The solutions: - should operate near-real-time, - should allow for an anonymous feedback function, - and must be easy to use. - could be using social media, enterprise 2.0, human cloud, outsourcing or any combination of the four Cost is not an issue, and solutions may come from digital collaboration technologies applied in other organizational contexts (etc. corporate, military, government) as long as they are adaptable to a university context. We require two deliverables. The first deliverable is a 4-slide presentation in the following format: (in approx. 3-4 days) - The first slide will summarize the problem, define the scope of the research, and state any challenges. - Each of the remaining three slides will provide a different benchmark example of an organization/situation that is using a feedback platform effectively.

My company is an online travel agency that handles very complex personal and corporate airfare. It's typical to have dozens of passengers on one trip with a company paying for the trip, but then each passenger also changes their trip and pays more. We currently service dozens of these transactions per year by hand and with rudimentary software. We are improving our software to handle more business easily. We already have developers. We lack a designer who understands the accounting. Your job is to talk with our bookkeeper and help our lead designer to document and design how the process should work in software.

I run a small company, and we're looking at process improvement and better process management. I've looked at a few BPM software, and one that I can start to get my head around is IBM's Blueworks live. I need someone who has experience in process management for small businesses to help us to integrate some kind of solution to help us keep on top of our processes, and ideally walk staff through certain processes when they need to follow them (perhaps as a checklist?) Ideally we need to keep the cost minimal, and the process relatively simple.
