SKU: SenseMaker-VQS Category:


Virtual Quickstart is an 8-week learn-as-you-do journey, where we work with you to design and implement your own real pilot engagement, step-by-step. Over the years, we have seen that the best way to learnSenseMaker® is to apply it in context in a real engagement. The Quickstart journey offers you an opportunity to benefit from a blended learning approach which includes access to our online learning platform, live tutorials and consultation sessions with expert SenseMaker® practitioners.

  • Deliver a pilot SenseMaker engagement design
  • Teams of up to three (3) people (extra seats available at discounted rates) OR individuals
  • Includes a 3 month SenseMaker® subscription for the team with options to upgrade to 6 or 12 months

Live tutorials

Live 90-minute tutorials will be held via Zoom every 2 weeks at a pre-set time.

We have designed this as a cohort-based learning intervention to maximize peer-learning and allow delegates to benefit from cross-pollination and interaction with a cohort of peers exploring the application of SenseMaker® in their own areas of work. However, alternative tutorial times may be scheduled for teams who have clashes.

What to expect

The Quickstart journey provides a learning intervention with a focus on capacity building and active learning.

Our hybrid learning approach includes virtual self-paced learning as well as instructor-led sessions. You will be given access to our learning platform and carefully developed training videos to learn the basics of using SenseMaker®.

To optimise peer-learning, we recommend that teams set aside time to go through the content together. Every session has recommended reading as well as assignments. We will also meet for facilitator-led tutorial sessions where we run through group activities that help synthesise the material, workshop your engagements and answer questions. These tutorials also allow for peer-to-peer learning across teams to allow delegates to benefit from multiple perspectives on the application of SenseMaker®.

The curriculum covers:

  • Engagement conceptualisation and collection design
  • Design principles of SenseMaker signifiers; do and don’ts working with signifiers; and how to use our signifier library
  • Working with SenseMaker® data: patterns, sense-making, and the development of actionable insights
  • How to engage clients or your organisation in intervention design i.e. moving from data to action
