I don’t want guidance. Can I hide all of the hand-holding parts of NarraFirma?

No, sorry. We wrote NarraFirma primarily to help people who are just getting started doing PNI projects and need some help working their way through their projects. If you are an experienced researcher or facilitator, you can ignore the guidance in NarraFirma, but you can’t hide it. But if you are experienced, don’t discount the guidance NarraFirma offers out of hand. Taking the time to work through your plans and reflect on what has happened in a project isn’t just for novices. It can help even an experienced professional get new ideas and keep learning.
