Introduction: A laboratory-based approach to studying sensemaking was developed.
Method: Five teams reviewed a drug-smuggling scenario in order to determine which of five suspects they would arrest and the five pieces of evidence most important to their decision.
Results and discussion: Teams emphasised different aspects of the scenario and, while there were some overlaps in suspects or pieces of evidence selected, there were interesting differences in the explanations the teams offered and the conclusions drawn. The study provided an informative approach to the study of ‘framing’ in sensemaking.
