All knowledge is legitimate and should be considered and respected, avoid the arrogance of scientific knowledge as much as that of field experience. Beware of the illusion of easy expression of knowledge and avoid jargon.
Knowledge takes different forms depending on its nature, origin and the way it is expressed by the social and natural sciences or by managers and stakeholders from different sectors. This includes concepts, reasoning and data formats. Create the conditions for all participants to both express their knowledge and feel legitimate to ask for clarification or even to question the knowledge gathered. Make sure that everyone feels that they have been heard.
