Table 5 Design considerations of the facilitated workshop on the rich picture

From: Using a ‘rich picture’ to facilitate systems thinking in research coproduction

• Orientate participants: speak to the nature of the data (ethnographic) and where it has come from (the point of view of the ethnographer who was working alongside Health Promotion Officers)
• There are significant power imbalances between what we surface and where it comes from (i.e. the people from whom the data was generated are not participants in this workshop), and between actors in the room
Should parts of the workshop be in silence? This is a way to attend to power differences
Acknowledge the absent actor in the system to make sure they are recognised and thought about during the day
• Need to create a non-judgement-based approach to this data interrogation – need to work from a place of curiosity to allow for improvements, not judgements
• Acknowledge this is not an exhaustive review of all issues – we hope to land on improvement ideas but will allow for flexibility in case participants need to spend more time in understanding versus problem solving
• Potential concern that the participants may get into a group think, by defending their point of view against the picture
• Logistics:
Half-day workshop with morning tea served
Large room with tables and chairs for 40 people, audio/visual equipment and white boards; tables can be moved or removed as needed
Stationary, including sticky notes, markers, tape and ability to display the rich picture are available
