    I’m Just All Out Of Ideas 

    I’ve been sitting here contemplating a lot of things and I’ve just come to the conclusion that I’m just all out of ideas. I just don’t know what to do next. But this business & related projects have to move forward, things have to get going. I just need new ideas. My team and I are waiting on the next “BIG IDEA”.

    We’re not concerned with small ideas, we need the next “BIG THING”. Seems as though we’re just getting little to nowhere with innovation & brainstorming.

    Does this sound like you or you and your team?

    The recession crisis has had a big impact on businesses of all sizes. It has left many of them with little to no motivation for innovation. In the good or bad times of business you need to have innovation or brainstorm to get some. Instead of waiting for the next “BIG IDEA”, rethink about some old or small ideas. That could get you moving in the right direction.

    Sometimes you have to thoroughly consider what you thought was a small idea, bad idea or old idea and it could be a really good one. Waiting on the next big idea can be good but very short sighted.

    “How often does your company develop ‘big ideas’ and what is their impact?”

    In the area of idea generation, innovation & idea management, many businesses  may seem stuck in a rut. Idea generation & management is an emerging area of knowledge management that hopes to help companies capture good ideas and act on them.

    Whether you’re by yourself or with a team, you need ideas. Sometimes business just can’t be business as usual. Idea management systems and processes can help your company make innovation a discipline. Idea collaboration & innovation helps you to harness your company’s internal insight to save money & time.

    Business is created by ideas first. Developing business strategies involves idea generation. Once you’re in business you need ideas for design, engineering, manufacturing, marketing, advertising, creative problem solving, customer retention, etc… The difference between success or failure in business could be just one idea.

    Staying competitive means constantly innovating. Great ideas need to be captured and implemented so that they can produce results. Innovation & idea generation is no longer an option, it’s a core business competency to maintain competitive advantage & achieve growth targets. Companies that achieve significant outcomes are using a set of  processes & technology known as idea management systems.

    Your company needs to have a cohesive environment where you all can come together as one. If not, there needs to be room for improvements. Everyone won’t agree on everything but everything should be laid out on the table for review & further study.

    Entrepreneurs and business managers are often so preoccupied with immediate issues that they lose sight of their ultimate objectives. That’s why a business review & preparation of a strategic plan is a virtual necessity. A strategic plan is not a business plan. It’s a way  to organize your thoughts, structure your ideas and compile a short but comprehensive strategic idea plan for any size and type of organization. It helps you with your business management, idea generation, innovation etc…

    Whether you’re trying to come up with a blog post or making improvements to a product or service, sometimes you’re just out of ideas. Many times when you feel stuck you may feel like you’ll be stuck forever. But that’s just not the case, especially if you make time for brainstorming.

    No mater what business that you’re in, there’s always a need for creativity. Consider a few things to help you with your idea generation and innovation, such as:

    • Mind Mapping–the technique of arranging ideas and their interconnections visually on paper or computer. It’s a way to collect & structure ideas. It can be a powerful tool for managing your projects, your goals and even your to-do lists. Utilize mind mapping software, an innovation consultant, try it by yourself etc…
    • Read up on various business topics & your industry, the ins & outs, dos & don’ts, new/ old trends etc…
    • Review some of your latest work or past business operations or processes.
    • Utilize Strategic Planning–it must be flexible and reflect your company’s thoughts, feelings, ideas and shape them to fit your current project at hand or your company’s purpose, mission & regulations.
    • Utilize Virtual Assistance to offload & outsource distractions, outsource tasks that keep you from your core focus.
    • Utilize free or paid online idea management websites/ services, idea generation software or collaboration systems.
    • Think about what you’ve done in the past , rehash some old ideas or talk to others.
    • Improve your decision making skills to help you sort through ideas.

    Ideas come in all shapes & sizes and in depth brainstorming is a big part of it. Sometimes a small idea can develop into a big idea & lead to the next “BIG THING”. So try not to neglect or brush off small ideas, they may be worth your time and effort to investigate for long term success. They can be put on the back burner for later discussion or included in the idea at hand to make it even better. Big ideas are what you add to your marketing campaign or business operations to separate you from your competition.

    It’s a rat race out there and you do need the next “big thing”, but many times the next big thing is short lived. So there is power in small ideas & they can have longevity. Sometimes the impact of small ideas can greatly out shine what you thought was a “big idea”. They may not be earth-shattering or shake the foundation of your corporation, but small ideas, when added together, provide the same market capitalization & advantages as the big ideas.

    Some big ideas may be short lived, but they do provide incredible boosts in brand recognition, customer loyalty, competitive separation, employee morale, and company performance. You can develop sustainable growth though knowledge management, innovation & idea generation. In some companies a big obstacle to innovation is poor internal communication.

    The biggest challenge is to deal with the unknown. Innovation is something that people have grown to believe is a wonderful thing. Since many people believe innovation is a good thing, it becomes harder to manage the unquantifiable elements of the innovation process: the unknown, the unexpected, the failures.

    Sometimes innovation can lead to failure rather than success. When developing new ideas and brainstorming,  the old one percent inspiration, 99 percent perspiration rule still applies, except that the inspiration is now facilitated by the multidisciplinary nature of innovation.

    Sometimes a lot of inspiration comes from the cross-fertilization of ideas, learning from each other. In many organizations there should be environments, forums and working groups that involve people from different disciplines learning from each other. More than just sharing what you know, but rather learning the things that you think you know. That might be an important aspect when working in a team, in addition to having free dialogue where people can learn from each other and make better decisions.

    Decision-making continues to be one of the most difficult pieces of the innovation process. The current economic downturn has had a huge impact on company innovation & idea generation. In a downturn the key message is to focus on the core business. Innovation should be the most important solution for growth during the bad times. When you have a downturn in the economy, immediately shift your focus to the core part of business.

    Focusing  on the core while yet maintaining the long-term growth strategies can be difficult. In the bad times, brainstorming new ideas for growth and improvements can seem like a big leap, but look at the long term effects. Look at whats going on but don’t let that be your focus, it can be a reminder but not a core focus.

    The important thing is to be able to focus. You should look at eliminating all or the majority of distractions for better brainstorming & collaboration. Develop a long term view of things but at the same time look at other details. Innovation & motivation is very critical and many companies should invest heavily in it.

    But many seem to invest in incremental innovation, which is innovation that is lower risk and more focused on the short-term, as opposed to what is termed ‘breakthrough’ innovation that involves long-term investment and higher risk.

    Coming up with new ideas isn’t always easy but for your business longevity and success it’s well worth the try.~~Clerical Business Solutions
