On the left, a character with purple tones and a ponytail holds a pencil, writing on a placeholder box in the outcome map. On the right, another character wearing glasses holds a yellow sticky note with a camera icon to illustrate photographic evidence, placing it on another placeholder box in the outcome map.

I’m blown away! I love what this creates in terms of a report.

When I think about the evaluation, it is the picture of OutNav I have in my mind, of those boxes and columns and remembering what goes where. As soon as I had that to work with, then I had a centre point in the evaluation. I knew where my feet were, I knew where we were aiming and I knew what we needed in different places and I could start to tell the story.

It is a very useful piece of software that gives structure and coherence to the information that you collect, rather than just taking notes in a Word document, for example, or gathering data in a folder somewhere. It helps you sense-make and think holistically about your change process.
