Idea, Ideation, Innompic Blitz Contests, Vadim Kotelnikov, Svetlana Vasyanina



Draft an inspiring vision of how great the teamwork outcomes can be and ask the team members to contribute their ideas and help you shape a shared vision.  >>>


Nourish love for the consumers of the teamwork outcomes and a shared burning desire to create great things for them.


Establish a creative dissatisfaction attitude and nourish love for change, risk taking and experimentation with new ideas.


Nourish passion for cross-pollinating ideas, brainstorming, synergizing diverse ideas and generating breakthroughs that stimulate growth.  >>>


Throw a challenge and ask the team to come up with creative solutions. Provide guiding principles. Divide the ideation process into two phases – independent ideation (‘Garden’ phase) and integration of individual ideas (‘Kitchen’ phase).


Encourage the team members to challenge assumptions, break rules, think differently, inventively, laterally, and outside the box.


Establish a continuous improvement mindset, encourage all team members to exchange proactively their views on opportunities to do something better.


When necessary, impose constraints on time and resources to make the team members leave their intellectual comfort zones and ‘create under the gun’.


Play entrepreneurial simulation games, such as Innovation Brainball (Innoball), with the most promising ideas in order to spark the next phase of creativity.


Reward idea generation – for both the effort made and the value created.
