Top 5 Ideation Objectives for Innovation [Infographic]


Both a Nobel Prize winner in Chemistry and Nobel Peace Prize recipient, Linus Pauling believed,

“The best way to get a good idea is to have a lot of ideas…get lots of ideas and throw the bad ones away.”

Build your Innovation Portfolio on the best ideas captured through Ideation.

For innovative and creative organizations, the challenge is not a lack of good ideas, but no effective system in place to review, score, catalog and process these ideas through the pipeline. To focus on the best and “throw the bad ones away” a strategic, competent company needs an Innovation Resource Management tool.
