Introduction

Ideation is a key component of any successful business that allows companies to become innovative and remain competitive in the market. Through constant employee participation, engagement and brainstorming, new innovative ideas can be generated that will lead to new business projects and product innovations.

    • An ideation project page that describes the project and its status.
