Innovation projects

Manage the progress of Innovation Projects and deliver insights to measure the innovation success rate. Get in control of the Innovation Projects and the innovation roadmap with Accept Mission Projects.


When creating an innovation project, keeping track and monitoring its progress is very important to deliver the innovation successfully.  Every innovation project needs to meet certain criteria to successfully convert to the next stage (I.e problem finding, solution finding, experiment, business case, development, and delivery).  With Accept Mission, you are in control of defining these criteria in the project settings wizard.

Project funnels

Just like you can create and manage idea funels you can also create and manage project funnels. With a funnel you can set apart projects for teams/departments/countries or just because a different team is responsible for the set of projects.

List view

A simple list view of all the projects linked to a company. Every column is sortable. The latest report column is based on the date of the latest modification (edit) made to a project.

Kanban (default view)

The Kanban board is the default dashboard view for projects. This dashboard shows all project cards and is convenient if you want to see the progress of all projects. Each project card presents the following information: the progress bar (%), project manager and deadline. (You can easily edit these values in the project details form by clicking on a project card.)

To update project progression, each project card can be manually converted to the next stage with the drag & drop functionality. In every stage all financial details are combined to show the profit per stage at the bottom of every stage column. The profit is based on the Estimated revenue minus investments in the project settings - Score tab.

Gantt chart view

A Gantt chart is excellent for gathering a complete overview of all projects dedicated to different departments (departments are linked to a project in the project settings page). When adding a new project, the project is automatically plotted on the Gantt chart underneath the department that is dedicated to the project. Every bar displayed in the Gantt chart represents a project. When hovering over a project with the cursor, additional information is displayed, such as the project title, start date and end date.
The user can manually determine the 'time window' that's being displayed in the Gantt chart by manually filling in the FROM and TO fields with the desired dates, or by interacting with the slider at the bottom of the chart.

Start an Innovation Project

As a Admin you can start an innovation project based on one of the Innovation ideas from the Inbox-, Selection-, or Ideation Missions or just start a completely new project from scratch. With Projects the Admin can monitor the project status, stage, status updates, upcoming deadlines, strategic fit, investment in € & time and created value. Within a project new Missions can be started (such as ideation mission) to help you get the job done successfully.  

Automatically, there is a backlog of all project activities but you cannot keep track of activities. There are many great tools available for that. We help innovation teams to keep track of all projects and to monitor progress and create value. So, you will be in control of delivering successful innovations and close the loop to give feedback to idea creators what results the ideas have brought.
