Thanks for sharing this in detail! Just to be curious, in sensemaker step 5 or 6, what kind of patterns can the software identify that "can't be detected by reading or textual analysis"?
Korinne Chiu
30:29
How long does it typically take to analyze data using sensemaker (of course, would be dependent on the number of stories)? What types of training or skills are needed to analyze data with Sensemaker?
Sadhvi Kalra
30:54
the Software aggregates the data and shows patterns, in conjunnction with the patterns that are emerging by reading or textual analysis.
Anne Sprinkel
33:25
we had a consultant do the bivariate anaylsis Korinne
Anne Sprinkel
33:48
much of the analysis actually
Emily Janoch
34:02
how long was the process from start to finish, and about how much did it cost?
Sadhvi Kalra
34:08
it took two months to analyse the sensemaker stories and identify paatterns through a participatory process
Yuleidy Merida
35:36
This is a Methods briefs about SenseMaker, with some additional details about the tool
Korinne Chiu
35:42
When would you recommend the use of sensemaker? In what cases do you think it is most useful/appropriate? And is the license a recurring subscription or one-time fee?
Anne Sprinkel
35:43
honestly don't know th cost, Emily - I can follow up and try to find out tho
Emily Janoch
36:26
rough estimate would be fine--just trying to get a sense of what other teams would need to replicate
David Leege
36:43
Very interesting to see how the findings influenced program design.
Sadhvi Kalra
38:28
@korinne Sensemaker is a participatory tool for getting qualitative data- it is useful to use when you want to know what the participants see as the most releventt social norms for them- it however should be used along with other qualitative tools like FGDs.
Anne Sprinkel
38:37
@David yes also noting that these shifts or increased focus was done via triangulation with other methods
Jay Goulden
42:31
What was the biggest surprise you discovered through Sensemaker, that you hadn't been aware of through other project M&E tools?
Tirzah Brown
42:35
For the cost: It was about $225,000 for the research, but that included a synthesis of some other forms of data.
Yuleidy Merida
43:34
This is the link to the full report of SenseMaker with additional data and analysis:

Anne Sprinkel
46:14
just to note that tirzahs estimate is for data collection for this and additional methods - not sensemakee alone
Ximena Echeverria MagariƱos
48:35
If you were to do this again: would you do a similar combination of methods/approaches? (semse,aker, FGs, outcome mapping, etc). Or would you explore others?
Andrew Wells-Dang
49:47
And what do you recommend for smaller projects that don't have the same level of resources for data collection that Tipping Point has? Can the same combination of methods be used?
Anne Sprinkel
52:34
@korinne - our second time around we're doing a 3 arm cluster RCT for the value of such a "rigorous" method in the views of our Target audiences for influencing
Anne Sprinkel
52:53
I think there is real value in sensemaker, though - but it is expensive
Sadhvi Kalra
53:04
@Andrew a certain number of stories would be needed (65-80) to let the patterns emerge from each set of participant grroups
Anne Sprinkel
53:07
oh sorry Ximena
Anne Sprinkel
53:10
not Korinne
Ximena Echeverria MagariƱos
54:24
Thank you Anne
David Leege
55:13
I think the real value of SenseMaker is the participatory approach, linked to the rigorous way of analyzing patterns in the micro-narratives.
Anne Sprinkel
56:35
agreed David
Anne Sprinkel
59:09
Suraiya what do you think? is this adding impact to traditional sessions?
Anne Sprinkel
01:01:26
thanks for having us Emily!
Suraiya
01:01:31
Yes. it add impacts to traditional sessions. like further FGD can conduct based on the findings of SM
Anne Sprinkel
01:01:42
great thanks Suraiya
Anne Sprinkel
01:01:45
goodnight!
