Dialogs allow you to create conversational flows that can be sent out to other users. Dialog participants can answer the dialog in preferred tool (4straction, Microsoft Teams* or WhatsApp*) making them ideal for collecting answers and feedback from a large amount of people. Dialogs are also easily repeatable allowing systematic collection of data. Once everyone has answered, the results are summarized by the tool and can be shared forward similar to workshop results.
Dialogs are a versatile tool for any strategic facilitator and they can be used for e.g.
- OKR retrospectives
- Strategic objective evaluation
- Gathering initiatives
- Supporting individuals in their strategy work
- Pinpointing issues, pain points or bottlenecks in current processes
Articles in this category help you master the basics of Dialogs. The first article describes how you can create a structure for a dialog or "dialog flow" which is done in the dialog template. The flow consists of different types of elements (questions, messages etc.) that are combined into one flowchart-type flow. The second article describes how you can set your dialog live after the flow is ready. This is done by creating a dialog from the template with preferred participants and creating the first batch. The third article focuses on the results; how you can close the batch and share the results forward.
