Trusted by global innovation leaders
Ideation is a systematic practice that helps organizations generate and refine concepts and ideas to solve pressing challenges. Through a multi-stage process consisting of phases and gates, ideas are gathered, aggregated, analyzed, developed, and evaluated.
The best ideas are then resourced, prioritized, and implemented to produce new products, services, and business models. Ideation leverages the intelligence of the hive by involving employees, test users, clients, experts, suppliers, or external crowds.
