Your go-to solution for Idea Challenges

Focus innovation efforts on what matters and get measurable results quickly

Challenge your employees to innovate.

Idea challenges are a great way to make sure your innovation work is focused and strategically aligned. They are a great way to harness your entire organization's innovation potential on what matters and build a more innovative culture in the process.

Setting a challenge up must be quick but flexibility and ease of use are also key for successfully running them.
Capturing all the diverse insights your employees or customers hold is the key to finding the best opportunities.
Engaging the participants to collectively further develop the ideas into more refined concepts dramatically improves quality.
Choosing the right ideas to implement is the hardest part. The right tools help you make better decisions consistently.
