When developing an outcome map in OutNav it is important to go through a process of assessing the context for delivery and key risks and assumptions that need to be considered.

For the background on this see the following insights posts:

Storing your risks and assumptions in OutNav

In OutNav you can compile and add to your list (or ‘tray’) of risks and assumptions at any time, by clicking on the orange ! icon at the top of every page.

When you are adding a risk or assumption you can also reflect on the implications it will have for analysis of your progress, and ensure you collect data and feedback to be able to monitor this.

The Risks & Assumptions tray in ‘add new Risk or Assumption’ view:

Reflecting on your risks and assumptions in OutNav

It’s important to reflect on the implications of your risks and assumptions when you are tracking your progress and reporting.

You can easily view and consider them side by side with your analysis – click on the orange Risks & Assumptions icon and your risks and assumptions tray slides in on the right of your screen, as shown below:
