Once you have management support, as covered in part 3, in part 4 we’ll see why planning, and the different types of plans that need to be in place, is so important.

Detailed Planning is essential

Establish aims, objectives, targets and measurements for the suggestion scheme.

The overall objective of the programme should be to help optimise business results and encourage a proactive workforce.

Some examples:

  • To promote creativity and innovation across the organisation to assist with the delivery of organisation’s innovation strategy
  • To encourage all employees to submit suggestions relating to revised business practices and delivery of key performance results
  • To deliver on key performance indicators
  • To generate ideas that contribute to improved delivery and efficiency

Strategic Planning

It is imperative that a clear planning process is undertaken. Stakeholders are identified and it is established what their requirements and expectations are.

A Business Plan is essential.

This should identify aims and objectives of the suggestion programme with specific targets, measures and expected outcomes. Identify responsibilities and the resources needed to achieve the expected outcomes.

A Communications and Marketing Plan is also essential.

The suggestion programme should assist with the delivery of the aims, objectives and innovation strategy of the organisation and reflect the present and future needs and expectations of all stakeholders.
