The continuous improvement process itself is driven through business process management.

IBM Connections meets IBM BPM
The idea behind LIKE MY IDEA is straightforward – bringing the best-of-breed platforms with different purposes together, so that users can get extra benefits on both sides of the integration. We leverage IBM Connections to engage users to bring ideas to their communities; also using IBM BPM to harvest those ideas (when they are mature enough, when they get a predefined number of votes) and walk them through a continuous improvement process defined in IBM BPM. The process itself can be complex or simple, defined by the customer at will.
We believe that a key success factor of this integration is the two way communication – an idea is not «lost» in BPM once a process is instantiated. Each and every change in the process is sent back to the Connections LMI community so that everyone can see the whole life of every idea that got the right amount of votes.
