Organizing an innovation challenge: How does it work?
1. The ideation phase
Choose a topic for your innovation challenge or a problem to solve and get your staff on board to bring you new ideas or solutions.
How does it work?
Employees can propose ideas, alone or in teams, by filling out the online submission form.
The idea owner can invite colleagues to join the adventure and build a team ready to deliver results.
To get a quick feedback on the relevance of the idea, the initiator can perform a self-assessment. After completing the evaluation grid designed for the challenge, the idea owner obtains a score in real time.
2. The voting phase
Engage your community to identify ideas with potential and reward the winning teams for their participation.
Each employee can click and vote for their favorite ideas.
Upon request, experts can evaluate the ideas, either according to “star” rating criteria or a more detailed evaluation questionnaire.
Thanks to gamification, the most active employees are rewarded.The gems they earned can be used to sponsor and fund ideas.
At the end of the voting phase, the pilot has all the information to select the winning ideas.
3. Manage your challenge
Set up your challenge independently: content, topics, access rights, phases, etc.
Activate modules and features according to the stages of your challenge with a single click.
Drive your challenge and follow-up on key indicators available in the dashboard. Organize the selection of ideas and deploy your communication plan.
