Idea Management

The involvement of stakeholders in steering innovation efforts is taking a step forward with web 2.0 tools. Compared to more traditional ways of stakeholder involvement, social web platforms introduce real time feedback into the process of stakeholder involvement, which allows for a much more interactive and collaborative involvement fundamentally changing the way expert opinions are collected.

The possibility of extensive online collaboration offers stakeholders a novel more powerful instrument to co-create and contribute directly to decision-making, but it also lays challenges on the process management to stay focused on the initial objectives to inform the decision-making.

Our solutions help you get the best out of crowdsourcing; online tools like social networking and advanced decision support tools. We provide you with an efficient process for engaging your stakeholders in a systematic and evidence-based generation, elaboration and assessment of  ideas and their subsequent analysis with multiple dimensions that lead to well informed and bold decisions.
