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 […]

Idea assessment is the process of screening the ideas which have passed the refinement stage for further decision making in the innovation process. Magnusson et al. (2014), in their study they explained that being the first in the market really does matter for a company working on new product development; increasing the pace of a […]

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 […]

Idea Screening

Posted: May 05, 2019 | By: Sara Hägle - 1 comment

Idea screening is an act of intuition and analyzation, both system 1 and system 2. You use your experiences at the same time as you put up criteria to screen and assess ideas. Only using criteria can probably not be done exept your intuition. My experience is that one way of screening ideas is to […]

Modul 4

Posted: Apr 30, 2019 | By: valebala100 - 1 comment

When looking through the ideas to screen I realize I am very biased to what I believe would work for myself, thus not talking into consideration that many of the ideas target the general population and not solely academics or students.  I also noticed that even though I liked an idea and it could be […]

Module 3 Idea refinement

Posted: Apr 28, 2019 | By: Sara Hägle - 0 comments

The process of setting an idea can be fun,  easy and a creative experience. Refining the idea can be the opposite. That is my experience. Often when an idea is set you need a diversity of people to refine the idea. That can lead to slow down the process, because the image of the idea […]

The financial fund business often generates idea listening to their lead users. Lead users are professional investors that understand the need of diversifying the risks hence the expected return. The higher the expected return, the higher the risk. Financial institutions usually diversify their products (i.e. funds) according to risk (and as a consequence the expected […]

The view of information and pattern recognition.

Posted: Apr 11, 2019 | By: Cat Halthur - 0 comments

When looking at Idea/Concept refinement, there is an overall flow that could be described as this: information -> comprehension-> pattern recognition -> simplification -> evaluation (but a loop, as the evaluation lead to new information) This loop will occur both during the problem definition phase, as well as the solution definition phase, but seeing as […]

Idea Refinement

Posted: Apr 11, 2019 | By: Patrik Nilsson - 1 comment

Once an idea has been generated, the idea needs to be molded before it is assessed and implemented. Idea refinement can be carried out in many different ways. For this module, I found the article by Sukhov (2016) particularly beneficial. By breaking the idea into different elements, the innovators can refine each of the elements […]

Module 3 Idea Refinement

Posted: Apr 10, 2019 | By: Hayley McLaughlin - 1 comment

Idea refinement iterations will lead to an innovative and implemented solution if indeed the design problem is initially understood. This is reflected in the article by Dorst et al. (2001) who investigated the creativity & design quality for a new litter disposal service on new model Dutch trains. They state “the more time a subject […]
