The tacit knowledge needed to synthesize, evaluate, compare and make decisions. Tacit knowledge draws on know-how, experience, instinct, insight, observation, connecting the dots, values, assumptions and beliefs.
Technology-driven data analysis using information stored in databases. Includes historical and projected data such as costs, benefits, performance, and trends. The best decisions are made by combining traditional Business Intelligence with Stakeholder Intelligence.
We prioritize and manage a number of strategic solution areas where Stakeholder Intelligence is critical to achieving an organization’s objectives:
Powernoodle's Stakeholder Intelligence solutions are built upon a proven cloud software platform, with stakeholder engagement best practices embedded into the solution in the form of an easy-to-use, process-light but structured approach that guides you to the outcomes you need.
Our solutions build trust through candor which drives deeper buy-in and alignment across the organization. Busy subject-matter-experts engage in short bursts of 15 minutes or less when it is convenient for them, therefore increasing their contributions.
We increase confidence by ensuring the objective consideration of more relevant factors when assessing ideas, projects or strategies. We help you reduce risk by minimizing the chance you are missing something important in the review.
Solution analytics focus your conversations by presenting the distribution of evaluations (identifying where there is consensus, confusion or outliers) to ignite much deeper conversation. Ruthless prioritization is the result and provides stakeholder groups the license to kill low value ideas.
A living legacy for decisions through a transparent audit trail provides your organization a historical view of the decisions and conversations that took place throughout the process.
Organizations adapt and respond to changes in direction quickly enabling faster speed-to-market. Tapping into the critical thinking skills of stakeholders in evaluating alternatives increases buy-in and the speed of transformation.
Powernoodle is the brainchild of its CEO Deb Krizmanich. She was leading an extremely challenging strategic project for a large technology company involving senior executives from multiple divisions across the globe. Deb needed to get these stakeholders together in the same room for two days to develop strategies and make decisions. After two months of trying to corral everyone in the same place at the same time her frustration level was hitting new highs.
After searching for software that would allow her to meaningfully engage busy stakeholders virtually she realized the product she wanted didn't exist and Powernoodle was born. She designed the platform drawing on her experience working with many different, often diverse groups striving to achieve towards common goals. Co-founder Frank Erschen joined her during the first year. When he saw the alpha product he quickly realized it was a product he wished he had throughout his career, and he became part of Powernoodle. The amazingly creative, collaborative, dedicated and insightful Powernoodle team has since taken the platform to new levels and many new markets.
Powernoodle leverages stakeholder diversity, encouraging creative solutions that are only possible when everyone involved feels comfortable participating. Using a step-by-step approach, Powernoodle effectively guides a decision process and keeps it on track while eliminating "easy" barriers like physical distance and really tough, complex ones like differences in personality, gender, generations, work styles, and culture. It also helps guide those who are new to leading stakeholder engagements while acting as a powerful tool for internal and external facilitators and consultants. Powernoodle is available in the cloud and enables organizations to work in real time to make decisions or to work asynchronously depending on team members' availability and schedules.
