Open up the idea management system to your customers. Use them as a front-line resource for your market’s current needs.

5. Prioritize Ideas

What are you looking to improve? Choose which ideas to implement based on necessity, not the most votes or rank.

If you find employee engagement lagging or idea submission declining, use this guide to refresh your system. Implementing these steps ensures your idea management framework will remain in peak condition for years to come.
