Methods & tools

This section provides an introduction to selected methods and tools we use in our various projects, either alone or in combination. PlanSinn is interested in further developing these methods & tools and adapting them to the specific issues and requirements of our individual projects.

What many of these methods & tools have in common is that they are aimed at involving actors and eliciting their active participation in projects and processes and/or at communicating sometimes complex, abstract ideas and content in an understandable way. Often they are also designed to provide an overview of the power and influence structures of the individuals and institutions involved in a project prior to kick-off. The methods & tools presented here help us to involve, convey and communicate, to widen perspectives and open up scope for action.
