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 based across the globe. She needed to get these people 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 bring executives together virtually she realized the product she wanted didn’t exist and Powernoodle was born. She designed the software drawing on her experience working with many different, often diverse groups working 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.
Powernoodle leverages the diversity within an organization, encouraging creative solutions that are only possible when everyone involved feels comfortable participating. Using a step-by-step approach, Powernoodle effectively guides a project and keeps it on track while eliminating barriers like physical distance. It also helps guide those who are new to leading team interactions while acting as a powerful tool for professional facilitators and consultants. Powernoodle is available worldwide and allows a team to work in real time to make decisions or to work asynchronously depending on team members’ availability and schedules.
