About the 2020 Innovation Management Awards

IdeaScale selected innovation management awards in three categories. These were: best engagement, process, and implementation. The submission deadline was April 10, 2020, and winners were announced the following month.

Best engagement was awarded to the company that showed the highest level of engagement in the most creative ways. Best innovation process was awarded to the community who demonstrated the most effective processes for idea evaluation.

Best innovation went to the community who made the most impactful idea a reality. This includes new products, processes, shifts in thinking, or market focus.

The winners in each category got a %5 discount on their 2020 subscription to the IdeaScale platform. They also received an Apple Watch, a promotional PR packet, and a VIP pass to the 2020 Open Nation Conference.
