For those in Manitoba, you can also create internal/external EngageMB sites through CSM to help facilitate collaboration/engagement throughout an innovation project. For those external, we partnered with BangTheTable to create a space where Gov MB employees trained in IAP2 can develop online engagement portals, You can see some public facing versions at https://engagemb.ca
For those from the MB Gov, here is a link where you can find many of the Lean and Innovation Engineering templates we use for ideation and communication: http://intranet.mbgov.ca/fs/resources/Pages/facilitator-resources.aspx
For those outside of the MB Gov, feel free to reach out to me at email@example.com and I can see what tools might work for you and share them.

As a former EIA Intake worker, this sounds amazing! Great job!
Is there any communication to applicants once they have submitted their online application as to how long processing will take? I work for EIA (and appreciate the work you have done), and know that clients are often desperate for cash when applying. I have had a a few former clients call and ask how do I know whether my application has been received and processed?
To clarify, the 6 to 8 weeks waiting time may be true for single applicants. but it is not true for community offices. families with children and single parents with children can get in much more quickly. Under two week period is true for our office!
no problem! I can contact richard directly (o: Thanks Richard.
Lindsay I just signed up for a MURAL webinar, looks super interesting.
MGI = Manitoba Government Inquiry
Thanks Neil, out of curiosity what were a few of the most FAQ's ?
BTT is our technology branch in MB
BTT = Business Transformation and Technology (Govt of MB tech folks)
Thanks Richard. My question, to clarify: is there any communication to applicants once they have submitted their online application as to how long processing will take, immediately after they have submitted their application?
Hey everyone, I missed a part of Neil’s presentation - did we cover what it was like to jump into someone else’s program?
Are people who are hosting an online session also using a person who is a "producer" in the background to manage the tech, vet questions, keep the sessions running smoothly?
Cordella Friesen was the ADM on Neil's project. Can you share what it means to be a leader on an innovative project like this one?
I concur - I had a project get put on a shelf in previous employment (not GOM) because the champion ended up retiring before the project was finished.
I noticed most people are not using headphones or ear buds with external mic. Some computer mics work well some of the time but not all of the time. What are people experiencing?
https://experience.arcgis.com/experience/f55693e56018406ebbd08b3492e99771 Neat share: Manitoba just released it's GIS dashboard to share comprehensive data re COVID19 in the province publically.
headphones for me
I have a camera with a microphone that normally works well, but I just realized I wasn't using it. I was "using" the microphone in my closed laptop, which means I likely couldn't be heard well.
Headphones for me too!
Just borrowing a laptop from my husband. Don't have headphones yet...
using smart phone headset as microphone is better than government computer microphone and upgraded to personal speakers for sound.
There's a cool webinar IPAC Manitoba did that might be of interest https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pLSOXBL9-tM&feature=youtu.be
Central purchasing policies generally don't allow areas to go purchase their own headsets and some other hardware… it must be purchased through MDA which can result in minimal options and long delays. there are challenges.
