Better COMPREHENSION in Information Intensive Situations
SmartWisdom for Business
Working with others is a key part of day-to-day business life, much of which takes place in a group or one to one meetings. It is, therefore, crucial to be able to engage in and develop relationships at the same time as managing the information that is being shared, either by trying to remember it or write it down. This needs to be done simultaneously, and we should be able to take information overload in our stride. The problem is, we have not been given the tools to do this. If we just listen, we are greatly restricted by our memory of not only the facts but also any questions or ideas we might have: these are difficult to recall, even after just a few minutes. If we take notes it is easy to get to a point where we feel like we are playing catch up. We’re on the back foot or realise we are not sure what has been said or not said. Using a laptop is no different from traditional note-taking, except that we are using a keyboard. We also create a barrier between ourselves and others the second we open our laptop.
SmartWisdom enables us to manage knowledge and relationships simultaneously. It is easy to capture our questions and ideas, and we create a holistic overview automatically. We are able to record and listen simultaneously, and it should be easy to manage information overload and walk out of most meetings or presentations with a very high level of understanding (average 19% above non SmartWisdom users). In short SmartWisdom gives us a competitive edge.
