Rapidly evaluate ideas and issues in business meetings and focus
Opinions are important, and gathering and taking note of opinions
rapidly is not always easy without a good tool to help. Impact
Explorer allows you to gather a group of people, from 3 to 500 in
size, and find out what they feel about a subject. Whether the group
are experts in your organization, your customers, or a management
team, you can rapidly put together a list of topics and use the
various tools to find out valuable information.
Impact Explorer™ can be used for simple data gathering where the
results are not displayed, or it can be used as a focus for debate
and discussion. In the latter mode, you can identify disagreements
amongst the participants, and then discuss them to gain a better
understanding of the situation. Impact Explorer™ is designed to be
flexible – you can use it for impromptu meetings, or for fully
pre-prepared formal workshops. It can integrate with other tools
like PowerPoint® and Decision Explorer® for seamless operation, and
can use data from a variety of sources including disk and clipboard.
It doesn’t get in the way when facilitating a workshop – you do not
have to remember to save results because it does that for you
automatically. At the end of the workshop, you can generate a report
with the results using Microsoft® Word or Excel, saving you time
typing the data in again.
The key voting software tools
Question and Answer
Q & A mode allows you to get feedback in a very flexible
multiple-choice format. You specify the “question” and the response
choices that users can select from. While a warm-up quiz is an
obvious application, this is useful for gathering opinions such as
which brand participants perceive as the market leader.
Matrix mode is used for two-dimensional assessments of elements.
This is particularly useful when considering issues such as project
risk/reward, cost/benefit, probability/impact, investment (of time,
money, man-power, emotion etc.) / value added; stability /
Voting mode is used to obtain opinions using a range of values
on a number of elements. For example, how much resource should be
allocated to possible activities. You can use various scales, for
example, 1 to 10, A to E, yes/ no.
Ranking mode is used to obtain first, second etc. preferences
from a list of options. For example, the order in which possible
activities should be done.
Further details of the tools in Impact Explorer™ can be found in the
Impact Explorer User’s Manual.
In addition to the main facilities, Impact Explorer™ packs in a
number of facilities that make your life as a facilitator much
easier. These keep with the theme of quick and impromptu capability
while allowing for more formally structured workshops too. Details
of the spell check, PowerPoint integration, Agenda facility, Word
document building and demonstration mode are detailed here.
