Automate everyday innovation
within your organization.
Invent Value is a single platform for cultivating divergent thinking and
transforming your team’s creativity into valuable results.
Understand the problem, opportunity and constraints, then set your team free to independently cultivate divergent thinking. Ideas from others are hidden at this stage to prevent groupthink.
Collaborate as a team.
Everyone’s ideas become visible and your team is encouraged to ask questions, discuss ideas, give praise, and contribute additional thinking.
Review all contributions holistically and allow your team to vote for the best ideas. Moderators can reward top contributors and turn key takeaways into action items.
Gather thinking in one place
Create boards for different project, departments, or initiative. Give team members a place to contribute ideas outside of a challenge. Automatically import ideas from a completed challenge.
Visually sort ideas

Turn your problems, opportunities, and initiatives into beautiful problems and exciting challenges by framing them up and decide who helps out. Our wizard with sample questions, description placeholders, guiding constraints, and more helps you prepare for guiding your team to innovate.
Have a calendar for scheduling innovation challenges that relate to key problems or initiatives to spur growth. Plan out challenges related to your initiatives to fire periodically to keep everyone engaged in what matters.
Gathering ideas isn’t enough because it just creates an overload of work for typically one person to review. Rather, ensure there is a process to gather divergent ideas (ideate), encourages cross functional discussion to hone ideas (collaborate), and then evaluate ideas most valuable for action (evaluate).
Invite all of your company to engage on your challenges or just select groups based on the privacy of the challenge. Consider independent outsiders to draw on expertise and independent opinions. User reminders to ensure you get needed input.
Utilize monetary or custom rewards on regular basis to instill in your team that innovation matters. Tie rewards to contributions so that people collaborate effectively.
Provide public recognition of those helping out at any level to give intrinsic motivation. Give certificates and ensure praise and peer recognition is facilitated so that good ideas and contributors get energy to succeed.
If you care about something and want to see it grow, measuring it is the basis for performance. Analyze your innovation pulse inside a company by number of ideas contributed and the quality of those ideas. Build metrics for each person at an individual level and holistic team metrics.
Every idea can be turned into an action item that is planned, in progress, or implemented...or transferred to your project management tool. Actions are aggregated for evaluating the pipeline of innovation.
Help everyone be creative and understand what drives value through a series of innovation principles, creativity trainings, and digital content to help individuals think fresh and focus on value.
