Abstract

Despite being an established topic in research and practice for many years, the literature on idea management lacks a general model for corporate idea management programs. Therefore, the purpose of this study is to develop such a conceptual framework based on the findings of an extensive literature review. In addition, this paper presents an idea management guide that addresses important aspects of an idea management program. To simplify the guide's application for idea managers, it is summarized in a checklist. This paper can serve researchers with a state-of-the-art review and idea managers with a tool for building new idea management programs or reviewing existing ones in companies of different sizes and industries.
