HOW SIEMENS HARNESSES THE COLLECTIVE INTELLIGENCE OF THEIR EMPLOYEES

Siemens Uses Spigit Innovation Management Platform

Siemens built its Mobility IDEA Contest on Spigit, using crowdsourcing and open innovation to address major transportation challenges that affect global productivity and efficiency.

CHALLENGE:
Implementing an innovation platform that various business units could all use for their individual innovation programs, tapping internal employees, external crowds, or both.

SOLUTION:
Siemens implemented the Spigit innovation management platform, and launched its Mobility IDEA Contest to find innovative ideas to help solve five of the toughest challenges facing the traffic industry

RESULTS:
A vastly expanded and engaged global network for open innovation, resulting in access to countless mobility ideas that can be tapped over time.

“Working with Spigit, you get more than a platform, you get a team of people working with you that are as passionate about your program as you are. They are always here to help and to give you good advice based on their experience.”
