Why idea management?

Idea management refers to the structured process of generating, evaluating, and implementing ideas that contribute to an organization’s innovation strategy and growth. It systematically transforms a multitude of ideas into impactful solutions by leveraging collective intelligence from employees, customers, and partners.

Idea management can occur through a centralized or decentralized process. Centralized idea management allows an entire organization to engage in the process, whereas decentralized idea management allows different teams or business units to manage their own ideas.
