Digital platforms for e-learning, communication or collaboration have their value in transmitting information and/or knowledge. Many companies have been able to solve their pressing problems of sharing through such systems. Yet the mere transfer of knowledge and information is not enough to be successful in today’s dynamic, complex markets.
For that, organizations need to tap into the knowledge, experience, skills and creative potential of all their people, and take teamwork to a new level: In order to trigger more serious change, the first step is to provide teams and the whole community within the organization (not just its individuals!) with a constructive understanding of the system in which they operate. Not just “a few chosen ones”, but everyone. All at the same time. That is precisely what disqourse achieves. Imagine an organization in which all groups & teams develop & reflect simultaneously, on a higher level, while sharing their views and understandings of organizational challenges. Imagine learning to be happening within teams and the entire organization, not just to certain managers or individuals. This is achieved through pit unique “didactics”, or group learning method.
Disqourse is designed as an alternative to common e-learning, knowledge management and development platforms: It is a digital space where discourse in and between groups is encouraged – making use of carefully selected, reflection-ready content. Disqourse creates more than just knowledge. It employs thinking tools that encourage awareness, insight and critical thinking. Be prepared to be surprised.
