"No" may be the hardest word. But it's what employees want to hear when the alternative is...silence.
Put yourself in the shoes of a leader running a collaborative ideation campaign. Or as an executive managing an employee innovation program. Inevitably, you will find yourself saying 'no' to the

What defines a well-put question when asking employees for ideas?

“A problem well put is half solved.” In the excitement over crowdsourcing innovation, companies often fail to make the problem well put. Three mistakes to watch out for.

Yes/no: Customer idea campaigns that are public are fundamentally marketing initiatives. Private work with customers is actual innovation.

How would you describe your innovation culture?

Consistent behaviors define culture. Not statements or one-off actions. In working   with companies, a set of 25 behaviors have emerged that are markers of a collaborative innovation culture. They can be categorized as: Leadership, Awareness, Engagement, Governance. 
A discussion of the four major categories of behaviors that affect collaborative innovation, with a downloadable survey for rating your own organization.

Have you participated in the sharing economy yet?

We’ve had excess items of value - living space, car passenger seats, ideas - laying around forever. We’re seeing a big change in attitudes about making this abundance available, and using it.
Through changing technology and cultural norms, we're harvesting abundance like never before. But the sharing economy is still a work-in-progress.

Does the idea of letting customers evaluate your company’s ideas intrigue or scare you?

Imagine you wanted customers’ take on your internal ideas, before they were developed. How would that work? 
Customers are the arbiters of your company's ideas. Plug into customers' mentality to gain fresh thinking about ideas from an outside-in context.

Plan to use an innovation reward program? Make sure you take into account two key dimensions: (i) ambition level of the employees; and (ii) cognitive complexity of the work. 
Rewards can be a great aid to innovation programs when done right. Follow sounds principles in designing your rewards strategy.

How can you spur innovation without using ideation?

Try something different: (i) Challenge orthodoxy; (ii) What’s working; (iii) Problem-sourcing; (iv) Trendscouting.
Four ways to generate innovation beyond ideation: challenge orthodoxy; what's working; problem-sourcing; trendscouting.
