1. Introduction: What is Accept Mission (+ corporate video)
Accept Mission is a powerful Innovation & idea management software tool designed to generate value for organisations, innovation teams and innovation managers who need tools to structure their idea management process and maximize their innovation process (value creation).
The platform has two environments:
Manager: An administrator view for managers (admins) to create missions, invite users and report on mission progress and created innovation value
Users: A public view for agents (users) to join and participate in missions
Note: only users who have admin rights (manager or company captain) can switch between manager and user.
In this corporate video we show our Product “Accept Mission” and what it can do for your business. Share this video with your management, investors, partners or users.
2. Collect, Select & Execute the best ideas
Idea Box (collect):
Create "private" or "open" idea boxes to collect lots of ideas from different sources (internal, external) over a long period of time. Use idea boxes for any topic such as new products, new services, improve strategy, solve challenges or think about solutions. Let user upvote ideas ideas by liking and commenting on idea. As Admin you can review ideas and add scores (impact, investment, strategic fit) to the collected ideas and manage the status (progress) of ideas in the kanban overview.
Create brainstorm campaigns (former ideation) to collect many ideas and fill your idea pipeline in a short period of time. Automate your email notifications and brainstorm rounds with timers. Do peer review after each brainstorm round or Expert reviews when mission is complete. Create leaderboards with best ideas & best agents. Ideal for big idea challenges with medium to large groups. Once the campaign is finished you can review & score ideas and copy ideas to an idea box of choice for further processing by adding more relevant information (impact, investment, strategic fit).
Create a board to quickly share & collaborate on ideas in real time. It is an easy to use collaboration tool (no setup) which comes in very useful to brainstorm during video meetings or with small groups. Once the white board session is finished you can copy ideas to an idea box of choice for further processing and adding more relevant relevant information (impact, investment, strategic fit).
Use selection to validate a subset of ideas with a stakeholder group based on custom criterias and create a short list to select the best ideas.
Create a project portfolio to manage your innovation projects and report real business value.
