Curriculum Vitae

The ideation process

The participants are divided in teams of two people. Each team produces ideas with the help of the Computer Aided Creativity software towards reaching the goal. Then each team evaluates and refines the ideas of one peer team each. All ideas become evaluated and refined by a peer team. All ideas with evaluations are printed out and distributed to all participants for Idea Shopping. Each participant can select and combine favourites for the next morning.

Next morning the pairs are formed in a new order. Each pair compares their shopping lists and refines new ideas, which they present to others on a matrix. The ideas are selected by the peer teams and they are re-arranged on the matrix. The result is typically 20-30 feasible ideas, out of which typically 3-5 are selected for immediate implementation. For these the actions, responsible persons and schedules are agreed and decided. Also all original 100-300 ideas with evaluations remain documented in electronic format for further use.

Innovation Management System project for your company

In every day development work “Innovation Management System” sounds very futuristic and remote, but so sounded the now standard accounting, production planning, product design and customer relationship management systems before. It is astonishing how well managed the euros, the product and production structures and the customers are in the computer systems, but how badly managed the most important asset for the future of the company: the ideas of the customers, partners, own employees and competitors are. Not even to speak about the systematic innovation process. In the future Innovation Management Systems will be as standard as financial management system now. A practically working Innovation Management System is a big strategic development leap, but also a challenging change of way of operation. CAC-Research makes company specific pre-studies for decision making about Innovation Management Systems and also acts as a consultant in the implementation project, if needed.
