Consider alternative formats, tailored to your audience.

Depend­ing on your audi­ence, sim­pli­fied results chains or oth­er draw­ings that illus­trate cause and effect should be con­sid­ered. For some audi­ences, depict­ing strength of evi­dence graph­i­cal­ly (e.g., using col­or cod­ed arrows that indi­cate suf­fi­cien­cy of the evi­dence sup­port­ing the assump­tions implic­it in the arrow) will be a desir­able prod­uct (e.g., to help accen­tu­ate to man­agers the over­all risk asso­ci­at­ed with a giv­en strat­e­gy and to iden­ti­fy the links with­in a strat­e­gy that most war­rant mon­i­tor­ing invest­ment.) For instance, many Con­ser­van­cy staff and part­ners who work with Indige­nous Peo­ples have devised alter­na­tive approach­es such as Life Plan­ning (in the Ama­zon), Par­tic­i­pa­to­ry Map­ping (in Melane­sia), and Healthy Coun­try Plan­ning (in Aus­tralia), using maps and sto­ries instead of results chains.
