The development of LIKE MY IDEA solution is motivated by an increasing need to embrace the Lean principles of continuous improvement in enterprise organizations. Continuous improvement is recognized as a powerful and effective way to improve critical business processes in order to retain the market position or to make it thrive. Lean methodology gives special attention to added value for end users of products and services that organization offers on market. Simply, lean means creating more value for customers with fewer resources. A lean organization understands customer value and focuses its key processes to continuously increase it. Solution description LIKE MY IDEA provides the platform for implementation of your Continuous improvement process and allows every member of the community to express, elaborate and show their ideas to other members in an easy, fun and motivating way. Process starts with some long or short term challenges that organization faces and seek the ideas on specific topics. These challenges are announced to the community and employees can contribute ideas or solution to the specific challenge and vote for other ideas. After the number of votes reaches predefined threshold the idea can graduate and it’s immediately propagated to Continuous improvement process. Employees involved in the idea creation can get feedback about the realization of their projects through social communities and they can be rewarded for their contribution.
