Trend Scouting

Research trends through the integration with TRENDONE’s Trendexplorer, a trend database fed by a global network of trend scouts. You can link trends to your strategic innovation areas and idea campaigns, to inspire your crowd or highlight recent developments in the industry to other participants. Trends also incentivize your users to visit the platform more often as they are exciting news!

Idea Generation

Gain top management support by structuring your innovation initiative along strategic innovation areas, aligned with the business goals of your company. You can quickly set up idea campaigns for targeted ideation with our campaign wizard, either from scratch or based on past campaign templates. Your idea authors are guided by contextual help to ensure a high quality of submissions. You can also launch online brainwriting sessions, to support distributed teams and rapidly generate idea fragments, which can then be combined and matured towards the solution you look for.

Collaboration

Collaboration is a key element of your sustainable innovation program. HYPE Enterprise requires a minimum number of comments, votes, and visits for new idea submissions. While ideators have to collaborate to push each other’s ideas over this threshold, it also helps to enrich ideas and reduce the review team’s workload. When commenting, your users can assume and mark their perspective on the idea, similar to de Bono’s Six Thinking Hats (c). You can also request certain perspectives for a more balanced idea review.

Evaluation

Choose from a range of evaluation methods to match your individual scenario. With HYPE’s idea boards, you can easily triage ideas to filter out those, which do not fit your present demand. Use our evaluation wizard to quickly set up detailed scorecard evaluations sessions. You can define your team of subject matter experts and criteria tailored to the ideas to be reviewed. Pairwise evaluation helps your review team to intuitively generate ranked lists of good ideas, based on a head-to-head comparison. You can assign weightings to your criteria and easily spot the best idea in the result table. 

Implementation

Take your best ideas into the concept phase, where you subject them to close scrutiny, assign resources and budget, and develop a business case, guided by HYPE Enterprise. Track the decisions made by your innovation board as you move your concepts to the innovation project phase, where you define milestones and iteratively develop the idea further. Set up your success KPIs with our KPI wizard to always stay on top of your innovation pipeline, ready to report on the latest developments with a single click.
