What We Do

Select a Solution

Prioritize Portfolios & Backlogs

Prioritization may not always be fun, but knowing what initiatives to pursue when is crucial for business success. And with our proprietary collaboration game engine and services, you’ll be able to prioritize faster, gain true engagement and broader buy-in, and move from decision to action faster. Even if your organization is distributed by time and place.

Case Study

Develop & Align Strategy

Your company’s success is driven by its strategic vision—ensuring product lines, services and initiatives align with changing market demand. But moving quickly means accessing knowledge that you only get from business leaders on the front lines. Conteneo’s proprietary SaaS software and service offerings enable companies to tap into the wisdom of middle management, allowing collaboration across time zones and divisions to define and execute strategies that take advantage of emerging trends and unmet opportunities.

Case Study

“We gained valuable insight into how an international customer interacts with our products — from the web to software purchase/download to documentation. Using games was a fun way of extracting serious ideas and it allowed people to be more creative and free in their thinking.” –Janice Campbell, Adobe
