Innovation Doesn't Happen in a Spreadsheet

Welcome to the modern world of innovating.

We've made it easy to share ideas within your entire innovation ecosystem. And, everything has been designed intentionally to support a culture ready to innovate anywhere, at anytime!

How Innovation Takes Flight
From Idea to Cash  


Innovation is a sales job. Idea's won't get off the ground without a good pitch. That's where a lot of good ideas get stuck and it's also where most innovation management platforms stop: ideation.

InnovationWorks completes the entire execution process, step-by-step, from "idea to cash," and guides innovators through a simple Air Traffic Control System for Innovation. Ideas start and are vetted in the hangar. Approved ideas become Test Flights that advance to the runway for cyber, legal and procurement review. When ready, test flights are cleared for take-off and in-flight testing is completed. All learnings are captured in our content management system so when a lane lands, it's ready for its final "Go/No-Go" decision with a business case.
