What is ideation?
There are many definitions of this term swirling around the web and of course this may make it much harder to get a firm, fundamental grasp on the concept. Dorian Simpson, author of Ideation 101: Discovering new opportunities, serves up a very simple definition: “Ideation is the systematic search for targeted opportunities in the form of new features, new products, new markets, and new services”.
While many leading organizations (some that I have touched upon in past blog posts) such as Volvo, Threadless, Nivea, Starbucks, etc… have successfully utilized effective ideation methods to give direction to their product and service strategy and deliver more value to their customers, many companies still overlook or ignore this crucial phase- furthermore, they do not equip themselves with the right tool set to help facilitate the PDP.
