Welcome to a place where everything is made of motions. Bipronum is about using combinations of motions that represent common business milestones to engage and go on success journeys with others. It is a world that you control and manipulate. In Bipronum, the business universe is your playground. The only limit is your imagination – and of course the business objective at hand .
Freedom and flexibility are by design, this is your gig, who is best at organizing success?
Any kind of success can be powered, including:
… and anything else you can think of!
When you assemble a Winflow out of motions, you’re organizing people to complete work and actions that will ensure the deal, agreement, transaction, asset, or job gets done. Here, people engage together on a brief journey to success for a very clear goal.
They don’t have to be a team, work at the same company, or agree to be part of a group or channel. They don’t necessarily even communicate with one another. They simply come together based on your request and do their part.
Once active the Winflow is not cast in stone, but everyone helps to keep changing it for the best outcome, to be on time or ahead of time, to pull in all the right experts, cut time where possible, change the order of motions as needed. Being resourceful together! Just like the sharing economy works nowadays – it’s that simple.
Winflows are made up of motions that represent milestones on the way to success. The 11 motions are shown when you create a new Winflow and in the FAQ section of this document.
Each motion already includes all the roles and actions needed for a specific outcome or milestone, and these 11 account for about 80% of the interactions we have with others. When work items, people, and timelines are filled in, the Winflow is ready to be started.
Don’t be afraid to try out new ways of achieving success with Bipronum. Winflows are super flexible. You can build them any way you want, and you can change them at any time even when active – because people and business are dynamic. Move the blocks around as you need. Try out combinations to find the most effective. Grow your business by engaging further across your network, building more trust and reputation around joint traction and success.
Bipronum is made for discovery, innovation, and optimization. From the simplest tasks to the grandest transactions, you can assemble Winflows to get anything done, quicker and easier. Repeat your success and get better every time. Or create opportunities that were never there before!
Winflows always have an owner and the invited participants. Only owners can make big changes like adding or removing motions or participants, and changing timelines. But everyone can change people’s roles if, for example, they need to delegate work to someone else, or add participants if, for example, they know a subject matter expert who can help break through a tough spot.
Each motion contains specific roles/actions and there are three types. You may be familiar with RACI-role types from project management systems, which help show what to expect from whom. Bipronum uses 3 of the 4, color-coding each type:
This way, you can quickly see who’s doing what, and what to expect from each.
Work colleagues, customers or clients, partners, friends and family can all be assigned roles—there’s no limit to who can, and perhaps should participate.
Why are they called Winflows? Because winning is what it’s all about! And of course being able to save time and effort, provide better customer service, and grow your business.
When people complete their actions, their color as part of the motion changes to gold. And when all participants have completed their action, the motion closes and gets a specific gold icon to signify what has been achieved together. Finally when all motions have been completed, the whole journey becomes a success.
From the top:
While Winflows can be all kinds of combinations of motions and people and work items desired – and can be changed at any time – organizations stay. They can be preexisting or you can build your own community around certain goals. You can include anyone by inviting them on the edit panel. They can be companies, families, or school committees. Toggle between organizations in the top left corner to see notifications, Winflows and people associated with that organization.
Select “New Winflow” in the left panel, then click the +Create button.
Start with selecting a work item from your Dropbox or Google Drive, it can be any kind of file. Note that Bipronum is entirely cloud-based so work items need to be stored online and accessible by everyone. Check permissions before adding to your Winflow.
Now, start your Winflow with one of the 11 motions shown. A hover will show you what each helps you achieve. With the first one in place, you have the outline of a Winflow! Then keep adding from the edit panel on the right until you have what you want:
A draft of your Winflow will automatically be saved but no one will see it or be invited to participate until you click the “Start” button. You can do that now or later. Note that you won’t be able to start until your work items, roles, and timelines are filled in but you can edit these things anytime. When you do start, the Winflow will be active and everyone will receive an email invite. They will be able to see the entire Winflow and receive important alerts.
At any time, a duplicate can be made of a Winflow, or they can be saved as an organizational template. Click on Edit and find these options at the bottom of the panel, as shown below.
Bipronum is more than a way to organize, it’s where you create work success together with others. As a system of record, the Logbooks lets you see what actions have been taken throughout the Winflow. Click on Log to access it. We are working on a Blockchain option for verifying actions and wins – truly protecting your work with the strongest armor.
