Product management reviews all submitted ideas and makes a decision whether to accept or decline the idea. Product management needs to think about the benefits and costs of the idea, its implications, score the idea, and answer a few questions to assess what type of opportunity each idea is.
On the Innovation Scoring tab, the ideas are broken down by the following categories:
- New Innovations: All submitted innovations that are not reviewed and scored yet.
- Accepted Innovations: All innovations that are reviewed and scored by the product management.
- Shelved Innovations: All innovations that are reviewed and rejected by the product management.
