idea management softwareI get asked this question on a weekly basis; I also get told that idea management is an invaluable tool. It’s interesting to see other people’s perspectives on idea management, and why it’s so important.

Simply put idea management software is just a tool, anyone can have tools, but without the correct management the tools are useless.

We provide these tools, but what makes us different from our competition? Not a lot really, other than the fact we offer a different user experience. Our product is great, and so are our competitors. But we’re not here to talk about why you should choose us; rather that Idea management is vital to the success of any ideation process.

Idea Management Buy-In
Getting buy-in is key, whether it’s from your employees, customers or staff. But here’s the tricky part; how do we achieve buy in?

Frankly, this is not something I am going to answer for you, just because it requires so many different angles. What I can say is consultation is key; ask yourself why you want to manage ideas and who is going to submit them.

There are many methods for managing ideas internally and externally, but it all depends on your organisation, and the demographics of the user. We will look into demographics and the ethos of your organisation late, for now we will look why we need it.

Why Idea Management is important
How do you capture insights about your organisation?
How do you learn what your customers really want?
How do you identify quick wins that can vastly improve your organisation?
How do you communicate with your employees and customers?

Idea management is vital because its a lean, affordable and proven technique to create an inclusive culture, that is prosperous and is ready to grow. Without Idea Management, you are missing out on vital insights about your organisation.

  7. Idea management software is almost like having a second brain working over time to help keep your ideas straight and to also develop them. We can do this ourselves of course, but when you have access to a powerful software program that can assist the natural process, why not take advantage of it and get ahead of your competition?
