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.

Score or decline ideas from the innovation page:

If you’re using the new navigation:

  1. Select Strategy in the top navigation bar and select the strategic snapshot containing the idea you want to score or decline.
  2. On the sidebar, select More items in the list of options.
  3. Select Innovation; the innovation page displays.

If you’re using the old navigation:

  1. Select Enterprise from the left Nav menu.
