Understanding and measuring facilitated idea convergence (UMIC)

Innovation contests have gained wide popularity because organizations can tap into the creative power of the crowd and thus drive their innovativeness. However, overwhelming amounts of information, missing process structures, and little IT-support challenge individuals and teams who need to select the best ideas out of hundreds or even thousands once a contest has ended.

UMIC

Understanding and measuring facilitated idea convergence (UMIC)

Innovation contests have gained wide popularity because organizations can tap into the creative power of the crowd and thus drive their innovativeness. However, overwhelming amounts of information, missing process structures, and little IT-support challenge individuals and teams who need to select the best ideas out of hundreds or even thousands once a contest has ended. UMIC is a stand-alone project (P 29765), funded by the Austrian Science Fund (FWF), and aims at supporting decision-making during idea selection processes. One major goal is to better understand and measure similarities and differences of emerging problems during idea selection within and across organizations involved in innovation contests. Another major goal is to develop IT-support in the form of implemented facilitation techniques as well as feedback and feedforward recommendation to help pre-filtering ideas, remedying information-processing biases, and suggesting relevant information.
