Elements of several ideas can lead to one great idea• Make it clear the company is looking for NEW ideas, not merely incremental solutions• Past? What Past?• Reward great ideas 26
    • Results• No cookie cutter ideas• Approaches that better capture the company’s voice and culture• Quicker change because you own all the processes• Boosted participation because change leaders are advocates for their ideas• More authentic responses to social conversation• BOOSTED REPUTATION, CUSTOMER ENGAGEMENT, CONSUMER CONFIDENCE/SATISFACTION, SHARE OF VOICE 27
