What is this?
An evidence safari allows you to examine the evidence surrounding a policy issue in a collaborative and visual way.
When should I use this?
Do an evidence safari at the beginning of a project to examine background research and set a common fact base for your team. You can also use an evidence safari to generate insights after collecting and analyzing quantitative and qualitative data during your discovery phase.

Despite its quirky name, this method is a sound way to examine evidence as a team. Although there are probably ways to pull it off virtually, an evidence safari is best done in person as a hosted gallery walk where the people who provided the evidence can explain it and answer questions. The method has the double benefit of presenting ideas for peer interrogation and feedback as well as knowledge sharing.
