For companies aiming to streamline their innovation management here are five ways that ideaPoint’s Innovation Management solution can help facilitate the journey from ideation to market-ready innovation, offering a structured approach that enhances collaboration and transparency. 


Post Innovation Challenges and Areas of Need

To kickstart the innovation process, ideaPoint empowers organizations by creating and posting "Innovation Challenges" or "Areas of Need." This strategic move serves to boost participation from all employees, tapping into the collective intelligence of the workforce. By engaging the entire team in the ideation strategy, businesses can uncover a diverse range of ideas, across all business areas, fostering an environment of creativity and inclusivity. 


Enhance Visibility and Collaboration

Innovation thrives on communication and collaboration. ideaPoint recognizes this critical aspect and provides a platform that enhances visibility, participation, communication, and collaboration among innovators. Message boards and shared documents become the backbone of this process, enabling innovation teams to work on ideas in parallel. This fosters seamless communication, breaking down silos and ensuring that every team member is on the same page throughout the innovation life cycle.


Identify High-Potential Ideas- Collaborative Evaluations and Decision-Making

This ensures a comprehensive and diverse perspective, paving the way for accelerated innovation.

Instill Discipline in Your Innovation Process

Discipline and accountability are the pillars that support a successful innovation management process. ideaPoint's software introduces structured workflows that instill discipline in the ideation strategy. This discipline ensures that every idea progresses through the defined stages of the innovation life cycle, preventing potential bottlenecks and delays. Moreover, the platform's features enable tracking and monitoring at every step. Assigning responsibilities, setting milestones, and establishing clear timelines create a culture of accountability. With ideaPoint, businesses can confidently navigate the innovation process, knowing that each team member is responsible for their part in bringing ideas to fruition.
