The sole purpose of any business is to do good for the customer while making a profit. To this end, every company continually comes up with new ideas. But finding out if the plan is a good one or bad one is crucial. Using the method described in this article, one can find the answer to it!

Have you ever discarded a business idea only to be repentant about it later? If your answer is positive, then relax, you’re not alone. Most of the companies and organizations have sometime or the other committed this mistake by often choosing a less innovative idea over a strong one. Powerful organizational innovation depends on identifying and evaluating good quality ideas, & even the ones that are misleadingly so. However, after every innovative thought, a leader faces the impasse of selecting the best one among so many ideas resulting from his/her organization’s innovation process.

So how does one prevail over this challenge and develop a vigorous idea review process? Here are a few essentials one should follow to select good ideas for the business.

Clarity Check

Business necessarily needs a clarity of vision to succeed. In the same way, clarity is the soul of innovations. According to some critics, if there are two explanations for a situation, the simplest explanation is considered as the right one. While one follows this method to choose his/her ideas, it is also inevitable to check the ones that are based on the least assumptions. The less the unknowns in an idea, the better the results. So, with this method, one can easily solve any kind of problems and generate huge revenue.

The practicality of the ideas

Practicality, possibility, and popularity are the basic premises of the innovation. For every idea that one comes across, do a checklist of these questions:

1) Is it efficient?

2) Does it solve a particular difficulty?

3) Does it comfort a practical need?

4) Does it fit a market potential?

5) Does it meet the explicit market demand?

It is simple and easy to make a choice when one has answers to these questions.     

Market Stability

Innovation is not only about creating fresh ideas on a notion but about making a tried and hardened input that stays for a long time. For an idea to be really booming, consider innovation as an obedience and not a whim. Is the idea going to stay? Is it a solution to an exclusive but only one-time demand? Will it have market stability over a period of time or just fade away? If one is dealing with ideas that give very temporary solutions and not a permanent one to a short-lived problem, then one has to be cautious while selecting them.

One-time wonders

The growth of the business, as well as the product, is directly proportional to the scalability.  If one is able to scale the prototypes and develop in numerous cycles without any need for adjustment or reinvention then it is considered that the business is going great. If they are consistently replicated to meet the standards regularly then they are not considered as one time wonders that make the business successful.

Company’s Core Values

Innovative thought leaders often come across magnificent ideas and out-of-the-box, out-of-the-world ideas. But their lack of amalgamation with the company strategy takes away the charisma of their market feasibility. So, one should make sure to keep their core values on the deciding board for identifying and selecting innovative ideas. One should choose ideas that allow them to stay genuine, stay implicated, and be innovative and outstanding. Select ideas that can be incorporated or, at least, have a scope of incorporation with the company’s overall business strategy.

Profitable Ideas

Conclusively, it all ends up with money. Generally, how an idea translates to a company’s overall profitability is one of the relevant criteria for choosing or rejecting a budding product idea. However, as an innovation leader, one has to find a fine balance between an idea of potential earning and all the other factors which are mentioned above.

Doing the business with innovation is challenging yet rewarding. Try to use these tips to find and evaluate ideas from your own creativity. May the best idea make its way and succeed!

Concisely said, there are four elements that matter, besides profitability, while judging a new business idea. They are the practicality of the concept, the market stability of it, clarity check, and how scalable it is, i.e.; it shouldn’t be a one-time wonder.
