from ideas to projects - the process

Our programs support the entire process of creating solutions - from gathering ideas via the crowdsourcing model, through analysis and selection, to projects ready for implementation.

1 Generating ideas

Involve employees in large-scale brainstorming, giving them the opportunity to submit ideas, co-create solutions, comment, discuss, create interest groups, vote or express their interest in participating in the implementation of the most interesting ideas.

2 Evaluation and selection

The evaluation of many ideas requires time and dedicated subject matter experts who will make decisions efficiently. Our platform’s smart semantics engine enables you to cluster similar ideas, reducing time required to browse through numerous ideas. The platform offers a variety of methods to assess ideas in line with the issued challenge, and the evaluation team uses tools like Spider Chart, SWOT or Value Assessment methods that support effective assessment of ideas based on established criteria and their importance to evaluate each idea’s potential of each idea in the most precise and coherent way.

3 Idea implementation

Transform ideas into results. An efficient innovation process is one that includes measurable outcomes. Various platform functionalities allow you to turn ideas into concepts and then into projects ready for implementation. Depending on your needs, the programs we implement are integrated with existing processes in the company, increasing their effectiveness, efficiency and transparency.
