Activity 3: Identifying what might go wrong
What to do
This activity is similar to the Taking time for questions activity carried out during Step 4, and is conducted in basically the same way.
1. If there has been a break between this activity and the previous one, start with a group discussion to review what was learned or decided at the previous meeting.
2. Present the task as follows:
“Could everyone please write on a slip of paper a problem they think might arise. Write this problem in the form of a question or a drawing. For example:
“What would we do if the person trained to do the maintenance leaves the community?”
3. Ask a group member to collect all the problems in the container. This container becomes the problem box.
4. When all the problems have been collected, pass the problem box to one participant at a time and ask each participant to pick out a slip of paper and answer the question. Participants who pick their own question should be asked to replace it and pick another.
5. Give the group plenty of time to discuss the answers. If a participant cannot answer a question, the question can be answered by someone else in the group.
6. Facilitate a discussion with the group on what it has learned during this activity, what it liked and what it did not like about this activity.
7. Optional: If there is time, it may be helpful to have the group sort the problems into different categories. Suggestions for two-pile sorting of problems are:
1. If necessary, more time can be allowed for participants to think of questions. For example, the activity could begin before a lunch break or at the end of the day, and continue after the break or on the next day.
