Q-live innovation workshop – Step by step
Qmarkets has spent years of design and planning along with leading consulting firms and customers, to create the ideal innovation workshop process, that will enable you to get from a business challenge and into the best 5 ideas within a 4-8 hours workshop.
Step 1: Collect ideas
The moderator presents the business challenge and participants submit ideas and solutions.
Step 2: Fast rating session
The participants rate and evaluate ideas, using 5-stars, thumbs up/down or a score-card, providing a clear view of the best ideas
Step 3: Ideas selection
The moderator along with a small group of participants select the top rated ideas plus some high profile ideas that should continue to the next stage.
Step 4: Working in groups
the software splits your participants into groups, each receiving a different idea to develop, by filling in a simple online form (like a mini business-case). It is possible to allow the moderator to rotate the ideas between the groups – each group receiving an idea that was developed by another group, and fine-tuning it.
Step 5: Detailed Evaluation
The top selected ideas, after they were developed in groups, are evaluated by the entire group using a score-card based on a predefined rating criteria (defined by the moderator).
Step 6: Summary & Action Items
The final ideas are shown to the entire audience using visualization tools (like quadrants and spider diagrams) and the results of the session become evident.
At the end, participants are presented with a feedback survey form, collecting important information about the effectiveness of the whole workshop.
