Method Overview

Scenario co-creation cards are built upon VSD methods and inspired by existing literature on value expression. This method seeks to account for cultural factors in its design and operation.

Get Started

Using cards with pictures on, participants are thus asked to draw a card from each pile (green cards for stakeholders, blue cards for media, and red cards for role) while providing a brief description of what each card could mean

The researcher then further probes the participant to elaborate on their response as appropriate, developing their questioning based on the substantive content of the cards

Within an interview, we would expect to explore around 10-20 scenarios, with discussions lasting around 3-10 minutes.

There is one aspect where our approach is fundamentally distinctive: namely the emphasis upon a combination of using scenarios and enabling their co-creation from the aforementioned picture cards.
