To answer this question, we will first take a trip into the past. Card Sorting practices have been used in the field of psychology for over 60 years. Through card sorting individuals have the opportunity to put science in their hands and sort/filter cards based upon a pre-determined question. The individual engages directly in an active process of comparing and contrasting scenarios based upon the content (roles, practices, competencies etc.) on each card. This powerful process that has been used with individuals, with teams, and across organizations for decades can now be deployed virtually by our Qualified Administrators using our Virtual Card Sorting Platform! The result is maximum flexibility in deploying card sorting, and a view of in-depth sorting analytics that you have never had before!
