Abstract

In this paper we discuss how users may be involved in the ideation phase of innovation. The study compares the use of a blog and three future workshops (students, employees and a mix of the two) in a library. Our
study shows that the blog is efficient in giving the users voice whereas the mixed workshop method (involving users and employees) is especially good at qualifying and further developing ideas. The findings suggest that methods for involving users in ideation should be carefully selected and
combined to achieve optimum benefits and avoid potential disadvantages.
