Idea and Innovation Management Platform

Why is innovation almost always on the strategic agenda of organizations? Because time and time again innovative organizations grow faster, perform better and create more value for their stakeholders.

According to multiple landmark studies, innovation comes down to idea generation, organizational sponsorship and idea implementation – all of which require employee engagement.

Leading organizations often refer to a culture of innovation as being at the core of bringing products to market faster, outperforming their peers and operating at a high level. At the heart of this culture is the notion of open innovation: transparency and collaboration between peers, departments, suppliers and customers to find and follow the best ideas, no matter where they come from.
