Collective Campus helps you capture ideas and insights from employees, customers, partners and the public at large in order to harness and capitalise on this knowledgeENQUIRE NOW
Companies with large workforces tend not to effectively capture the challenges, insights, ideas and opportunities their employees see on an ongoing basis in a central location. This shortcoming forfeits valuable opportunities to deliver new value based on a wealth of untapped employee experience but can also result in a costly duplication of effort.
An Idea Platform alone is not enough. Effectively crowdsourcing ideas and managing outcomes before, during and after an Idea Campaign is critical to success.
Many organisations tend to throw people together in a room and expect magic to happen, but there are so many things to consider. Creativity is effectively a state of mind, not just a process - so getting your employees into the right headspace is critical, and usually, it won’t happen in a timeboxed, high pressure environment where introverted, but no less creative employees, are likely to get drowned out by vocal alpha-types.
People can also benefit from the tools and tactics available to come up with ideas in the first place. Spare a thought for the company whose idea challenge winner was “put wifi in the office”.
Furthermore, Steve Jobs didn’t come up with the idea for the graphical user interface - he observed it in action at Xerox’s Research Centre and ‘borrowed’ it for Apple. The more sources of ideas you have, the better off your organisation will be.
This is why it’s critical to have a number of different approaches to leveraging people for insights and ideas, not only from your own organisation, but also from your pool of customers, partners, suppliers and the general public.
So how can we help?
- Ideation workshops: leverage design thinking as well as other ideation tools
- Ideation platforms: provide your employees with a permanent space to share ideas
- Idea challenges: we can run campaigns around a particular theme to solicit, evaluate and select ideas for further exploration
- Startup ideation: give us a problem and we will leverage our extended network to find startups working on the solution or challenge them to come up with a solution
- Open innovation: we can run an open idea challenge which invites customers, partners, suppliers, startups and members of the general public to pitch ideas that your company might be interested in - this can be done online and in a face-to-face event
While it’s true that ideas are only as good as the execution and commercialised ideas are almost unrecognisable when compared to the initial idea, the greater and more reasonable your pool of ideas, the much higher your likelihood of getting to commercialisation and generating new lines of revenue for your organisation.
