new products and/or services, or improvement of existing products and/or services. Idea Management is about organizing and updating well-defined ideas in a database with clear articulation of the value proposition for each idea with supporting evidence.
While best practices and lessons learned have not changed much, the web and mobile technologies have created new mediums that are revolutionizing the “ideation” process. Likewise, Enterprise Innovation Management (EIM) platforms are providing tools for systemic “idea management” as part of their portfolio and program management offerings. There is substantial evidence that these modern digital solutions are increasing innovation productivity and effectiveness by structuring and systemizing idea management processes and decisions.
In this webinar we will share examples of modern ideation and idea management approaches, as well as highlighting their importance to innovating better and more efficiently.
This webinar will also serve as a primer for our upcoming Innovation Engagement & Governance Knowledge Council workshop entitled “Where Good Ideas Come From? - Strategies and tools to innovate better, and grow faster and more efficiently in today’s connected economy!“ which takes place on May 25 in Santa Clara, California.
