Our approach

Open and fearless teamwork

Less talking, more participation

Most meetings don’t produce useful results. Someone talks all the time. The others don’t get a chance to speak. In the end, one dominant person alone makes the decision for the entire team. Good results look different…

A necessary condition for successful group decision-making is a high degree of participation. Participants should be enabled to easily contribute their own ideas and evaluations at any time.

Focus on the content, not the tool

Refrain from overloaded, complicated tools that attract all the attention and are only understood by a few employees. Instead, rely on foolproof and goal-oriented ways of collaboration to achieve better results faster.

IdeaClouds helps teams increase participation and reduce distractions through lightweight, real-time collaboration.

Overcome social and psychological barriers

IdeaClouds’ collaboration concept is based on more than 10 years of research on teamwork and creativity support. It improves collaboration by helping you overcome the biggest barriers in meetings:

Let the participants contribute ideas in writing and in parallel. Otherwise, participants have to wait to get a word because not everyone can speak at the same time.

Take into account that the more participants, the lower the participation.

Avoid overstimulation through exhausting video conferences and cluttered, confusing whiteboards.

Anonymity takes away the uncertainty for the participants to think about how others might judge their ideas.

Premature criticism should be avoided at all costs. It inhibits the participants and destroys creativity.

Dot voting is not a good way to evaluate ideas because you can see others’ votes. This enables mutual influence.

How it works

Don’t be busy. Be productive!

1.

Contribute silently

Collect, group and categorize the ideas of your team. Ideas can be contributed anonymously. 

Every idea counts. No one has to be afraid of criticism.

2.

Evaluate in private

Each participant can evaluate the ideas in a private workspace as in a democratic election.

The participants are protected from influences and biases.
