Action Potential - Ultra-light decision app for distributed teams
Created by Jeremy Gordon.
I'm a Developer in Nairobi, Kenya. I work at Echo Mobile. I earned a B.S. from Stanford University.
A light-weight decision support app designed for distributed teams. Define the objective, invite collaborators, choose custom metrics, and begin assessing proposals. The prototype leverages Firebase for realtime updates between team members. Proposals are ranked in real-time by combining upvotes for pros and cons, and the average team rating of each custom metric.
At my software startup, our engineering team often finds itself in front of small or large decisions that require comparison and discussion. We are always under some time pressure, so efficiency is of high importance. The metrics used to assess proposals for any given decision differ depending on the context and the objective. While brainstorming sessions work well when in the same room, Slack and other business communication tools are not optimized for this kind of process.
This app is still very rough around the edges and could use support on design, and performance improvements.
User testing to identify weaknesses of current design
Provide organizations with easy to use decision app with minimal barrier to entry
