The Idea of Idea Management

Posted: Jun 04, 2019 | By: Peter Hellekant - 1 comment

So what is so damn important about being open to ideas, anyway?  I think most people are open to new ideas, as long as they don’t involve change or affecting daily life.  There is an old saying; “that’s the way we have always done it or we have never done it that way!”.  Although I […]

Experiences from screening ideas

Posted: Jun 01, 2019 | By: Josefin Taubert - 0 comments

In my organization we have gathered quite some experience in screening ideas. I am responsible for the process from idea submission until idea selection. Every time when we have a new ideation campaign it feels that we must force the sponsor of the campaign to think about the screening and the evaluation of the ideas. […]

Idea refinement

Posted: May 29, 2019 | By: Josefin Taubert - 1 comment

In our organization we have in the last two years been working with ideation campaigns with a very similar outline as the exercise we have done here during the course. First ideas are submitted, then there is some time for idea refinement, commenting and voting within the campaign and finally there is an evaluation of […]

Modul 4

When given the task to screen ideas on how to deal with “fake news” I found a quite surprising pattern. Even though I gave a high rating on the majority of ideas with regards to the criteria’s; How good do you think the idea is, originality and user value – most of them received a […]

Screening and assessing ideas

Posted: May 09, 2019 | By: Cat Halthur - 0 comments

In my experience, assessment of potential ideas within my organisation(s) has been left to a board of directors, or people with a similar, but less formal, role within the department. Commonly, these have been people regarded as experts within a specific field of knowledge, and they have been assumed to make “a rational decision to […]

Module 4 Idea Assessment

Posted: May 09, 2019 | By: Hayley McLaughlin - 0 comments

As a whole, our idea assessment procedures are not necessarily efficient but I would still argue that they are effective in that for the sector I belong to, we still manage to come with new ideas to market that give us a competitive differentiation. Years ago when I first joined our organization, and with no […]

Idea Assessment

Posted: May 09, 2019 | By: Patrik Nilsson - 0 comments

When an idea has been shaped and molded, the idea needs to be screened before it is implemented. This screening, or idea assessment, can be carried out in many ways. In some industries, these assessments are made through rigorous processes and evaluation criteria. Such evaluation processes may include criteria such as return on investment, profitability, […]

In reading about the quick and slow ways of assessing ideas, I realize how much I depend on my “gut feeling”. It was quite unsettling. When I went through and assessed the ideas in the idea generator, I certainly had my favorites and even some gag reflex when reading others. I remembered reading Chesbrough and […]

Module 4 – Screen ideas

Posted: May 08, 2019 | By: Tove Löfgren - 0 comments

Valet av metod för urval behöver utgå från vad är man ute efter, utveckling av befintligt eller något radikalt nytt? Min erfarenhet är att när man pratar om idéutveckling i praktiken då är det framförallt de radikala idéer man är ute efter. De inkrementella idéerna utvecklas mer löpande i verksamheten ofta utan en omfattande eller […]

Previous experience with idea assessment

Posted: May 08, 2019 | By: Sara W - 0 comments

This module and it’s literature made me reflect on how idea assessment is commonly approached in my experience. It feels like a wonderful opportunity to think about – and maybe even assess – these processes that rarely are discussed in this in depth manner. In my (previous) experience many ideas in the day to day […]

Assessing ideas

Posted: May 06, 2019 | By: Inesa Stockunaite - 1 comment

I found the assignment of assessing the ideas quite interesting and easy as the criteria were already provided. Nevertheless, we had all criteria available, I had to use my intuitive and critical thinking to be able to give a grade on each of them. This to be said, I think intuition and rational decision making […]
