Modul 4 I min organisation har vi ett ganska tätt samarbete säljorganisation-kvalitet-teknisk kundservice-produktutveckling-produktion. Vi har våra regelbundna brainstorm (ca 1 gång/år, samt uppföljningar), och vi har våra diskussioner gällande kundproblem, reklamationer, kundönskemål och så vidare. Vår idéscreening är inte uttalat intuitiv eller rationell. Alla representanter säger sin mening och sedan brukar konsensus uppnås (om inte […]
Modul 3 Något som inspirerade mig i litteraturen var förtydligandet att Problem Space och Solution Space utvecklas tillsammans och bildar ett passande Problem-Lösning-par. Jag skulle tro att vi har allt mer ”skygglappar” och ”barriärer” mellan olika gebit idag. Det finns säkert redan tekniska lösningar på problem som vi har, bara det att de som sitter […]
Module 2 a) “Generate ideas on how to improve peoples´ ability to think critically towards all information they instantly are exposed to (to know what information are fake and what are not)” Det är svårt att skydda information från kontaminering av osanningar, speciellt i snabba flöden där man ofta inte hinner reflektera över sanningshalten i […]
Min organisation är en tillverkande industri. Det finns flera system för idea management beroende på vad det handlar om. Det finns en typ av processer som bearbetar idéer för intern processförbättring. Detta sker både top-down och bottom-up. Top-down sker via fabriksledning och utgår från effektivitetsmål som finns på verksamheten (t ex tidsförluster, utskott osv). Fabriksledningen […]
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 […]
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. […]
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 […]

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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
