Technologies and Capabilities

A new generation of “Wisdom age” tools is emerging to help organisations cope with accelerating change and greater complexity. Change is accelerating. The world is becoming more complex. Human technological development is starting to outstrip the ability of our political and corporate decision-making systems to decide what we can and should do.

Organisations today are in a state of constant change as they adapt to new global realities. The ability to change, quickly and effectively, with committed and capable people, is the new strategic advantage.

Zing helps people co-create and wisely apply new knowledge. It is a tool that makes it easy for everyone to reliably use complex thinking, relating and facilitating methods for almost any difficult is- sue.

How is Zing Used? Organisations use Zing to provide the environ- ment, structure and processes necessary to help groups create new knowledge and apply that new knowledge faster. Those involved in community (however defined) use it to engage, consult, inform and converse with that community. Zing creates the opportunity to rapidly gather large volumes of ideas, information and knowledge on topics affecting the organisation or community. It can be used with groups
of any size and is not limited to inside locations.

Who Uses Zing? Government departments and agencies Local Authorities, Non-Government Organisations, Development organisa- tions, Industry, Business, Educational institutions including primary schools, secondary schools, universities

What do they use it for? Community capacity building; Community consultations and engagement; Long-term, Sustainable Planning; Preferred Futures; Organisational development; Change management; Strategic planning; Team building; Learning in teams; Planning for educational institution futures
