Participants work together to place ideas on the canvas. Spot trends by analyzing data from multiple forums.

Alignment and buy-in are created as participants debate the merits of funding items and reach agreement on those items that are truly most important.

Collaboration at Scale

Large organizations need to engage hundreds to thousands of stakeholders and employees to accelerate decision-making and build alignment. Weave galas make this a breeze! Simply schedule your gala, share a single URL with all participants, and let the Weave scheduling bot seamlessly create dozens, hundreds, or even thousands of forums based on the forum guest list.
