Applications

Conteneo’s Idea Engine is used for divergent, open-ended explorations of complex problems.

Small groups are typically creative in nature and leverage the Idea Engine as a single team to share knowledge, learn from each other, and build consensus. Large groups are organized into multiple teams, where each team uses Idea Engine to generate a unique result that is used for pattern analysis across the teams. Want to see Idea Engine in action?

Identifying Unmet Needs

While the foundation of all innovation is an understanding of unmet customer and market needs, the challenge is finding those unmet needs in the first place! Superficial surveys fail to give product teams the insights that drive innovation. Conteneo’s Idea Engine is a unique and powerful mechanism to engage customers and members of your market in powerful, engaging forums that generate high-impact ideas for your innovation portfolio.

Product and Service Roadmapping 

Visual metaphors such as Prune the Product Tree enable internal and external teams to identify opportunities for evolution and growth of products and services. And when you’re pruning efforts still leave you with too many good ideas, use Conteneo’s Decision Engine to select the best ideas.

Enterprise Retrospectives

Organizations seeking to improve performance can use frameworks based on visual metaphors such as Speed Boat and Sail Boat or Agile Retrospective frameworks such as Circles and Soup to guide retrospectives and create compelling data for analysis. The scalable nature of the Conteneo Collaboration Cloud supports single teams or multiple teams around the globe, scaling from a few people to thousands of employees.

Innovation Portfolio Management

Visual frameworks such as the Innovation Ambition Matrix enable internal teams to structure innovation portfolios, while planning tools such as the Whole Product Model help you balance opportunities with organizational capabilities. Forums that can run for weeks on end enable distributed teams to come together as a team, establish individual work assignments, and then return to work as a team to finalize insights and choices.

Transamerica’s Director of Innovation Terry Matheny and Innovation Manager Amanda Seelman discuss how Transamerica is building a culture of innovation where employees are empowered to contribute. Creating and sustaining a culture where employee engagement fuels innovation isn’t an easy task—in fact, it’s quite complex. Yet, Transamerica has found that Conteneo Collaboration Cloud, Collaboration Consulting and the Ideas to Action™ Framework have simplified the process, providing employees with simple, easy-to-use tools for collaboratively generating ideas and moving them along in a process that leads to new products and new revenue for the company.

[testimonial name=” name_color=” position=” position_color=” background_color=” avatar_link=”]

caduceus-30591_640The Federal Health Futures Group (initiated by the US Air Force Medical Services) used a customized visual framework to support healthcare professionals in exploring how teamwork and collaboration can be used to better server patients and their families. Working with Conteneo’s Collaboration Architects, they chose the metaphor of an American Football game — “Health as a Team Sport.” One of the insights from their work is that they found that most health professionals believe health is a “Defensive” game, but to realize breakthroughs in healthcare we need to be “offensive” in driving outstanding health care outcomes.
