A large corporation implements a development program based on the Japanese kaizen business philosophy derived from the Lean Manufacturing methodology. It provides for the possibility of reporting small but continuous improvements that will improve the production process, reduce costs and improve the quality of the products themselves. However, reporting improvements directly to your supervisor does not bring the results expected by management. There are few applications, and employees complain that the selection process is unclear and, as a result, discourages them.
To improve the transparency of the improvement submission process, management decides to install Idea Hub, as most of the corporate employees have accounts in the Jira system. Thanks to this, ideas can be submitted publicly, put to the vote by the rest of the crew and then selected according to clear criteria. The number of applications increases and the management board can announce success in implementing the program.
