Online question database

The database contains a total of more than 150 questions that can be filtered according to the corporate sector (Automotive, HR, Education / Training, Other) and filling manager position (senior / middle manager). When creating a questionnaire, the person in charge selects questions from the database that are relevant to the company, then sends the generated link to those who he/she wants to complete it. The staff members will enter the questionnaire by clicking on the link, and after filling it out, the creator can see automatically generated statistics from the responses. Filling and evaluation are done anonymously. The survey helps to map the current status and needs of the company's innovation management system.

 

Brainstorming platform

At the final stage of the project, we developed an online social platform supporting innovative ideas. The base of this tool is the use of the brainstorming technique, in which various ideas of solution can be generated to solve a certain issue. The ideas can range  from less realistic visions to more useful suggestions that might also be implemented. These ideas then can be unfolded, and then useful suggestions selected and can be developed further.

Brainstorming events cannot be held on a daily basis, but it is a creative tool to improve the company’s knowledge portfolio. The employees of different companies and different departments within the company can have different visions, therefore different ideas and suggestions will be generated to solve an actual (or hypothetic) problem.
