The solution’s functionality helps us to prioritize and select the best ideas. Many times, we will use an expert team to help pick roles. At the same time, we also rely on the Pairwise to simply go off of the input from the crowd.

The solution’s functionality helps us to prioritize and select the best ideas. The voting and amount of activity an idea gets in the comments section helps us know how to move a presented solution forward to investigate it further or if it's something that we're not getting good engagement on because people haven't bought into the suggestion or identified it as a problem. This usually helps us to table ideas so we can focus our resources on the most valuable problems to solve. There are also sometimes teammates who say, "Yes, this is a problem. Here is my workaround." This helps with the collaboration as well.

Spigit's functionality helps us to prioritize and select the best ideas. The one caveat with that is that "best" is usually a subjective term. What's neat about the platform is the transparency so everyone can understand. There are clear rules on what it takes to move from phase to phase. Things get communicated through the tool or individually, and that creates a lot of power. What's often tricky for coworkers is that they don't know what happened to the ideas they submitted, in general, or why an idea gets acted on or not. They can say, "Hey, my boss didn't want to do my idea," or, "I'm upset about it." What's neat about using Spigit is that they can see why ideas are doing better. In pairwise, the coworkers themselves are judging them. Some people might still think some aspect of that is unfair, or they don't get it, but it's very clear: This idea had a higher percentage of thumbs-up to thumbs-down than that one did. It was more broadly well-received and that's why it got selected. That type of transparency is really important.

The voting is one way in terms of how the solution’s functionality helps us to prioritize and select the best ideas. E.g., we use the number of views on an idea, the number of votes, and the number of comments that an idea gets. We're using this for most for our challenges which are expert reviews. This is where we're gathering experts who do a simple scoring mechanism. The final stage is where we use a pairwise. This is the top ideas, usually 15 ideas, then do a pairwise with the organization. We tend to have lower participation by this point but we still find we're getting enough people to statistically get a good representation. So far, so good with the way ideas are prioritized.
