An ideation challenge is a real 2.0 idea box, allowing employees to share their ideas on a web platform with the aim of addressing one or more issues identified within their company.
At the beginning of 2021, Indosuez group launched its first ideation challenge on a dedicated online platform developed by the Innovation Lab teams. All Indosuez and Azqore staff members were invited to submit their ideas for boosting client and/or employee experience, and to like and comment on their colleagues' ideas.
The ideation challenge is a great tool for innovation that enables employees to actively take part in Indosuez’s transformation by bringing their ideas to fruition. These kinds of initiatives federate teams and strengthen cooperation, with people from different business lines and sometimes located in different countries working hand in hand to create and then implement their project.
For 3 months, the ideas proposed were put to a series of votes in order to select the 5 ideas – considered most relevant in terms of feasibility, innovation, scalability* and commercial impact – which will be developed at the end of this year.
* In hardware and software computing and telecommunications, scalability refers to the ability of a product to adapt to an increased demand or scope, particularly its ability to maintain its functionality and performance during periods of high demand.
