Innovation is the introduction of significant, positive change. Large-scale, small-scale – it can impact products or offerings, processes, it can introduce new markets, and much more. And with open innovation, the solution or change can come from anywhere, eliminating the boundaries between industries, departments, or disciplines.
However, innovation actually begins long before the point of inspiration in sophisticated groups of champions and experts who are laying the groundwork and building a culture that will sustain these changes. These teams originate both officially and organically and the most successful ones have laid the groundwork for innovation long before the first idea is suggested.
To that end, IdeaScale has assembled a workshop list of questions that will help streamline the innovation process no matter what your goals may be. Each section is followed by a set of workshop questions thatwill help you plan your innovation program.
