In order to develop the ability to be competitive in considering rapidly growing global market and enormously changing in technology, organizations are looking for up-to-date procedures to respond to all these transformations. Being smart and innovative is actually the most significant pillars of successful organization strategies. In other words, organizations need to encourage learning, manage knowledge and create innovative ideas. A major issue of creative ideation is improving the quality of the ideas generated. In this paper, we propose a semantic recommender engine for idea generation in order to assist organizations to improve their ways of generating new ideas. Through this novel system, innovation actors will be able to consider new perspectives, make new connections, think differently and thus produce new promising ideas. We initially introduce the concept behind a smart organization, explore the idea generation in such organizations and examine the role of recommender systems for managing this stage and identifying breakthrough ideas. Next, we present the context of design, the conceptual architecture of the suggested system and finally expand the workflow of semantic similarity matching of ideas with a focus on the key components of the semantic recommendation engine.
