Waggl, a technology platform that surfaces and distills real-time insights from groups of people, today announced that it has partnered with Agility Consulting, the world’s premier consulting firm helping global leaders and organizations adapt and thrive in a VUCA (Volatile, Uncertain, Complex, and Ambiguous) World. Under terms of the partnership, Agility Consulting will integrate its deep body of knowledge about leadership, team and organizational agility into Waggl’s innovative real-time listening platform, which enables fast, frequent, focused dialogue on virtually any enterprise topic.
Agility Consulting consults, coaches and trains businesses to become more Focused, Fast and Flexible by providing practical tools to help them respond better and faster at enterprise, team and individual levels. With more than 15 years of research and practical experience, Agility Consulting has developed the only Agility Framework based on five critical drivers required for organizations to be capable of successfully navigating change: Anticipate Change, Generate Confidence, Initiate Action, Liberate Thinking, Evaluate Results (AGILE). When applied actively across three enterprise domains (people, processes, and technology) The AGILE Model® creates focused, fast, and flexible organizations poised for success in a world filled with volatility, uncertainty, complexity and ambiguity, as shared in the book, Focused, Fast & Flexible: Creating Agility Advantage in a VUCA World, authored by Agility Consulting Principals, Dr. Nick Horney and Tom O’Shea.
Waggl is designed to help organizations become more agile by collecting and distilling anonymous, real-time feedback from employees. Unlike traditional survey and polling platforms, Waggl creates a virtual dialogue with participants by asking open-ended questions where favorite responses can be ‘voted up.’ The platform provides a variety of templates for users to cultivate feedback, in only a few clicks. By integrating Agility Consulting’s world class IP into Waggl’s platform, enterprise clients of both organizations will now be able to subscribe to a library of suggested content that can be used to dive deep into the characteristics that comprise the AGILE model. Enterprises can choose an area of focus to explore, and gain immediate access to lists of suggested topics and questions, then use Waggl to conduct pulse surveys to groups of employees. Users can set up and send pulses in minutes, and results are available immediately to administrators and participants in the form of easily digestible infographics.
“In today’s turbulent business environment, success demands agility,” said Dr. Nick Horney, Founder and Principal of Agility Consulting. “Agility Consulting’s mission is to help business leaders access the tools they need to be effective, and Waggl’s listening platform is one of the very best we’ve ever come across. Integrating our AGILE Model into their platform will allow our clients to apply the concepts and start seeing results in real time. This is a smart and practical way for enterprises to continue moving forward, thriving, and staying ahead of the curve.”
“Waggl believes that the wisdom is in the system, and we are committed to helping organizations unlock their best insights by improving the lines of communication with the people who are closest to the work – their employees,” said Michael Papay, CEO, Waggl. “We’re thrilled to collaborate with leaders like Agility Consulting, who have developed a deep understanding and a broad base of knowledge on the factors required to achieve success in the age of digital disruption. With the help of these partners, we will build out an open content exchange ecosystem that will help our clients and theirs to make the best use of our listening platform to meet specific objectives."
Waggl is the most human way for organizations to crowdsource feedback. Named after the dance that bees do in a hive to transmit important information very quickly, Waggl lives at the intersection of two organizational realities: Companies want an engaged workforce and employees want to know that their opinions count. Waggl goes beyond the traditional survey by offering an extremely easy way to listen to many voices at once within an organization for the purpose of making it better. Waggl’s real-time listening platform creates a transparent, authentic two-way dialogue that gives people a voice, distills insights, and unites organizations through purpose. With a highly seasoned management team and a Board including esteemed executives from Glassdoor, Success Factors, and Coupa, Waggl is an innovative industry leader helping companies of all sizes to succeed by building a listening culture.
