Find the Best Ideas

When an idea seems to have some promise, advance it through a customizable workflow that vets it with key stakeholders, such as compliance or IT. Find out what’s feasible—or not feasible—early so your team only works on solutions that will matter. Put all feedback and ideas through a codified process so you can trust the results.

Kindling makes it easy to apply your experts’ perspectives to your team’s ideas, so you can use real data to make a confident decision—and then communicate to your team exactly why you’ve made that decision so that they’ll remain engaged.
