Much of Intentional Futures’ work centers around our ability to collect and synthesize qualitative and quantitative information from a variety of sources, and weave it into a story that provokes our clients into a different way of thinking.
Oftentimes this kind of survey work is outsourced to third-party models, but at iF we recognize the value of giving our clients the agency to be active participants and owners in the work we do with them. Thus, inspired by a New York Times interactive model and created by the iF Design and Product team, Hilo was born: iF’s own tailor-made survey tool designed for workshop facilitation and equipped with benchmarks for team alignment.
In essence, Hilo helps teams align their thinking to solve an ever growing list of strategic problems while ensuring everyone’s voice is heard.
With the tool, users are able to:
- Create a simple presentation with 11 different question types
- Use our workshop builder to guide participants through a series of prompts
- Present results back to stakeholders in our presentation mode, thus reducing hassle and time spent reaching a synthesis
- Build insights on participants with a data export
- Save time and templatize work for quick reuse
Our vision for Hilo’s implementation includes adoption by all iFsters and inclusion in all client work where applicable.
In a recent all-company Huddle, the design team demoed the latest version of the product with a survey of iFsters’ personal preferences and personality traits. The following charts were created using the results of the Hilo survey:
When put into practice for our clients, Hilo will broaden participation, deepen exploration and accelerate progress towards great thinking, while fostering a strong sense of conviction from all stakeholders. With the buy-in created by Hilo’s powerful collaboration, our clients can accomplish better work faster that lasts and makes a difference.
