Sample of Presentations (so far)

Building a Crowdsourcing Program: A Cyclical Growth Story
An overview of the evolution of CDER's crowdsourcing program from market research to a systematic program that embraces continual improvement.

Crowdsourcing for Good
Learn how nonprofits and public sector organizations make a difference with the help of their crowd, learn from leaders at the United Way, Doctors Without Borders, and others.

From Ideation to Implementation: Managing an Innovation Pipeline as a Team of One
Keeping an innovation pipeline full of ideas, even really good ideas, isn’t as much of a challenge as what to do with those ideas once you have them. When ideas are plentiful and resources to develop those ideas are scarce, you have to get creative in your approach to set-up yourself/team/organization for success.

If You Build It, They Will Come: Activating the Employee Voice
How do you create a place where active and meaningful collaborations happen? This year New York University Administrative Management Council brought the employee voice into the 21st Century by introducing OpenAMC powered by IdeaScale. From informing meeting agendas to initiating policy changes, OpenAMC encourages a more inclusive discussion and provides the framework for 2,700 administrative employees to share their voice.

Outcome Driven Innovation in the Social Sector

Nonprofits are becoming increasingly sophisticated in data driven decision-making and service planning. How can the social sector adopt outcome-driven or “needs first” innovation into their strategy? Follow a simple case study of how a public library is using IdeaScale to leverage front-line staff experience to meet community needs with measurable outcomes in their strategic plan.

If Two heads Are Better Than One…….Imagine What 15,000 Can Do!

How do you harness the capability, ideas and information within your organisation to support better business decisions and to engender trust? This is a story of the Queensland Police Service’s idea management platform, iCOP – (Ideas Connecting Our People) which has engaged 6000+ members to ask questions, share knowledge and submit ideas with the focus of making policing services simpler, better and safer. It will explore the concept of attention as an asset and through ‘harnessing the energy’ within the organisation you can support engagement and deliver the right outcomes.

New Products, Better Processes
Covia discusses how their team launched IdeaScale to achieve effective crowdsourcing and how they have integrated IdeaScale into their stage Gate product development process.
