The idea of Flipview was born from the founder being stuck in traffic and staring at the dashboard of his classic car and musing over how long it would take to type up interview notes and workshop results.
Wouldn't it be great if you could quickly canvas an organisation for ideas and risks and report instantly? Wouldn't it be great to have something other than powerpoint or excel?!
At its core, Flipview is all about harnessing an organisation's talent to help make the most of opportunities and to mitigate its risks. Central to this is a unique workflow and an engaging dashboard.
All too often aggregating information to feed strategy planning and risk consumes a lot of resource. Workshops and strategy off-sites can be of limited value as those attending might not have the courage to contribute or have been given little time to reflect. The process of converting flipcharts and stickies into some form of strategy document is often a cumbersome process. By the time people have the final “document”, it is out of date and everyone’s focus has shifted to Business As Usual. The strategy or risk document gets put in the drawer. Sounds familiar?
Flipview aims to provide a fast and effective way to build real time dashboards and reporting of an organisation's risks and strategy. Survey information automatically feeds workshop modules, which in turn automatically feed dashboard reporting.
More recently, as more companies have used Flipview for strategy to action, additional functionality has been added in the areas of project and performance management (Gantt Charts, task lists and OKRs).
