Ideas change the world
But ideas are cheap
. You don't need more ideas; you need to know which ideas are the ones worth implementing.
With limited resources, implementation is everything
, so it must be based on solid ideas-- those which are valid, relevant, resilient.
You do not need yet another tired meeting or conference call.Resilient ideas are your organization's largest untapped resource.
You want to harness the collective wisdom of your employees, students, or community, and you know that regular, online comments won't get you where you want to be
; you need to get deeper.
We're not talking about a pleasant water-cooler chat about your boss' new ginger-chicken salad recipe; we are talking about the ability to create structured, purposeful, efficient, and in-depth deliberation
on the most complex challenges that your organization faces.
Some conversations are worth taking the time to do right, and that requires a solid engagement plan and the right collaboration tools
With AthenaBridge software, you'll find out which ideas have the most support and most importantly, you will find those ideas which are most resilient to opposing arguments
. This helps you reduce risk and implement the right ideas the first time around
. Measure twice; cut once.
Enable your participants to share a common operational picture of how each other's ideas interrelate. See the common ground and areas of disagreement in color. Uncover key insights that were previously out of reach.
Through the peer-to-peer participation, opinion leaders will surface
, giving you even more insight into your audience.
Save time. Make better decisions faster. Engage and inspire.
Few people think of strategic planning as fun and engaging, but those words aptly describe the AthenaBridge experience. The simplicity of the software enabled our board members to mind-map ideas, add notions, build on one another’s thoughts, and vote, without missing a beat at work. Then, by the time we convened our formal planning process, we had already covered a lot of ground, which made far better use of our face-to-face time—an absolute must for a board whose members are all over the U.S.

In looking for a variety of enrichment programs to provide critical thinking skills for our middle school students, we stumbled upon your website. I am so thrilled that I have found a resource to provide 1000 middle school students with an opportunity to extend and enrich their thinking by using your resource to connect with other students outside of their campus and community. Thank you for providing public schools with an important resource to help our students develop important lifelong skills and learn beyond the classrooms.
