Putting the theory of co-creation & collaborative innovation to practice - we are proud to announce the launch of www.ideaken.com, which we call as a beginning of shifting 'the power of social media from instant gratification to sustainable value creation'.
Every enterprise has innovation as one of the top priorities; however 9 out of 10 enterprises face challenges in innovation management - be it ability to co-create with customers, utilizing employee talent or tapping into the global pool of talent, and thus not able to achieve the innovation objective. To address this challenge, enterprises are increasingly embracing open innovation, co-creation and collaborative innovation.
Collaborative innovation takes place when one starts to leverage unknown or unnamed sources of ideas, solutions & knowledge along with the known and named sources. The basic intention is to increase the chances of problem-to-solution match by increasing the solver base dramatically. Enterprises need to source the diversity of talent, tap into the wisdom of crowds and reach out to the underutilised talent sources.
