Open Innovation with external specialists
Participation in Hackathon to introduce innovations in the company is often complicated, whether it takes place in person or remotely using only external collaborators or specialists, and is often not very effective.
Employees feel uninvolved, are distracted by urgent business urgencies, and they don’t actively participate in meetings that they consider unproductive.
Often, they are afraid to express their ideas in front of their superiors, so there is a lack of the contribution of some voices that instead could make the difference in this context.
It is proven, however, that the best and most innovative ideas arise from spontaneous and instantaneous ideas and from “daring” choices that in most cases are not interesting and are often the subject of ridicule, but if you are left free to express yourself, they lead to important processes of growth and improvement. The mechanism behind The Best Idea is that those who participate can publish ideas initially anonymously, to allow everyone to express themselves freely and others to evaluate them without prejudice.
The Best Idea is the platform that, used for Hackathons or Brainstorming or Design Thinking or Design Sprint sessions, allows a real and tangible improvement in the management of business processes.
HOW THE BEST IDEA WORKS
MORE EASY PARTICIPATION AND MANAGEMENT
As Project Manager, with the role of facilitator, you can decide the goal and publish an ordered list of the necessary activities, which can be Challenges, Projects or Polls. Editable Templates are available, such as “Research and development” of a new product, which you can modify at will, or you can create your own and save them just for yourself. Get involved colleagues with their smartphone or other device, with the possibility of attaching files and videos, instead of using the sticky notes of the traditional system, greatly speeding up the voting and choice operations.
MORE INTERACTION FORMULAS
Within the Multi-Phase, you can choose between Challenges, Polls, Flash or Projects. In response to the Challenges, you can choose to ask to publish the ideas in a quick and concise form (Flash), or more articulated and complex (Project), also attaching any documentation, or even with a structured solution (Business Plan), for a complete analysis.
HONORS AND AWARDS
The best in the ranking of Projects, Flash, Business Plans and Voters will be able to reveal their name, obtaining reputation advantages or may eventually be rewarded by the company.
ACCESSIBLE FROM ANY DEVICE AT ANY TIME
Involve collaborators and external specialists wherever they are, in meetings or in smart working! Decide for each activity whether a quick response is needed or allow them time to choose when to do it.
