Ideas can happen anytime and anywhere, and the best ideas are usually built through interactions from lots of people with different points of view. The key is bringing everyone together in a structured way.
The BBC recently found themselves needing to address this challenge. They had a large employee base filled with potential ideas for new television programming, but no way to take advantage of this potential. To fill the void, the BBC worked with Wazoku to launch a version of Idea Spotlight, iCreate, an idea management solution that taps into the hidden talents of their existing workforce.
iCreate is already yielding results and demonstrating how ideas are built through interactions from the crowd. The first iCreate commission is the result of the combined efforts of individuals from different departments and locations, who normally would not have met or collaborated to create a new programme.
Deploying Idea Spotlight within tibbr, enterprise social networking, is an ideal way to take advantage of the structured method for gathering, analysing, and selecting the best ideas for your business challenges. Because tibbr already provides the means to connect functionally and geographically diverse employees, and Idea Spotlight utilises many of the same social technology available in tibbr – voting, commenting, and sharing – while also providing additional ways to support the review of ideas by appropriate decision makers.
In an upcoming webinar, I will demonstrate how Wazoku’s Idea Spotlight and tibbr work together to generate innovative ideas to beat business challenges. The topics covered include:
- What is Idea Management?
- Why is an Idea Management solution important for your business?
- How do Idea Spotlight and tibbr work together?
