Our approach

Open and fearless collaboration!

Overcome social and psychological barriers

  • Production blocking: 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.

 

  • Social loafing: Take into account that the more participants, the lower the participation.

 

  • Zoom fatigue: Avoid overstimulation through exhausting video conferences and cluttered, confusing whiteboards.

 

  • Fear of criticism: Anonymity takes away the uncertainty for the participants to think about how others might judge their ideas.

 

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

 

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

Change the way of team collaboration

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

Instead of scheduling more and more meetings, it is advisable to try out more goal-oriented ways of collaboration and decision-making. Focus on results, not chit-chat!

IdeaClouds is based on more than 10 years of research on teamwork and creativity support. IdeaClouds helps teams to increase participation and facilitate decision making.

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.

3.

Get results and discuss
