Organizing Ideas for a company brainstorm: Wiki, blog, what?
January 18, 2008 9:23 AM   Subscribe

I work in a subdivision of a large music entity. There are many high-level ideas and challenges that float around every week. I'm trying to research a system that would allow for our staff of several hundred people to be able to both post ideas and solicit feedback on improving our products, our relationships, etc to a central website as well as being able to respond to others ideas. (for example: "how do we better provide value to cd purchasers" or "what can we do to optimize communication between department") Challenges: - Many of the people involved are not computer-savvy (not sure they'd be able to figure out how to use a wiki) - The individual items will need to be easily categorizable and accessible (this is why i hesitate to use something like Wordpress or Blogger, because after something's no longer on the home page, its out of peoples heads) - There will need to be an intuitive 'global' view I guess I'm kind of asking for something like AskMeFi, actually. But with an additional summary layer. Ideas would be greatly appreciated!

What about a forum?

Imaginatik's Idea Central Software may be up your alley. It's web-based and seems to offer a lot of the concepts you'd want to utilize, but it may be a bit pricey. (Just Googled for "brainstorm software".)

Sony BMG in the UK has its key staff using the Vox platform - mainly to share information about what they're doing, and tips for bands.
