Four examples of how you can make an informed decision quickly, while incorporating everyone’s feedback. Choose the one that best fits the complexity of the decision or format of the meeting.
Typical “briefs” or “writeups” have historically focused only on the content, often fostering a feeling of a one-way knowledge transfer. In the 1980s, this often took the form of the classic Powerpoint slide deck, and in the 2000s, we saw the introduction of collaborative documents such as Google Docs.
Now, Coda is elevating your typical brief into what we call a “two-way writeup.” And the primary difference is that two-way writeups bring questions and feedback intothe doc instead of siloing them in the comment rail and emails, or spreading them throughout disparate tools. That way, your brief is transformed into content and a conversation that’s guided toward progress.
