Multiple Admins

Key Take-Away: Scale your idea collection faster and more efficient by finding team leaders.

Why run the entire show yourself? Put your faith in the people around you by giving admin rights to others, allowing them to create and manage their own teams and missions.

Having more admins in your Space, allows you to:

  • Increase the number of relevant missions created
  • Boost the amount of total ideas collected
  • Increase the speed at which ideas are moved forward

GIve team leaders the opportunity to bring aboard their own team, and allow them to launch and coordinate missions that solve their own challenges. Ideanote is a powerful tool, and sharing its benefits is the fastest way to better results.

Teams

Key Take-Away: Create a new culture of sharing by empowering teams to coordinate their own missions.

What’s the most powerful tool we’ve ever built? Teams! And in the following we’ll take a closer look at how they work.

In short, teams allow you to:

  • Group people any way you want
  • Allow people to easily create or discover relevant missions
  • Manage access to missions more efficiently
  • Track activity across all the teams you create

But how does that translate into better results, you ask?

Well, by creating teams you give each team member a strong sense of ownership, which will help develop and move ideas forward even faster.

This is because teams allow people to rally around shared projects and goals in a more manageable way, and in turn, generate not just more ideas, but also far more qualified ones.

Phases 2.0

Key Take-Away: Be sure you’re using phases to their full potential by moving ideas to the right phase at the right time.

We already covered how phases work in Part 1, but this section is not about the how, but about the why.

You should always aim to use all five phases when you collect ideas. This is because phases provide the bedrock for ideas to blossom, and when ready, to be acted on.

Maybe you’re already working with ideas in a way that makes using phases easy, but if not, you should take advantage of the value each phase has to offer:

  • Create relevant missions that inspire your people
  • Grow ideas into their best version of themselves
  • Rate ideas to be sure you’re finding the very best
  • Act on top ideas for maximum value
  • Done with an idea? Track and evaluate its impact

Don’t let ideas get stuck. If every idea you collect completes its journey from Create to Done, you know that they’ve each had the opportunity to become the next big thing to help transform your business for the better.

This applies to all ideas, including the ones that provide smaller, incremental benefits. No matter your ambition, all ideas deserve their chance in the spotlight. and with these powerful tools in your arsenal, you are well on your way to slay that innovation!

And that, my friend, is that.
