Innovation and Idea Management at PricewaterhouseCoopers

In this video, PricewaterhouseCoopers Global Chairman Dennis Nally talks about the importance of innovation at PricewaterhouseCoopers and the recent introduction of their Idea Management System to manage their innovation processes.

The key initiatives Nally announces in this video are:

PwC is using Elguji Softwares IdeaJam for their iPlace initiative. Sheldon Laube and his staff are a wonderful team to work with.

Hello Bruce,

Thanks for dropping by and letting us know!

Would you be interested in writing a guest post, or me interviewing you about the problem PwC faced, the brief your team received, and how you designed and implemented an Idea Management solution for them? It would be great to dive in to more detail in to this case study with you.

Alternatively, Sheldon and his team may be interested in contributing.

Just let me know by email via the contact page if this sounds good to you!

Kind Regards


Lauchlan Mackinnon
