Step by step
  1. The participants discuss and together agree on the overall purpose of the process – this is written in the template. This purpose controls what methods the participants choose to work with

  2. In unison, the screenplay is filled in. Hereafter, it functions as a support for the process. It can be a good idea to hang the methods on the template, so they are actively put into play. It also underlines the iterative process where the participants often will have to go back in the process

  3. The participants discuss roles, prerequisites, and frameworks in connection with the planning and note special roles or tasks in the screenplay. Here, it is important that the participants acknowledge and include each other’s perspectives
