Here’s the second tool you can use to build a working scenario in minutes alongside a subject expert.
Twine is a tool used for creating interactive fiction – branching novels where you can choose routes through the story.
Here I’ll show you what it looks like and talk about its advantages over Quandary, which we looked at in a previous post.
As before we’ll use a scene from a scenario on giving positive feedback. You want to give good feedback to Alex, a member of your team who’s saved the day with a previous client, and win his support for the next difficult meeting. When I was writing this scenario with a management trainer I used Quandary, but I would have used Twine if I’d known about it at the time.
You can find out more about Twine and download it (it’s free and open-source) at Twinery.org.
If you’re scripting a scenario for the first time, make sure to try Designing Predicaments, my free scenario workbook.
