Produce actionable ideas
Dialogue is a great tool for allowing your community to suggest, rate, and comment on ideas in a collaborative way. This helps to identify and prioritise the best and most important areas to focus on. Sourcing innovative new ideas to solve both simple as well as complex challenges can be incredibly powerful.
Dialogue may be used to target specific groups, such as citizens’ panels and employee groups to work towards more niche, technical or even private challenges. Challenges are be framed around very specific areas thereby enabling users to discuss, rate and input around highly structured topics.
Use Dialogue for:

Giving communities a say in how budgets are spent on projects that affect them is a growing trend. Dialogue has been used by local governments who want to involve their communities in generating or comparing spending plans, allowing participants to rate and comment on their relative quality.
