How Characteristics of a Project Influence the Role of Reflexive Monitor

The figure below was created during a workshop with Reflexive Monitors in the Primary Innovation programme. It was designed to provide understanding on the characteristics of a project and its participants which influence the role and the level of control a Reflexive Monitor has in influencing these project characteristics.

Influences which are located closer to the centre of the bull's-eye are those which a reflexive monitor has more control of influencing. These include the relationship with the project manager, having a support network, and experience as a facilitator.

The further outside the bull's-eye the less influence a reflexive monitor has in impacting these influences. In fact these characteristics will influence how the Reflexive Monitor does their job.
