For information on what challenges are and who can create them, check out this ARTICLE.

Creating a challenge is very similar to creating an idea and sprint. Start by navigating to Challenges > + New Challenge.

Challenge Overview:
Give your challenge a #name, short description, background on the challenge, what success looks like, and the business units it impacts.

โ€‹Challenge Strategy: Next, identify what strategy focus the challenge has. Use the slide bars to adjust the focus which animates the spider graph. Underneath the graph, briefly explain how this challenge aligns with the identified focuses.

Challenge Timing: The challenge could be as brief or as long as the creator wants. We do advise that challenges are not shorter than a week though to allow a health amount of ideas and engagement to occur. An exception to this is if a brief-window hackathon is being conducted. if this is the case, and proper incentive and awareness occurs to drive engagement during the small window, than a 24 hour challenge is fine.

Sponsor: The creator can be the sponsor, or you can add another individual as the sponsor of the challenge. This helps show those invited to the challenge that there is upper management support which will encourage more engagement by those involved.

Setup Banner: A branded banner can be added to the top if desired. You can choose from one of the stop images listed, or upload your own file.

Audience: The final step is to choose the challenge's audience. Similar to ideas and sprints, a challenge audience can be as broad or as narrow as desired. Choose one of the following:

  1. All (everyone in the company)

  2. Selected Users (narrow)

  3. Selected Groups (internal and/or external to the company)

  4. My line (your reporting line)

Check out Creating Groups and Audience Selection for further details.

*You can either publish the challenge at that moment or save it as a draft. Saving as a draft might be used if the challenge is prepped before the day that the creator is wanting to make the idea live to the selected audience.
