10 things we learnt from our clients about the social networks of ideas
13th august 2015. The latest meeting of the ideas4all Clients Club was an open innovation session where we learnt a great deal from our clients’ experience with the social networks of ideas developed by ideas4all Innovation Agora.
These were our specific takeaways from the meeting:
1. Ideas social networks are a powerful agent for innovative change, as demonstrated by several ideas put into practice by our clients.
2. They can be used to create a collective intelligence, bringing together different abilities and sensitivities directed to a common good.
3. They stimulate employee participation in a way that is democratic and transparent.
4. They strengthen employee engagement with the company, since they feel listened to and valued.
6. They contribute to the company’s digitalization, without discriminating between the levels of technological ability within its members.

9. They favor and facilitate the implementation of processes, by designing and refining them.
10. They allow space for reinvention; taking a ‘second look’ at mature product categories and services.
