This requires a process that is both refined and fit for purpose for the organisation. There is no ‘one size fits all’ approach and the idea pipeline must be configured appropriately.

Harnessing the Wisdom of Crowds
Bringing people together to work on a challenge can be expensive and inconvenient, particularly if they are geographically and functionally diverse, but it is this very diversity and collaboration that can deliver valuable insights. Online idea campaigns allow diverse groups to work together, in their own time, on ideas and solutions. Here at Richmond innovation we are experts at managing and delivering online idea campaigns. We also provide support during the review and decision making process, allowing you to prioritise the highest potential ideas for delivery.
Success principles of on-line idea campaigns
Delivering a successful on-line idea campaign requires planning and management. The challenge needs to be clearly stated, numbers of participants should be wide enough to ensure good collaboration and they should be fully ‘bought in’ and committed. Senior management sponsorship will also help with campaign success but one of the most important aspects is communication. Participants need to know that their ideas and collaboration are valued, regardless of whether the idea is developed further. Campaign marketing and timing are also important to deliver a good flow of ideas before participants ‘run out of steam’.
