Business innovation

The aim of business innovation is to gather as many ideas as possible and transform the seeds of invention into valued solutions. But how that definition is realised depends on the context of an organisation.

Employee driven innovation succeeds best when considered part of an employee engagement strategy. Employees who are not engaged are highly unlikely to contribute to your innovation initiative.

Idea management

Idea management is the process by which ideas are taken from idle thought to practical innovation. It sets a structured process for handling ideas, no matter where in the business they come from. Effective idea management allows you to drive change without being flooded with ideas. It helps you remain focused on your goals.
