Call Idéslussar i kommuner - utvecklingsprojekt

Purpose and goal

The goal of the project is based on a common vision to build an ´idésluss´ for Tranås, Kinda, Aneby, and Ydre municipalities and should be integrated into local development. The aim is to take better care of ideas that arise spontaneously in the organizations and asking for ideas in the systematic development of new ideas. The overall problem scenario applies to municipal services and competence maintenance which we now see a great need for change and new innovations for them to be able to be solved

Expected results and effects

We expect to have a well-functioning idésluss as a natural part of the regular activities of the four municipalities after the project ends. Under the project, the activities and user groups should together develop ideas into practical use. We should have a developed methodology for the development of ideas that are in operation. We also expect an innovative climate and that a collaborative culture permeates all operations after completing the Project.

Planned approach and implementation

We want the project to build on our common goals. We will place great emphasis on communication and information about the idésluss to management and employees in the four municipalities. We will build up a bank of needs to identified needs and problems. We will work with creative workshops and develop an approach for how we will work with the call of ideas and development of ideas. We will organize and standardize the methods and ways of working for innovation.
