Why Branching Scenarios?
● “Choose your own adventure”
● Interactive, engaging, fun
● Helps people practice skills in a safe way
Scenarios are one of my favorite ways to immerse learners and give
them a safe space to practice applying a new process, or to explore
the nuances of performing their jobs.

Why Branching Scenarios?
● Recognizing and challenging their own assumptions
● Recovering from mistakes in a long or complex process
● Navigating extended, ambiguous situations
● Explore the nuances of performing their jobs
● Low risk failure; freedom to fail
● Learn to self-correct
