What are the benefits of an online discussion?

More and more parties are using an online discussion to collect ideas, discuss proposals and vote on solutions on a supra-regional basis. With adhocracy+ you can exchange & discuss online with party friends for a period of your choice. A moderation function supports you in getting online discussions back on track if they should wander off. adhocracy+ makes the process simple, fast and secure.

Online discussions can also be easily linked to on-site events. Thus, content can be discussed, prioritized and ultimately coordinated online in advance. Subsequently, the most important topics are recorded at a special event or a federal party conference, for example, and are actively incorporated into the party's decisions.

Are you a member of a local association? With adhocracy+ you can regularly exchange ideas with other local associations, regardless of location, and obtain opinions on a problem that may already be known there. Here, too, you decide whether all members or only a certain local association should participate in the online discussion.

Process

Here you will find a proposal for the process flow. Depending on the number of potential participants and the frequency of the online discussion, it makes sense to extend or shorten phases.

  1. Preparation (approx. 1 week)
  2. Participation Phase 1: Online discussion (approx. 3-4 weeks)
  3. Participation Phase 2: Voting (approx. 1 week)
  4. Follow-up: Summary & categorization of the discussion (approx. 1 day)

Modules used by adhocracy+

Estimated effort

The effort for you as the initiator of the process is about 1-2 hours to set up on adhocracy+ and about 1 day of follow-up for the summary of contributions after the participation process is completed. During the discussion, you can decide if you want to moderate contributions that are discussed as a moderator.
