The ideas pipeline is the heart of PiPware, and the repository of all Ideas captured in the system. It provides an overview of the health of the entire portfolio, and a glance at each ideas status. From here it is possible to drill down into ideas or areas to interrogate progress and outliers, or provide filtered views by categories and owners.
Configuring the Ideas Pipeline
To make interrogation of the pipeline easier, there are two views available - accessed from the top right of the screen, these are:
- List view
- Pipeline view
The List view (as indicated by the name) lists all ideas, with owners, stage, status and value.
The Pipeline view shows a card of each idea, grouped by pipeline stage, and shows at a glance if the idea is on track or behind.
The status indicator on the top left of the idea card indicates if the idea is in the correct stage at this point in time.
