Utilize the collective creativity of your team for the idea generation process with SAP StreamWork Brainstorming, a new iPad application that you can use on your mobile device and from within activities.

Traditionally brainstorming takes place in a fairly unstructured way, collecting ideas on a whiteboard, or in a document as they are shouted out by your colleagues. And then what happens once you have all the ideas? Now SAP StreamWork can take care of the logistics so that you and your team can focus on creating the ideas that will help support your business.

With SAP StreamWork this process of brainstorming is effectively managed so that your best ideas are noticed and properly executed upon. You will be able to quickly get consensus on the best ideas with the built-in voting system, and the actions or tasks you need to take from those ideas will be clear. Furthermore, you can increase accountability by tracking the completion of the tasks to ensure that everyone has done their job.

Let’s say you will be working on developing a product that is a news reading app, and you need to come up with a name for it with your team.

You can begin a Brainstorm session to start rattling off ideas, freely contributing along with all participants of the activity with real-time collection and display of idea submissions. You can set time and contribution limits to the session to ensure that it is completed in a timely fashion.

You might know how hard it is to get consensus on what ideas people like most after a brainstorming session. With Brainwave, it’s much easier to collect people’s opinions. Once your Brainwave session has come to an end, submissions are discontinued your team votes on which ideas they like most.

Increase accountability and assure that actions are taken from the ideas that are chosen by assigning Tasks based on voting results. You can track the completion of these by visiting the activity.

Easily keep records of the result of the ideas by continuing your projects and taking your next steps by continuing to use the SAP StreamWork activity once your brainstorming session is completed.

It’s easy to access your Brainstorming session from anywhere. Everything that takes place in the Brainstorming app can also be seen from the corresponding SAP StreamWork activity.

In short, SAP StreamWork’s new Brainstorming application helps you and your colleagues in four key ways:

  • Adds structure to the brainstorming process—from both mobile and desktop
  • Ensures everyone’s ideas are heard
  • Makes it easy to gather consensus on ideas
  • Assists the tracking of actions initiated from ideas

These benefits help you tap into the creative talent of both you and your colleagues, and makes sure that the ideas are effectively used within your business organization.
