  • Face to Face ParEvo – suitable to classrooms and workshops
  • Open ParEvo – for open ended participation e.g online
  • Anonymised IDs – for additional security
    • Facilitators are give a set of dummy email addresses to give to participants use to log into and participate in ParEvo exercises e.g. Part1@aptivate.com, Part2@aptivate.com, Part3@aptivate.com, etc
  • Gamification: Participants could be given scores which represent the total number of all contributions others have added to their contributions, and these scores could be made visible to all participants. The scoring system would exclude contributions which built on one’s own previous contributions. This option will soon be built into the ParEvo app.
  • Subsequent Synthesis: After the completion of a ParEvo exercise it may be possible to democratically synthesise a new composite storyline, making use of the most valued contributions from each iteration. The process would work as follows:
    1. Participants vote for the most preferred/likely-to-happen contribution in iteration 1, when considered as an extension to the seed contribution
    2. Participants vote for the most preferred/likely contribution in iteration 2, when considered as an extension to the seed contribution + highest voting contribution in iteration 1
    3. Participants vote for the most preferred/likely contribution in iteration 3, when considered as an extension to the seed contribution + highest voting contribution in iteration 1 and 2
    4. Etc… until and including the content of the last iteration.

There is a risk that various inconsistencies will arise from this process, but they may be a price that has to be paid for an overall single vision
