Purpose and goal
Örebro lacks an organized support to seize, test and develop innovative ideas and suggestions for the municipality as a whole. The purpose of the study is to investigate how an idea lock service could be formed and organized to serve as a tool for concrete quality improvement and, as a result, contribute to a more innovative organization.
Expected results and effects
The goal of the preliminary study was that this would result in a substantiated plan for the managing/starting up of Örebro Municipal Idea Lock Service. Process, organization, working methods and objectives would be ´prepared´, interested parties contacted and dialogue and information activities- anchoring efforts - initiated internally. This goal has been achieved. The proposal regarding execution of the project is forwarded to the municipal manager and her steering committee. Overall, Örebro Municipal Idea Lock Service has kindled great interest.
Planned approach and implementation
The focus has been on developing an idea lock service, perceived as ´useful´.It has been of great importance to partly study other locks (within and outside the municipal world), and to seek viewpoints/opinions internally about demand-based requirements in detail. Both structural as well as cultural issues have been the focus. Through exchange of experience, and after a number of workshops with target groups, the picture of how Örebro Municipal Idea Lock Service will be formed and function, and what is possible to accomplish with support from this service, has become increasingly clear
