Six Sigma Black Belt – Quest Diagnostics
“Ideawake helps ExamOne create a centralized location to collect, evaluate, and take action on new ideas. Before Ideawake, we collected and managed ideas via email threads. Now, our employees are able to quickly submit ideas on Ideawake via their phone or computer, and our process is much more transparent because employees can easily track the progress of their ideas as they are evaluated and implemented. Getting started was easy and Ideawake’s expertise has helped us improve our programs overall effectiveness and is responsive to our changing needs.”

Test Concept Delivery
Conduct a part time test of the go to market plan to determine whether an idea is viable in practice while validating the operating model and cost structure.
