Spaces and tools

The steps to success

Process designer

XLeap is all-purpose facilitation software featuring highly specialised workspaces.

In the Process designer tool, you map your methodology to a sequence of specifically tooled workspaces and configure them for the task at hand.

To get facts, opinions, or ideas, add a Brainstorm space and ask your question. Then add a Rating sheet to prioritize a shortlist. Follow that up with a DeepDive to drill into the why and what. And so on.

Ideas, opinions, facts

Brainstorm space

If you need to know what is possible or what's going on or what people think, ask the Brainstorm question, and ideas, opinions, and facts will come flying in.

Contributions can be anonymous, or tagged by team, or give the name of the contributor.

Contributions are immediately visible to all, triggering new ideas. Contributions can be commented upon, organized in folders, marked with sticky dots and exported to Word or Excel.

Structured assessment - Clear priorities

Rating sheet

Rating lets you and your group

  1. Establish priorities
  2. Assess ideas, facts or opinions
  3. See where you agree and where you do not

Choose among rating methods 'Budget allocation', 'Estimate', Multiple selection', Numeric scale' or 'Rank order'.

Rate on one or multiple criteria.

Use team comparison to see whether dissent runs, for instance, between or across departments.

Rating results tables

The very moment the Rating is closed you'll know

  1. What are the top-scoring items?
  2. What is irrelevant for this purpose or decision?
  3. Where do we (dis)agree?

Even complex multi-criteria analysis can be done in real time, complete with computed indicator values, sensitivity analysis, and team comparison.

EXPLORE RESULTS TABLES

Easy real-time analysis

Rating results chart

Results charts facilitate joint analysis in the meeting.

  1. What are the tradeoffs between criteria?
  2. Do the 'teams' differ in their assessments?
  3. Are there 'dominant' choices?

It is possible to analyze ratings graphically on up to 3 criteria with team comparisons.

Why? How exactly?

DeepDive space

In the DeepDive space you can drill into or develop one or several topics. For instance, why certain facts are important. Or which assumptions cause differences of opinion. Or how exactly one should do 'it'.

Participants contribute anonymously or tagged 'by team' or named. Freestyle or structured by prompts.

Nobody has to wait their turn. Participants contribute where they have most to say. This setup is many times faster and more productive than a conventional oral 'one at a time' discussion.

Inform, engage

Presentation space

Presentation is for bringing across concepts or facts while engaging the audience to give honest feedback.

Presentation is by slide show or screen share. Feedback can be anonymous, tagged 'by team' or named. Participants feel valued. Presenters know how their message lands.

If it is important that feedback covers certain aspects, prompts can ask for specific topics or issues.

Conferencing

The XLeap conference is as simple as it can be. Share your camera, or microphone. No hassle about 'downloads', 'plug-ins' or 'add-ons'.

XLeap's technology partner Dolby takes care of sound and video quality.

In the workspaces, the conference moves descreetly into the background, letting participants focus on the matter at hand, and getting the outcomes you need.

EXPLORE CONFERENCING

Push-button documentation

Session report

XLeap workspaces are self-documenting: This means that you can produce a fully formatted Word report with the push of a button.

In the Report maker tool, you specify what is included in that version of the report, for example, a management summary for the sponsor.

Or you can save content to your hard drive disk, for instance, a Rating results table or a sorted list of ideas for further processing in Excel.
