At Wazoku, we are committed to continuously improving our platform to provide our users with the best experience possible. Today, we are thrilled to announce the introduction of Evaluation Scorecards, a powerful tool designed to enhance the evaluation process for ideas within your Challenges. This update brings a wealth of benefits and features aimed at streamlining and enriching the evaluation process, ultimately helping you identify and invest in the most promising ideas.

Key Benefits

Evaluation of ideas is pivotal in the innovation journey, ensuring that resources are allocated to the most impactful concepts. With Evaluation Scorecards, we’re introducing a range of enhancements to facilitate more effective and efficient evaluations:

Richer Evaluation Data: Our new criteria types enable you to gather a more comprehensive set of evaluation data, including estimations of value, overall opinions, time horizons, and qualitative and quantitative insights.

Holistic Evaluation: By combining quantitative and qualitative criteria within a single form, Challenge Managers can gain a deeper understanding of evaluators’ opinions, leading to more informed decisions.

How You Should Use It

The introduction of Evaluation Scorecards empowers Challenge Managers to create evaluation forms tailored to their specific needs. Here’s how you can leverage this feature:

Setup Evaluation Criteria: Define your evaluation criteria using any combination of rating scales, text fields, radio buttons, checkboxes, dropdowns, and number fields.

Enhance Evaluator Experience: Ensure a fair and efficient evaluation process with blind evaluations, improved evaluation tab layout, streamlined submission processes, and simplified evaluator management.

Feature/Functionality Description

Our enhancements extend to both the setup of evaluation criteria and the user experience for evaluators:

Evaluation Criteria Setup: Within the Challenge Builder, enable evaluation within any stage and define the evaluation form using a variety of criteria types, allowing for a nuanced evaluation process.

Evaluator Experience Enhancements: We’ve introduced features such as blind evaluations to reduce bias, an improved evaluation tab layout for better usability, and streamlined submission processes for Lead Evaluators.

With Evaluation Scorecards, we’re not only revolutionizing the way ideas are evaluated but also ensuring a fair, transparent, and efficient process for all stakeholders involved.

In conclusion, the introduction of Evaluation Scorecards represents a significant step forward in our mission to empower organizations to drive innovation effectively. We’re excited about the possibilities this update brings and look forward to seeing the positive impact it will have on your innovation initiatives.
