The Idea Wall

It has been suggested that most people generate at least one idea each week that could be translated into a million dollar business solution. So what happens to all these ideas? Most of the time nothing happens. The reason for this is the lack of a set of practices to support, nourish, fuel and develop fledging ideas into sound propositions and real results.

The Idea Wall is a program for generating, developing and implementing ideas. The starting point for this process is a public display (an idea wall) where team members are encouraged to post their suggestions. To build upon this foundation, a set of processes are designed and implemented to:
Develop the idea.
Encourage private and public discussion.
Formulate more detailed plans.
Implement the idea as a pilot program.
Implement ideas as fully operational improvements to your organization.

This program is recommended to:
Create a public display of ideas and the support for ideas in your organization.
Provide encouragement and support to your team to develop their ideas.
Provide a support structure for ideas that don’t fit within typical boundaries or business units within your organization.
Develop a forum for discussing new ideas.
Strengthen connections between teams through common interest in ideas

For best results, this program is run in conjunction with the ‘Creative Cultures’ program.
