Drinking Our Own Champagne: The Idea Engine 2.0 Design Jam

Posted by Luke Hohmann on Oct 28, 2015 5:10:54 PM

A little more than five years ago, Conteneo introduced the first scalable platform for visual collaboration, now called Idea Engine. Since then, we've built two other products, Strategy Engine and Alignment Engine, made drastic improvements to Decision Engine, launched a nonprofit to bring our techniques to the public sector and a whole bunch of other cool stuff! Unfortunately, along the way, Idea Engine received less love than it deserved and become a little stale. So stale, in fact, that we've decided to redesign and rethink the platform, reset our technology stack and create some powerful new capabilities that promote even more scalable collaboration and innovation. This is Idea Engine 2.0, and this is the first of several stories we'll share about its creation. Our hope is that you'll find techniques that you can leverage for your own products and services.

I recently completed an unusually fun project: Paul Mantey from NetApp invited me, and my colleague and Certified Collaboration Architect John Heintz from Gist Labs, to make a series of short, educational films for the NetApp sales team. John covered Agile and DevOps, Paul presented NetApp's completely unique value proposition for Agile DevOps, and Paul and I discussed how NetApp's Impact Discovery Workshops, which are powered by Innovation Games® collaboration frameworks, radically change the sales process.
