Strategy Builder



The InnovateXL Platform also contains a unique strategy builder system.  As employees work through the Digital Learning Modules the system requests input on certain topics such as Innovation Vision, Strategy, Objectives etc. These suggestions are collated by the Strategy Builder across key members of the innovation team and following an online collaborative process culminate in a organisational wide Strategic Innovation Plan

Ideation


InnovateXL’s ideation module uses crowd sourcing techniques to solicit ideas from an on-line community in order to help execute your Strategic Innovation Themes.

The community can be employees (internal) or individuals or organisations outside of your own (external). The system works on the basis of posing a “challenge” to the online community and then inviting participants to solve the challenge in the form of new ideas. Participants can submit their own idea, comment on the ideas of others, expand and develop the ideas of others and vote for the best ones. An individual campaign will normally be left “open” for several weeks in order to gain the maximum participation. As the campaign progress the online voting ensures the best ideas are ranked at the top and then go on for evaluation by a judging panel.

The ideation system features a comprehensive dashboard allowing you to track progress on campaigns, including employee participation, ideas submitted, comments generated, like/dislikes etc.

An Innovation Leader board highlights top innovators and is designed to encourage maximum employee engagement.

An Open Innovation Portal is the means of access for external parties. Designed to encourage collaboration, the Portal also provides the necessary guidance on Intellectual Property for externally generated ideas.
