"To make knowledge productive, we will have to learn to see both forest and tree. We will have to learn to connect." Peter Drucker, 1993

beeblum can help you to allow diversity and thus open up complexity. You can explore connections, select and evaluate information and enable decision-making. 

When we work in networks, we have to learn to behave more situationally. In a connected world, diversity has become the most important resource. In order to use it effectively, gain as much insight as possible and generate new solutions to problems, it cannot be locked up in organizational hierarchies and control structures. Instead, one must allow the individual data to be meshed into knowledge and thus into a useful context. 

People must share their knowledge with others as a matter of course, to allow different perspectives on a topic and to encourage critical questioning. Thus, it is no longer enough to know something, it is essential to be able to communicate it. The interdisciplinary exchange of knowledge workers is what really matters in networks. It is the interface at which the most significant added value is created. 

In beeBlum it's not possible to communicate without a reference to a specific topic. To do so you create a so-called situation. There you describe what it is all about, add further information like pictures or attachments. Then you define the target groups and by this the participants. In beeBlum you don't communicate directly with people, but share information with other teams by creating posts. In contrast to a chat, posts represent closed information units. They can be organized within a situation without losing their context. They are particularly well suited for asynchronous and targeted communication.

Using an intelligent algorithm, beeBlum distributes the posts to the individual information streams of relevant recipients. Over time you will find valuable feedback and helpful reactions in your situation board, ordered by the different senders perpective. 

 

When complexity is opened up, it connects - people and their affairs, the new and the old, problems and their solutions. 

A Board in Kanban-style that communicates

Kanban boards are a practical tool to organize things. We believe they are also a perfect tool to structure communication. Therefore we have rethought the way of interacting with them. In beeBlum your board can do a lot more than just store information. You can use it to test hypotheses, get different perspectives or use it to distribute tasks to specific target groups and many more. In this way you can create new connections that would have been concealed within established patterns of thought and behavior. 

 

"(...) different perspectives drive innovation because you look at challenges from points of view that you would not have otherwise thought of. However, it is important that everyone can participate and have their say." Frederik Pferdt, Chief Evangelist Google

By changing the visibility of a column, you make it accessible to others. This way, colleagues who don't have direct access to the board can still contribute to your situation via their personal information stream. This works for individual experts, your entire organization and, if you want, even for the crowd. 

beeBlum does not only support text or soft facts (like group chats or instant messenger). By using (custom) criteria you can make soft factors measurable or even query specific data. 

Klarer Fokus

A situation forms the contextual framework for the information that is organised in it. Situations are managed by a group responsible for them, the Circle.

Perspective

A perspective corresponds to a view of the situation. You can define the type of external access and the ways in which you can interact with the information in this column.

Real-time

beeBlum was designed to be used by a large number of users and supports simultaneous work on the entire platform.

Criteria catalogue

Manage your own set of criteria. You can choose from different types and use voting mechanisms besides key figures and text.

Data model

Criteria help you to make information measurable. Combined with their context, they form a homogeneous data model that you can use in other tools.

Search

With the help of the search and sort function you can find posts easily and without effort. 

 

Organization in Circles

beecome the best team in the comb

Organizations must adapt their structures to the primary units in which the work is done today: The teams. 

 

In beeBlum teams organize themselves in circles. Circles represent a second hierarchical structure in the company to supplement the legally required organizational structure. Each Circle has a clear focus and is authorized to organize itself internally in such a way that it fulfils its purpose in the best possible way.

 

Only through linking the purpose, i.e. the competencies and the area of responsibility to a circle content and target-oriented communication becomes possible at all.

A better organizational design

In an exponential organization, the challenge is to determine exactly what decision makers - regardless of their company status - need to make good decisions and implement them effectively. One of the most important skills of successful companies is therefore to enable decisions to be made in appropriate circles. By analysing the people involved in the decision-making process and their relationship to the circle making the decision, it is possible to determine the distance between coordination and context. By correlating distance and speed depending on the decision categories, it is possible to gain valuable insights into the effectiveness of the individual circles. 

 

With beeBlum, an organisation is successively designed that can make and execute decisions better and faster than the competition. The result is what managers always try to achieve and yet so rarely achieve: more performance.

 

Attention is your most valuable resource and is almost always underrated. If tools control too much of it, it hinders your ability to do great things. Important communication should therefore only be done in real time in exceptional cases. Better are systems that allow each individual to get the job done exactly when it makes sense for them. Such asynchronous systems work even better if the individual contributions can be focused very closely on a specific topic or problem.

Your personal information stream

In beeBlum, an intelligent algorithm ensures that you only get the postings that are interesting for you in a stream of information tailored to your needs. Due to the pyramidal structure of the contributions in your stream, it is always clear what it is all about, what the actual problem is and how you can contribute to it. 

By evaluating suggestions, making assessments, adding missing information or making new proposals, you support your colleagues in a goal-oriented and efficient way. By simply scrolling, you can switch to the next opportunity. 

 

beeBlum is not a one-way trip. We will keep you posted whenever your contribution has been useful for someone else. This way you are much closer to the action and will be the first to know when your contribution has helped set something big on its way.

Contribution

You can rate and comment on relevant contributions and add missing information. You know the planned sales price? Simply enter it.

Swiping-System

By simply swiping to the left or right you indicate whether you like a post or not. If you swipe upwards, the next post will be shown.

Ideation

Innovations arise from the association of different information. If a post leads you to something new, you can capture it right away.

Artificial Intelligence

beeBlum makes sure that you get mainly relevant, but also some rather unfamiliar information. Because sometimes this is where the biggest opportunity can arise.

Buy-in

Through the constant exchange of information with the possibility to react, the identification with the company will be significantly increased. 

Gamification

Due to the possibility to constantly discover and interact with a variety of information, the use of beeBlum is much more fun than with conventional business software.

Trust makes all the difference

When employees say what they really think, companies and employees alike benefit from such a culture of trust. Google calls this psychological safety - and believes that this is the most important factor for the success of teams.

 

beeBlum creates an environment of trust and thus the necessary confidence. This way really everyone in the company will contribute much more than today. The idea behind it is ancient ("if only Siemens knew what it knew"), but its realization is cutting edge. 

bee the difference

beeBlum supports the decision-making process

One out of three people would like to get faster decisions. While three quarters of managers would like to make faster decisions, but cannot do so because of poorly prepared information. Most companies try to solve this challenge by providing more and more data. They invest massively in technologies for presenting and evaluating facts - and thus miss the core of the problem: supporting the process.

 

The information available on a problem determines our actions to a large extent. Due to the built-in diversity of analysis across different perspectives in beeBlum, we can open up complexity much better. Little stories, the posts and comments we share help us to understand coherences and make numbers, data and facts vivid and tangible.

On such an information basis it becomes easy to develop not only one but several alternative options for action. In order to compare your alternatives objectively you use individual criteria sets in beeBlum. The criteria values of your individual alternatives can be linked to information from the situation. This way you create a reference between assessments and information. Assessments become transparent and can be traced in the future. Since not all factors are usually equally important for your decision, you can adjust the relative weighting of the criteria to each other and see the effects on the evaluation of the individual alternatives directly. 

"Nature hath given men one tongue but two ears, that we may hear from others twice as much as we speak." -Epictetus

Information is useless if no action is performed in return. That's why beeBlum supports the work on different alternatives. An alternative represents an opportunity for action or a viable future. These are made up of a set of matching criteria. By binding these criteria with information from the underlying situation, a dynamic action model will be generated. For each of these criteria, the weighting can be adjusted individually and the effects on the model can be analysed. 

As a decision maker you will never again be confronted with badly prepared situations. Due to the pyramidal structure of the information provided, you can grasp facts much faster. You only look at details if you are really interested. You compare alternatives, weight criteria and look at the effects. Of course, you can also decide right away - or request additional criteria and opinions. 

Solution-orientation

By developing alternative options for action, beeBlum supports you in moving from a more problem-oriented to a solution-oriented approach.

Evaluation model

To agree on the relevant evaluation criteria is an underestimated but essential step in the goal-oriented analysis of the initial situation. 

Classification

Evaluation criteria can be dynamically weighted and the effects on the decision model can be analyzed.

Analysis

Alternatives are compared using the same set of criteria. By linking to information from a situation, a dynamic model is created.

Pyramidal information access

As a decision maker you navigate from the big picture to the details. This way you can grasp the essentials much faster.

Stop being so beesy. Just stick to the truly important stuff!

In the past, when we worked solely in offices and there was a clear division of tasks, we spent a lot of time on planning and coordination. We synchronized plans, allocated resources and - as soon as something unforeseen happened - threw everything away. Then we spent not only time replanning, but even more time justifying deviations from the plan. 

 

We no longer have this time any more. And, let's be honest, we actually never had it before...

 

In a modern working environment two parameters are sufficient to control tasks: Important and Urgent. And although this sounds revolutionary, Dwight D. Eisenhower's concept is over 60 years old.

bee focused!
