Innovation processes and idea competitions in companies differ in one important point: While ideas in the innovation and idea management process reach different levels at different times, they usually reach these levels simultaneously in idea competitions and innovation challenges.

Ideas submitted to ideas competitions usually change their status at the same time:
- ideas are submitted within the first week,
- they are commented on and discussed in the second week,
- and evaluated in the third week.
