Our 7 Guiding Principles
There are 7 guiding principles that drive innovation at Voices.com:
Innovation, not instant perfection.
We believe in launching new products and ideas early and often, rather than trying to perfect those ideas behind closed doors before releasing them to the public. Then, customer feedback and popularity prove which projects are most successful.
Share everything you can.
Small teams that communicate openly have proved the best results for Voices.com. We believe in transparency in the workplace so that everyone knows what everyone else is working on. From shared documents to shared calendars and Voices.com promotes online collaboration. Daily "huddles", which are standing-only meetings are short 15 minute bursts of information sharing where facts, figures and opportunities can be discussed and acted upon as a team.
Ideas come from everywhere.
Voices.com applies both critical thinking to generate ideas and crowdsourcing by turning to the community of members for new ideas. With the use of Salesforce Ideas, an idea capturing and voting application, Voices.com team members can add, organize and discuss suggestions on how to improve the service. Colleagues vote up the best ideas and then they are assigned to the person who can "make it happen".
Voices.com encourages employees to pursue their dreams. 10 percent of the time employees are allowed to pursue their own high risk/high reward projects. Voices.com's social media efforts including Facebook Fan pages, split testing with Google Website Optimizer, user testing with UserTesting.com and FiveSecondTest.com or becoming a Salesforce Level II Administrator are all the result of 10 percent time being put to good use.
Creativity loves restraint.
Again, Voices.com keeps all of the employee-generated ideas streamlined towards the company's goals letting people explore but setting clear boundaries for that exploration.
Get users and usage – the money will follow.
Respect for community is of paramount importance. We encourage interaction design over simply making things look pretty.
Don't kill projects, morph them.
Voices.com doesn't waste ideas. Instead, we try to change and transform them into something the company finds useful.
