Webinar: Sensemaking: understanding why people do what they do
18th Jun 20
We seem to hear the word ‘sensemaking’ more and more lately, but what does it mean? Its most obvious definition is that it is about ‘making sense’. However, there is much more to it than that. In this webinar, Sue Bell will describe four different sensemaking models drawn from anthropology, design thinking, organisational change and her own work using sensemaking to understand why and how people do what they do.
1. To differentiate between different uses of the term sensemaking
2. To explain what triggers sensemaking and how it is different from decision-making
3. To describe the sensemaking process
In this webinar you will learn to:
1. Recognise the four different roles that sensemaking can play in research
2. Learn what to look for to identify when research participants are using sensemaking
3. Identify the type of project that suits a sensemaking approach
