Learn how Autodesk employees launched a grass-roots effort to create a central repository for sharing ideas and gathering employee feedback. See how the platform has sparked an innovation movement that helps us identify, promote, and implement our best ideas.


In this session, you’ll learn how you can use an idea management platform to:

  • Get your employees fired up about innovation and collaboration.
  • Implement employee-submitted ideas that can reduce costs, increase employee engagement and productivity, streamline processes, and more.
  • Increase employee engagement by showing employees that their ideas are welcomed and heard and that they can be a part of the solution.
  • Turn up the “fun factor” with gamification and innovation incentives.
  • Empower employees to volunteer to work on ideas they’re passionate about.
  • Issue short-term “idea challenges” to solicit ideas for solving specific problems  .
