We start by asking, “What’s the problem?” and listening to each point of view, learning what each stakeholder knows. We facilitate constructive conflict to create statements with words that communicate clear intent and lead to the consensus from all participants.
The result is hard to have conversations that get to the real issues using IdeaScale, the world’s leading innovation management platform. Moderated to maintain focus, and managed to stay on schedule, activities are measured to identify who signed up and who leaned in.
The result is a 67% higher rate of active participants who understand the process, have the individual confidence to fully participate, and are prepared to move forward together.
Once approved, the Problem Statement becomes a true North Star, guiding all future work, answering “is what we are about to do bringing us closer to, or farther away from our goals?”
