Elevate idea and innovation processes in corporates
A modern innovation management process forms the basis for all your innovation activities.
From the first step of defining and mapping (strategic) search fields, the systematic integration of trends, to technology assessments and the documentation of relevant user needs.
Different activating formats such as idea campaigns, competitions or testing activities can be used and mapped within or across various organizational units. A wide range of flexible evaluation tools helps you to allocate your budget to the right ideas. Dashboards help innovation managers to actively manage their innovation process and to proactively set accents throughout the organization.
Innovation management software tailored to the process enables the innovation process to be digital, remote, transparent and measurable. This approach requires structured planning and the commitment of all relevant stakeholders throughout the organization. We accompany our customers on their Innovation Journey with the right software, the appropriate methods and coaching of the users – from the first search field to the successful implementation of an innovation management process.

Every software needs humans
We design programs with proofed record services, which support your software implementation and later campaigns.
1. Process & software consulting
An analysis of the current situation of the innovation process in the company provides an initial overview and lays the foundation for the configuration of software. An evaluation of current software tools is also conducted.
The process is designed with the help of an innovation blueprint. In this phase we support you in choosing the right innovation management software.
We implement new & adapted innovation processes including configuration and implementation of the innovation management software. We use “best practice” innovation processes and adapt them to the need of the company.
2. Campagin design
In a joint workshop with our clients, the strategic fields of innovation are developed, the customer-specific topics are identified and prioritized, and a topic is selected for the first pilot campaign.
We support our clients in order to integrate important actors (C-Level) into the process. We introduce key stakeholders to the platform and the new processes to ensure that they recognize their important role as moderator & motivator in the process.
An incentive strategy tailored to the topic and objective is developed and relevant communities are activated.
3. Campagin enrollment
During the live phase of a campaign, HYVE community experts moderate the activities on the platform.
We support community management workshops with our clients in order to train all stakeholders in handling the platform and the processes.
Communication & activation
We create communication campaigns for our clients that are tailored to their channels. In addition, we design all relevant platform and communication products such as texts, mailings, videos, initial ideas, and inspiration for the platform. Coherent communication ensures a high recognition value for your campaign and thus more interaction among your employees.
Idea shortlisting & Jury Meeting
We moderate the idea assessment to identify the best ideas and translate them into concrete concepts. The ideas pre-selected by the expert assessment and the HYVE idea evaluation process are presented to the jury, the ideas are discussed and their potential for further development is assessed. HYVE summarizes all results in a comprehensive report for you.
So that the ideas generated within an innovation management software also make the step into the project phase, we accompany various events and workshop formats. The best ideas are further developed in labs, sprints or entire intrapreneurship programs. We always follow a Lean Startup Approach (Build, Measure, Learn).
Hackathons & Jams
Planning and implementation of 2-3 day innovation formats during and after a campaign
Innovation Labs & Intrapreneurship Prorgams
Embedding an innovation campaign in more extensive innovation formats such as innovation labs or intrapreneurship programs
Product Developement Sprints
Further support or implementation of product development projects (digital solutions and / or physical products)
Ideas and innovation management has a long tradition at HYVE. In 2005 HYVE released its own developed software: HYVE IdeaNet, a collaboration platform for various innovation drivers. Likewise, the HYVE Crowd is one of HYVE’s success stories. With over 98,000 members, the crowdsourcing platform is used by companies in various phases of the innovation process, e.g. to find new ideas for application areas of their technologies.
For over 16 years we have been working with and on innovation and idea management platforms. With our many years of experience we adapt the platform specifications exactly to the needs of our clients and support them with our know-how.
