Problem statement :

Traditional survey approaches provide an incomplete and biased understanding of the complex realities and emergent needs of developers.

Describe your solution to the problem

An ongoing sensemaking process harnessing collective intelligence through quantitative and qualitative data capture and real-time monitoring

Relevant experience

Extensive experience implementing SenseMaker® projects in the public and private sector.

Detailed plan (not required) – Fill in here any additional details


A framework of questions will be formulated by the project team and beta-tested by a user group, then reiterated based on feedback, in a rapid cycle of 3-4 weeks, before being released on the SenseMaker® data collection platform to a wider audience. The platform will remain open for data capture for a period of up to 12 weeks, during which the data will be monitored as it streams in on the SenseMaker® data dashboard, to provide real-time monitoring for developers’ emerging needs. These emergent insights from the data be played back to the developer community in a cadence of webinars every 2 weeks or so.

At the end of the 12 weeks, the emerging patterns will be fed into a further-iterated question framework and released to the ecosystem as an opt-in SenseMaker® personal journal, and developers can choose to form segmented user groups to discuss how insights can be leveraged on.


SenseMaker® can be deployed as a browser-based app or native mobile app (iOS and Android only) for data collection, and browser-based app only for data analytics. Laying the groundwork for user engagement can take the form of press releases, social media campaigns, email newsletter campaigns, discord, and face-to-face meetings.
