It is said that one of the biggest mistakes performed by organizations is coming up with great answers, but…to the wrong questions – the GAWQ trap. That is why we start off with Challenge Allocation, using Mind Mapping, Design Thinking and GEM© methods.

Evaluation of ideas
Innovation initiatives carry a high degree of uncertainty. To minimize risk, its best to screen ideas professionally using methods and tools that guide you in the process of taking educated choices regarding ideas to further invest in.
Step 1 is to set clear criteria for evaluating ideas. Different scenarios require different evaluations and criteria should be aligned with the type and scope of innovation ideas are collected for. Choosing the right criteria is highly important and ensures that only the fittest and most relevant ideas progress to the next stages, stages where resources of time and budget are allocated.
After setting criteria, we move to step 2 – the evaluation process itself using techniques such as pairwise, scorecards and opportunity management tables.
When using Idea Management software, evaluations are performed online and you identify high potential ideas at a glance.
