A university study estimates that the average person has more than 6,000 thoughts every day. We’ve all had a few genuinely good ideas among those brief, random moments. It can be challenging to bring ideas to life.
Having a process for executing ideas is essential. Ideas can be generated, defined, and realized using these 4 steps.
Get all ideas out in the open. Write them down and discuss them with a team. Ask the question, “What problem or need are we trying to solve with our idea?”. This clarifies the purpose or outcome.
2. Ask the Right Questions
– Is there a budget or means to make this idea a reality?
– Do we have the people or expertise to make this idea happen?
– Do we have the time and resources to make this idea a reality?
3. Implement a Plan
Be thorough. Your planning process should include: an outline, documenting the plan, choosing a point person to delegate tasks, and understanding the risks and budget.
4. Gather Feedback
Make sure you are prepared to explain your idea thoroughly, answer tough questions, and deal with criticism. Take critiques in stride and don’t take them personally. If it seems constructive and valid, consider how it can improve your idea or lead you in a new direction.
