Consensus Workbook


In what follows you are invited to provide input on the analytic summary of discussions that came out of the Canadian Forum on Innovation and Societal Impact.  You have been asked to participate either because you were at the Forum, or because you expressed an interest in being part of the next steps. 


We want to determine the degree to which the discussions' outputs fall into zones of agreement. The process is designed to ensure that future engagement, research and action plans around the Forum are underpinned by broad alignment and shared assumptions amongst stakeholders.


We are immensely appreciative of your time. Your input is important in demonstrating the need for new strategies and policies around innovation in the social sector and setting up the next steps of the research and action plan that will support the effort.


Agreement and Disagreement.


You have the option to select any or all of the 12 topics around which the Forum Agenda revolved. You can then select any of the 3-4 questions associated with the theme. For each question select, you will be presented with a series (on average 5-7) of claims/statements that reflect the outcome of discussion. You are asked to indicate your level of agreement with each of them. You only need to click on/check the answer. 


You agree (or somewhat agree) with a claim if you believe or suspect or assume that it is true. 

  • You may be unsure whether the claim is true, but still agree with it.
  • You may agree with suggestions and hypotheses that still need to be demonstrated.


You are not asked to justify your answers. All relevant claims will be examined critically at a later stage, leveraging evidence and expertise. The first step in our approach is to confirm the level of agreement.


If you disagree or somewhat disagree with one of the claims, we would welcome a brief explanation, and you will be given that option. 


If you have suggestions, want to be directly involved in thinking about the results, or have any questions, please contact us.
