In yesterday’s CSC TechTalk Soundbites we’ve discussed setting up a speed ideation event. Here some initial thoughts on getting this started – please comment with your suggestions.
I still debate with myself (and probably have to take this also with colleagues and seniors) if the collection of issues & ideas to solve those should be done internally or publicly – at the moment I lean towards full external exposure, but this would require everybody to stick to a set of rules…let me have your thoughts on this.
b) Entering an idea
– Every idea should solve an issue – technical, business, social or whatever you deem appropriate
– Issue and idea how to solve will be explained by person or group entering the idea
– To be included in the documentation:
— Negative impact of issues
— Positive impact of suggested solution
— Probability of suggested solution solving the issue
— Efforts to shape, implement & manage solution
c) Timeline – all in one week
To keep this at the intended speed, there will be a window of 2 days to enter ideas (Monday & Tuesday), 2 days (Wednesday & Thursday) where all ideas are frozen but made available for public review, one or two hours on Friday where we will use #CrowdChat to defend and vote
d) What will happen afterwards?
This is the main topic we need to solve – although there’s already a great point in raising & justifying ideas, it would of course be way better if the chosen ones would be implemented; I’ll take this to the appropriate guys to check how we can inject into e.g. IRB or similar.
Again – please let me have your thoughts on this – and also (this is for @CSC colleagues) please let me know if you’d like to join in – there are quite a couple of tasks to be done to make this happen.
Update 2014-07-13: I activated portfolio on this site and created a new project. All future posts related to this project will be here (see also menu above)
