How do organizations foster ideas and ensure that worthy and profitable concepts make it into development? In this report, APQC has identified 11 best practices to answer these questions, which were grouped into four front-end innovation study focus areas:

  1. Managing the portfolio of concepts
  2. Innovative idea management
