Presented by Elise Garvey
This presentation will discuss the use of multiple data placemat sessions in a recent evaluation of a fare enforcement program for bus rapid transit in King County, Washington. The first data placemat session was with the program staff who worked with and maintained the data, so the approach focused on getting feedback on more raw numbers. The second session was with department leadership and was focused on sharing and getting feedback on preliminary analysis. Program staff from the first session were present as well. This approach to this tool met stakeholders at the level at which they generally engage with data, which allowed for more useful discussions and sharing of information. This presentation will discuss the approach and lessons learned about adapting this tool to the context of a large local government department, where staff at different levels have different concerns and potential uses for the evaluation.
