What began as an internal experiment in 2001...

... is now a proven management tool for driving innovation and collaboration. IBM's InnovationJam® offering is ideal for companies and enterprises looking to kick-start a transformation or change program through a transparent 'conversation'. Unlike other ideation platforms, the InnovationJam® is a strategic online event lasting a few days, often tied to a larger campaign. The output helps clarify — and in some cases course correct — activities and initiatives established at the highest level of an organization. Sponsors are provided the raw content and a comprehensive post-event analytics report, illustrating recommendations from their Jam. Developed almost 20 years ago, IBM's InnovationJam® is the first online solution to gather and make sense of the voice of the employee (VoE) to help organizations realize their strategic imperative.

It's transformational

The InnovationJam® acts as a catalyst to drive culture change within an organization. Ideal for mass-size audiences, Jams bring together thousands of individuals who otherwise could never meet.

It's strategic

Similar to a physical conference lasting a few days, registered participants 'jam' online — contributing their opinion in various topics, mixing it up with others to create a powerful voice.

It's a serious research endeavor

Powerful analytics are used during the live event and post-Jam to identify themes and recommended actions based on the contributions of participants.

It's more than just crowdsourcing

Tap a selective crowd, dictated by you. You can identify influencers, and ascertain a snapshot of your organization's personality — to more fully understand barriers to change.

It's an event

2-3 days of jamming with results available in 48 hours, and a comprehensive analytics report provided within three weeks.
