Some studies report that only 2-3% of ideas in a typical suggestion box system are implemented. There are lots of reasons why this might happen: no one was reviewing the ideas, good ideas weren’t visible to other advocates who might have supported them, there was no way to track the ideas once they were in the system, etc. These problems are common to numerous feedback programs that lack scalability, transparency, and collaborative features.
