An Idea Contest to Find the Best Solutions for Your Challenges
An Idea Contest, also referred to as an Innovation Event, is a short duration innovation event (3 to 15 days) that helps your organization communicate your business objectives, find solutions to complex business challenges, and identify business transformation opportunities. During this type of event, everyone works collaboratively together to find the best solutions to your business challenges — breaking down the typical business silos and innovation divides. You will start by sharing with your participants your top challenges defined by your leadership team, then ask your participants to collaborate in groups to find the best solutions over a set and limited time. This type of event can be an effective way to boost your innovation initiatives in any area.
Before starting the Idea Contest, several discussion forums will be determined based on the pre-determined key topics. Your challenges will typically be defined by how your organization proactively leverages them and ensure they remain relevant in significant market disruptions and for your customers. Another critical component to consider when setting up your challenges is overseeing the relevancy in the market dynamics such as substantial advances and changes in the digital and social world, including the big data and leveraging mobile to its best. The challenges should also be aligned with your organization’s fundamental principles and realities, such as staying on top of customer experience (CX) and staying genuine to your company values.
