IDEATION

Ideation is a way of gathering, screening, and managing project ideas at GP.  It is the process of forming, collecting, clarifying, screening, and connecting business strategies and objectives to project ideas.  Ideation enables the idea for consideration as a potential project (opportunity).  The goals of Ideation are to:

  • Increase acceptance rate of beneficial ideas
  • Streamline the review process
  • Establish a clear connection of project ideas to business priorities
  • Waste less time on projects that “don’t go”
  • Respond to market needs more quickly
  • Realize savings faster

 

The main processes within Ideation are:

  1. Create the project idea
  2. Submit the project idea for Pre-P0 review
  3. Pre-P0 review of the project idea
  4. Ranking of the project idea
