I recently had the opportunity to speak at an event where the attendee list was mostly comprised of change agents working in large enterprise organizations. The highlight of the evening for me was when one of the participants asked what arguments she should use to convince her stakeholders to use Qvest.
I was just about to respond when it struck me that I was in a room full of people supremely qualified to answer that exact question - so I passed the baton on to the other participants, who described that Qvest:
Accelerates the change process, saving the company time and money
Provides unfiltered access to what matters to employees
Has a better participation rate and thus creates greater engagement and ownership than surveys
Unleashes the skill and knowledge that is already present in the organization
Allows everyone to contribute - in contrast to the current situation where many feel that they are not invited to the "change party"
Makes informal knowledge transparent and accessible to everyone
Uncovers potential risks
Makes it legitimate for employees to discuss important strategic issues with each other (peer-to-peer)
Is in line with the movement towards senior leaders recognizing that they do not know everything and therefore do not need to know all the questions and answers
Man, I'm glad I didn't answer!
