HOW CAN I VOTE ON THE PROPOSALS OF OTHER INVENTORS?

You must be a registered user and logged in on The Best Idea platform to vote on the Proposals. It is very easy to find the Proposals on which to vote; proceed as follows:

  1. Select the item “Vote” and click the sub-item “Proposals“;
  2. You will be redirected to a page containing all published Proposals that you are enabled to see because you are part of those “Groups”, still in the voting period, and at the beginning the relative filtering system by Category or with a free text, in which you can enter a keyword or the Necessity to which they answer, or by Group involved;

Pay attention that you will be evaluated as much as you have been careful and able to vote with conscience and commitment!

In this you are helped by the table because you can proceed for three successive mental steps, deciding first if the Proposal deserves a vote above or below the continuous median line and once made this choice by deciding whether the Proposal deserves a vote above or below the dotted line of the chosen portion and finally deciding the final numerical vote and clicking on it.

For each of these subsequent choices, the correspondence with the majority of users will be verified and you will get a rating as a voter, with a higher score as close as the average vote of the others, but with a corrective multiplier that is higher if it is close at the ends of the scale (3 or 10) and gradually lower and lower if it is close to those more internal to the scale (6 and 7).

Only the Proposals with voting in progress will be displayed, that is those in which a judgment can be made.

You can vote only once for each Project.

WHY AND HOW IS A VOTE FOR THE VOTANT GIVEN?

To prevent the vote being given absent-mindedly, without carefully evaluating the Project, a multiplicative coefficient was introduced, the MEC score (Multiplier of Experience for Category), linked to the ability to best represent the majority of voters for a determined category of Proposals.

The more your vote is relevant to the one given by the majority of users, the more your evaluation will affect the following votes you will make; on the contrary, the more your vote deviates from the majority, the less it will influence in the next voting.

Your vote is not however compared only with the average score obtained by that Project, but a much more refined calculation system is used, which allows you to choose according to your conscience, as it is not useful to obtain a higher grade to make reasoning related only to the probability of approaching to the average.

Every time you make an assessment, the platform calculates your vote in relation to what is given by the majority of voters, which will average with the other votes you have taken in the past, to get a list of the best voters that will be visible.

The MEC multiplier is growing with the average vote you will have taken, according to a particular algorithm, but taking into consideration only the last two months of voting, this will allow you to improve your influence more and more in the evaluation of a Proposal in the various categories!

YOUR MULTI-PHASE PROJECT IN THE BEST IDEA

WHAT IS A MULTI-PHASE PROJECT IN THE BEST IDEA?

Multi-Phase Project is a method to involve a work group, stimulating the creative process at the request of a Proposal Manager with the role of facilitator, for the production and communication of Ideas to vote, in response to various business needs such as “Research and development” of a new product, the introduction of “Lean Management” procedures, and more generally to make “innovation”, also using Design Thinking methods.

The Best Idea platform allows all participants to work even remotely, without necessarily having to meet in person, in the times preferred by everyone for a part of the phases that make up the process, and to the Proposal Manager to prepare all the foreseen development activities, using pre-established models if possible.

All this can be extremely valuable, for example, for the “Research and development” of a new product, dividing the operations in the various phases that make up the process, leaving out only the phases for which the platform cann’t operate, such as the control operations of the feasibility of the solution, its prototyping and listening to the customer, but entering them within the process and its viewing.

HOW DO I ENTER MY GROUP IN THE BEST IDEA?

The Group in The Best Idea is used to limit the view and voting of what has been published to a group of people you want to involve, as determined by those who publish them through a choice in the format for entering.

In the case of Multi-Phase Project, the Group can for example be composed of some or all employees, or possibly customers or suppliers.

To be able to enter a Group within The Best Idea platform, you must have paid the subscription; you can do this payment even after entering your Group data.

After checking if you meet both the above requirements, proceed as indicated in Groups.

HOW DO I ENTER MY MULTI-PHASE PROJECT?

When you enter a Multi-Phase Project in The Best Idea you become the Project Manager; the program allows you to use an existing Model, choosing among the types of Multi-Phase Models available in response to various business needs, which can still be modified and integrated according to your needs, or you can start from scratch with a completely different type, entering directly the various “Activities” that you deem necessary for the development of the Multi-Phase Project, organized in “Chapters“.

Inside, each Activity, which provides the choice between a Challenge/Request, a Poll, a Flash Response or a Proposal, can be entered by choosing among the categories linked to the business functions that are the target of the Idea, so that the information is organized.

To be able to enter a Multi-Phase Project within The Best Idea platform you must be registered on the platform and have paid the annual or monthly fee.

After checking if you meet the above requirements, you can first choose whether to start from scratch to enter your Multi-Phase Project or use an available Model.

The first phase is to prepare the Project in draft form, in order to be able to check it before publishing it and then progressively entering the start and end dates of the activities of the individual “Activities”.

If you want to start from scratch for entering your Multi-Phase Project, proceed as follows:

  1. Create a Reference Group, whose name in this case could be the Topic for a specific Multi-Phase Project goal;
  2. Click on the top menu under “Enter” and select the sub-item “Multi-Phase“. Each Multi-Phase Project will receive the identification code generated by the system automatically;
  3. In the format that opens you first find the possibility to publish it as a Team (instead of just in your name) by clicking a checkbox and in this case a dropdown menu opens to choose the team among those you are part of;
  4. Under this, the input language English appears;
  5. Fill in all the mandatory fields of the initial part, marked with this symbol: (*); particular attention should be paid to the title (which will appear in the display rectangle) and to the complete description of the purposes;
  6. Choose carefully the category of your project, selecting the Macro-category / Category / Sub-category through the related drop-down menus that open progressively (you can see all the possibilities available by clicking on “View the list of all categories”);
  7. You will then have to choose the Group that will be able to see it to reply, through another dropdown menu or clicking a button to create a new one;
  8. Enter the Description for the 1st Chapter which will include one or more activities;
  9. Instead, you do not have to fill in the “Conclusions” field, which you will fill in only when you have finished the work foreseen by all the activities of that Chapter;
  10. Enter the various “Activities“, one at a time, until the Chapter is completed, ordering them so that they can be easily published in a predetermined order;
  11. Choose whether they are Challenges/Requests, Surveys, Flash Responses or Proposals;
  12. You can enter the start and end dates, but if you want you can avoid filling them at the beginning, and then do it as you wish, one activity at a time; the Activities that have completed the expected period of use can’t be modified;
  13. Choose whether to use an available Model for each activity, with different lists depending on whether they are Challenges/Requests, Surveys, Flash Responses or Proposals, by clicking the “Use Model” button and then eventually modify it and adapt it to your needs; if you do not click the button you will have all the fields free;
  14. If you have not used an existing Model, fill in all the mandatory fields of the activity, marked with this symbol (*) and different depending on the choice you made between Challenges/Requests, Poll, Flash Responses or Proposals;
  15. In all cases you must fill in the fields of Title, Group and Company Area, it is optional to fill in the Description and insert files, for example images, or the link to a YouTube video, obviously leaving blank the text of the “Conclusions” field which you will fill in only when you have finished the work for this specific activity;
  16. In the case of the Challenge/Request you will have to choose the type of response between Flash Response, Proposal or Business Plan, while in the case of the Poll you will have to choose the type of Poll (with textual or numerical answers);
  17. Add other Chapters with the related Activities if necessary;
  18. You can always change the order of the various activities or move them in another chapter, and before moving an activity it is better to reduce its size by clicking on the activity triangle at the top right and then dragging the rectangle to the desired position
  19. You can also delete it by clicking on the delete button at the top right of the activity
  20. When you have completed all the Chapters, if you believe that the Multi-Phase Project that you have compiled can serve as a Model for other Multi-Phase Projects, you can click the “Save as Model” flag and if you want the other flag “Suggest the model to all users. Before being published it must be approved by the Website Operator”; in this case a new Model will be created and reported to the Website Operator who can make it available to everyone, receiving a reward for your help and being able to download a certificate of capacity to be used for your reputation;
  21. Once the entry is complete, save your Multi-Phase Project.

At the end of the insertion, the site sends an email to the Inventor’s email; moreover it will be notified in the notifications section.

 

If you want to use an available Model, or see if there is one that can help you, proceed as follows:

  1. Click on the top menu under “Enter” and select the sub-item “Use Model” and among these the sub-item “Multi-Phase Projects“;
  2. A page will open with the ordered list of models that you have created and those available for everyone;
  3. If you find a Model you want to use, you can simply click it and it will open a new page with the same format used to start from scratch for the entering your Multi-Phase Project, but in which you can view the complete structure of various “Chapters” and “Activities”, and you can edit them or move the order, completely delete a part or add more, according to your needs;
  4. Proceed with filling the remaining fields or replacing the choices you find already filled;
  5. After completing the entry, save your Multi-Phase Project in draft.

 

The second phase is to recall the draft, verify it and enter the start and end dates of the activities of the first “Activity” and then publish it:

  2. the “MASTER MEMBERS” are those who can see all the Ideas (Proposals, Flash Responses , Business Plans, Polls, Surveys), also deriving from a activity of the Multi-Phase Project, both of the other “master members” and of the “members for confidential ideas”, and who can participate in their vote or in the case of Challenges/Requests, answer with an Idea; they are also empowered to authorize the release (one at a time) of the display of the Ideas and Challenges/Requests published by the “members for reserved ideas”, a release that must also have prior authorization from his creator, “member for reserved ideas”;
  3. the “MEMBERS FOR CONFIDENTIAL IDEAS” are those who can only see all the Ideas of the “main members”, and who can participate in their vote or in the case of Challenges/Requests, answer with an Idea; they can also see some of the Ideas of the other “members for confidential ideas”, those that obtained authorization to release from one of the “main members” and the subsequent prior authorization also of his creator, “member for confidential ideas”;

HOW DO I ENTER A GROUP IN THE BEST IDEA?

The Group in The Best Idea is used to limit the viewing and voting of what has been published to a group of people you want to involve, as determined by those who publish them through a choice in the format for entering.

To be able to enter a Group within The Best Idea platform, you must be registered on the platform and have paid the annual or monthly fee; you can do this payment even after entering your Group data.

You can also add in one fell swoop the “main members” and the “members for confidential ideas” that I had already included in a “TEAM“, which is nothing more than a Group already created, maintaining the same division between main members and members for the private ideas they have within the team.

After checking whether you meet both of the above requirements, proceed as follows:

  1. Click on the menu “Enter” at the top and select the sub-item “Group“;
  2. Enter the “Group Name“;
  3. Enter the various user email adresses of the “ADMINISTRATORS” of the group directly or through an Excel file “csv”;
  4. Enter the various user email adresses of the “MASTER MEMBERS“, directly or through an Excel file “csv”;
  5. Enter the various user email adresses of the “MEMBERS FOR CONFIDENTIAL IDEAS“, directly or through an Excel file “csv”;
  6. Enter, one at a time, the “TEAMS” that join the Group, through the drop-down menu;
  7. Save your Group in draft or decide whether to create it right away!

WHAT IS THE ``MEC``

The MEC (Multiplier of Experience by Category) is the multiplicative coefficient linked to the ability to best represent the majority of voters for a given category of Proposals.

The more your vote is relevant to the one given by the majority of users, the more your assessment will affect the following votes you will make; on the contrary, the more your vote deviates from the majority, the less it will influence in the next voting.

Your vote is not however compared only with the average score obtained by that Project, but a much more refined calculation system is used, which allows you to choose according to conscience, as it is not useful to obtain a higher grade to make reasoning related to the probability of approaching to the average.

Every time you make an assessment, the platform calculates your vote in relation to what is given by the majority of Voters, which will average with the other votes you have taken in the past, to get a list of the best voters that will be visible.

The MEC multiplier is growing with the average vote you will have taken, according to a particular algorithm, but taking into consideration only the last two months of voting, this will allow you to improve your influence more and more in the evaluation of a Proposal in the various categories!
