The Oneslate augmentation challenge

Try the Oneslate intelligence augmentation platform for improving goal achievement.

1) Pick a goal-related metric—customer satisfaction, return on human capital investment, or anything you want—and track it.
2) Implement the Oneslate private intelligence platform.
3) See what happens to your goal achievement.

How is Oneslate’s platform designed to generally improve goal achievement? Oneslate is designed and built to augment human intelligence. In the increasingly complex, cross-functional, and accelerating world, smart people and groups can use smart tools to act smarter. Who couldn’t use more competitive advantage?

Comprehensive Alternative Consideration and Information Overload Prevention

What’s the number one cause of errors in decision-making? The answer may be lack of alternative consideration. So, the first thing Oneslate does is enable comprehensive alternative consideration while preventing information overload. To use Oneslate for efficient alternative tracking and analysis, make a node representing the topic that the alternatives address. Then, outline the available alternatives and rate them as applicable. Over time, you and collaborators can add additional alternatives under their common parent node. New nodes appear with orange borders, so there’s no need to re-read nodes previously rated by you.

Logical Formatting and Contextual Discovery

When information is arranged by chronology, it isn’t arranged by logic. In Oneslate, information conforms to logic trees. All adjacent nodes provide logical support for the same parent node. Nodes can be linked to any number of supports and conclusions. When you explore a logic tree, you can see the causal links between information, and you can access all nodes related to the topic you are interested in, without having to wade through disparate data sources. Linking an existing node in a new location automatically includes all of the existing node’s relations. This means that you can build hierarchical representations of complex data without duplicating content, and you’ll never miss previously encoded relevant information.

Real Time and Trending Consensus Identification

Surveys are easy to make, but normally they take a certain amount of effort to create and take. Every node in Oneslate is a 5-bin validity poll, which color-codes that node on a per-user basis. If a node is valid, rate it from up/bright blue to down/black. Hover or tap any node to reveal its current and trending consensus data.

Ultimate Single-Page Topic Overviews

Because of the consistent logic-tree formatting, even the shape of the single-page infographs generated by Oneslate provide an excellent preview as to the quantity and nature of information in each subsection supporting any given topic before you zoom in to inspect interesting areas. And since nodes are color coded by by validity according to your evaluation, it is easy to visualize weak and strong portions of support structures.

Cognitive Bias Identification

Information can change or be updated, so when you re-rate a node, you get a bias survey to check for whether a number of factors affected the change. This way, if you re-rate the node again in the future, you can re-review the bias log for that node, and see what was going on in the past, so that that information can be made use of on a rolling basis.

Follow and Share Important Topics

Following a topic from any node’s hover toolbar bookmarks it in your profile for quick reference in the future. Clicking the node form your followed list takes you directly to its single-page tree overview. Sharing a topic from the node toolbar lets you communicate an important node with a collaborator by email or social network, so that members of your Oneslate platform can follow the link directly to the content that you have shared.

Overcome Tricky Problems

Problems are called wicked when there is no best solution, the solution is one-shot, and the solution requires learning on some party’s behalf. Fortunately, Aumann (1976) found that rational agents with common priors and knowledge of each other’s posteriors should not disagree. By sufficiently mapping an idea-space, which is normally difficult to do without a “real hypermedia” system such as Oneslate (and Oneslate is the only simple enough one to use without being a technical analyst type), implementers of the Oneslate platform can effectively wrangle complexity to arrive at a shared consensus reality, permitting the identification and execution of solutions to such hard problems.

Deep Benefits

In addition to facilitating true thought-structure capture and automated playback, Oneslate provides an outlet for people to contribute their full arsenal of mental models for the good of the organization which employs them. In many scenarios, social or political constraints mean that insights go unspoken, and this is costly. Oneslate abstracts away the bounds normally blocking rational communication, and as a result collaborators on Oneslate systems should feel more connected and meaningful, because they are able to contribute fully, for improved workplace satisfaction (which is at 20% levels for sizeable orgs).
