Diversity & Inclusion

Researcher seeking a Co-Facilitator for April May 2018 Workshops in Wellington

Can a playful evaluation encourage inclusivity and creativity?

If you have heard of LARP and fantasy role playing, you are familiar with the two objectives of the game. In the former – players in round-the-table adventures develop the overall game story together. They also go on an intraspective journey — as players accumulate experiences that allow them to cultivate a unique voice for their individual character.

I explore these principles for developing an evaluation tool informed by Q methodology. My research seeks to understand how evaluation can be used to support inclusivity within strategy development – as well as cultivate the evaluative capacity of individual organizational members.
