Sometimes even good ideas are left not implemented. They may need
other ideas, that work like extra boosters to make things happen.
A booster idea is an idea that lowers the risk, and makes people motivated to
work on ideas. Anything from ideas for phone conversation plots, mail
using specific issue-trackers, to well-targeted monetary
injections may be ideas of this kind.
Booster ideas can then be attached to existing ideas, to make them fly.

(Example idea that inspired this.) [Mindey, May 05 2019]
||Spam may be an idea on its own?

texts can be innovative with relevant audiences in mind.
||Giving you money may be an idea on its own?
||These are the found in the oft-overlooked, mundane "soup" of ideas that are there for the
scooping, a deft implementation of which is liable to supply a good few years' worth of
work. Working on these is rarely supported directly by management, but they don't realise
that if you come up with a general method for solving annoying-problems x, y and z - none
of which pose any challenge other than being tedious in themselves - that together they
enable a general solution to some YETI problem, the solution for which is considered
impossible, abominable, or both.
