Pros: We liked the ease of usability and the way we could customize the platform for our needs. We also really appreciated the excellent assistance we received from your team - she is a great ambassador for Powernoodle! This tool helped us to ignite candid conversations in our community and then vet them in a safe space. This helped to minimize biases associated with working with different ages, cultures, genders, backgrounds etc.

Cons: Perhaps the only thing I'd add would be that it would have been nice to include our rating question along with the questions for the post event survey.

It's a Powernoodle World!

Comments: Shaping new goals? a sound strategic plan? a viable funding strategy? We had the challenge of re-shaping and articulating our 40-year old mission and goals to reach a whole new generation of emerging leaders. How does a company/organisation that is re-tooling for global reach, successfully elicit the best ideas from and for all its stakeholders? I highly recommend Powernoodle.com because of the 1) User-friendly software with effective tools facilitators utilise seamlessly to guide participants in moving from ideas to actions 2) Opportunity to work on one's own time, within reasonable time-frames, to think through and express ideas. I particularly like working alone as a first step as well as at appropriate moments throughout the process. 3) Ideas/suggestions posted anonymously. Such a great way to get maximum input from individuals; great vehicle for those who are less apt to speak up in groups but who may have some excellent ideas 4) Availability of Powernoodle support services 24/7 5) Recognition of the value of each stakeholder's suggestions. All ideas are organised, saved, and accessible for current and future reference. Best of all, the gratification of having concise and specific outcomes/action steps in a very reasonable amount of time as opposed to traditional approaches that required setting weekly meetings often over months to accomplish much less.

Pros: Of all the tools like mapping and small group teamwork; of whiteboard or post-it results; of well-intended brainstorming sessions with facilitators' reports that never get read -- Of all of the above in my many years of participating in retreats, seminars, etc., I am happy to state, unequivocally, that Powernoodle.com absolutely yields the best results for successful goal setting, strategic planning, shaping funding priorities, and you don't even have to "leave home" to participate! I was a less-than-enthusiastic participant at the outset. After one session, I became a total convert to this process and am already seeing its worth -- in action.

Recommendations to other buyers: Whether your company employs 10, 100 or several hundred -- I encourage you to consider Powernoodle services to maximise the success of your organisation/business. If you don't want to waste your colleagues' time; if you really want the most tangible outcomes--use powernoodle!

Comments: I cannot think of single client from every sector around the globe who I¿ve advised over four decades who would not benefit immensely from Powernoodle¿s truly extraordinary strength in engaging your stakeholders from every corner of the world to solve your complex problems. As a longtime advocate of actively engaging stakeholders, I recently worked with Powernoodle to solve a complex business problem for a global initiative with a team of people from different continents and from multiple disciplines. It¿s simply the most powerful platform I have ever encountered to ignite conversations around transformation with solid buy-in from stakeholders. Powernoodle¿s scientifically-based fantastically facilitated process truly ensured deep levels of commitment from the broadest base of my stakeholders because it actively involved all of us to focus collectively ¿ however, separated we were by geography ¿ on designing desired outcomes. Nadine B. Hack, CEO, beCause Global Consulting, www.because.net | Creator, Strategic Relational Engagement¿

Pros: It simplified the age-old problem of creating a shared understanding about and buy-in to designing plans that accurately took into account what will be the priority actions and the amount of time for each of our team members to deliver the results we want. It allowed us each to work on our own time (in widely varying time zones) to anonymously generate a set of ideas, comment on the ideas posted by others so that everyone could honestly analyse without fear of being judged. This liberated an amazingly creative process: far better than brainstorming. While we¿re still in the early stages, we have been able to distill in a remarkably fast time frame (roughly a month) exactly what are the key value propositions we offer with this new initiative and how we will roll out executing against the benefits we know our clients will receive. The Powernoodle facilitator adapted to our unique style of working, while also pushing us to go beyond our comfort zone and explore other methodologies that were extremely beneficial. They also asked provocative questions that enabled us to envision what we hadn't been able to.

Cons: It took us a bit of time to get used to a new process of systematically approaching a challenge. But, the facilitator responded quickly to concerns any member of our team raised with clear guidance.

Comments: I¿ve used Powernoodle for risk assessment and risk prioritization. The app¿s use of smart anonymity and proven neuroscience findings makes it very effective at reducing common cognitive biases (e.g., groupthink, anchoring bias, confirmation bias, halo effect, an illusion of control, etc.) that plague most risk assessments. It also enables me to bring more of the right people into the decision-making process which increases the diversity of perspectives represented. As a result, when my clients use Powernoodle, they achieve more fulsome and robust risk assessments compared to using workshops and spreadsheets alone. I find Powernoodle to be particularly useful in helping executive teams to quickly and easily rank their risks and to prioritize which risks merit more management attention and resources. Best of all, because everyone feels their voice has been heard, there is much higher confidence and buy-in to the ultimate decisions.

Pros: I find it easy to use. The customer support is fantastic. My clients find it stimulates more meaningful conversations which create a deeper understanding of the risks they face.

Cons: It requires a mindset shift in how you think about accomplishing decision-making, i.e., adding asynchronous sessions into the mix of how stakeholder knowledge is gathered. But it's so worth it because of what can be achieved when you are no longer tethered to meetings as the only venue for conversation. When people can do some of the work on their own, you end up with better stakeholder data, and shorter, more effective meetings.

Recommendations to other buyers: Try it on something simple but don't shy away from the contentious. You'll be amazed at how quickly and easily your team can make real decisions about thorny issues.

Comments: In the past two years I have participated in over 50 community stakeholder "town hall" events involving hundreds of participants. The Powernoodle platform has consistently delivered value, impact and outcomes. It is simple, scalable and useful. I recommend that you try it in your next community meeting.

Comments: There are so many applications limited only by your imagination. An important application I used it for was a brainstorming session of 40 comunity leaders who were geographically spread out and had limited time. Keeping the politics out of the session and engaging the under 35 crowd was important. We kept the session open 2 weeks so that they could log in when they could, add their ideas and comment on others. A minor application - our work space - repainting reception, halls and offices shared by several businesses- voted on colour schemes put forth by designer.

Highly recommend this tool

Comments: Used Powernoodle to facilitate a broad community-based collaboration to identify opportunities and strategies to help shape future economic development initiatives. Powernoodle's help resources and weekly live web-based training were excellent, and set us up well to take full advantage of the tool; minimal investment of time to figure out how to use it; major bonus that it supports both real time and asynchronous brainstorming. Must say, Powernoodle staff were AMAZING and very supportive. Highly recommend this tool.
