How many times have you been in a brainstorming workshop where the time is spent in never-ending sticky notes exercises? I’ve lost the count.
Have you noticed that some introverts ended up saying nothing as the alfa persons took it over again? Same people taking over and repeating themselves in workshop after a workshop.
Was the result the workshop a prioritized list of ideas? I bet it wasn’t. I bet that it was a pile of post-its that started to gather dust after the workshop.
It can get better. Some of Innoduel’s customers have fallen in love with Innoduel after utilizing sticky notes for decades and below you will find five good reasons for it.
1) Up to 90% time reduction in boring post-processing time.
The result of using Innoduel is always a digital ranking list of all ideas / answer proposals. Nobody needs to interpret words written in post-its anymore as the users post their ideas directly in digital format. It is a digitalization of the ancient sticky notes method.
2) Up to 100% time reduction during the idea ranking phase.
With Innoduel the ideation and idea ranking happens simultaneously. Idea ranking is typically the most time-consuming and most unpredictable phase of workshops. Yet, without the ranking you can neither make decisions nor take actions. With Innoduel the saved time can be used to discuss about the result, not making of it! Getting the clear results and discussing them is how you engage your people and get them aligned to common goals.
3) Higher participation rate.
Innoduel can be used for brainstorming even with geographically separated teams. This helps in getting more people to participate. Innoduel is gamified and it supports people to think more positively and provide more ideas. Digital co-creation is seen as an interesting new method that is not only worth using, but fun as well
4) Easier workshop preparation.
Innoduel is a "productized" method for co-creating and brainstorming. It helps the facilitator to structure the session better and create a schedule that has less uncertainties.
5) You can find some hidden gems that used to be… well, hidden!
Comment from an Introvert: "Finally I have time to discreetly think and post my own proposals!". Innoduel lets everybody to spend quality time with their own thoughts and then, when the time is right post their brilliant ideas.
When next time you are running a brainstorming workshop, instead of using post-its use Innoduel. I promise you will like it! And the participants like it too. And, it doesn’t cost a dime.
