As suggested in the introduction, companion modelling is a stance, not merely an approach. By stance we mean someone’s moral attitude. By analogy with the analysis of literary stances by Meizoz (2007), we consider that the scientist involved in ‘implicated’ research becomes part of the social play. So in a companion modelling approach, he goes beyond the boundaries of the scientific field. He enters the public arena and sends out a certain image of himself. His stance presents a double dimension, that is, rhetorical and action based. Stance is conveyed, therefore, by taking a moral, affective, social, philosophical and political standpoint that leads to action. The commodian stance is thus our term for referring to a particular way of considering the position of the researcher in the relationship between science and society.

We shall henceforth use the term ‘designer’ to denote the leader or sponsor of a ComMod approach, and the term ‘facilitator’ to designate their activities in a collective key moment (see below).
Is technical improvement in our practices really going to be enough to preserve resources? Will it really be possible to correct current tendencies with the current rules? Will improved protection of resources really have a significant economic impact on our revenues?
For example, this also still distinguishes companion modelling from other participative approaches developed around certain environmental issues, which consider them as ‘meta-issues’ that can only be reconsidered by the partners. Another example can be found in other modelling approaches, which consider the perceptions of other stakeholders in the system to be modelled as less rigorous versions but which must be integrated with (their?) theoretical conceptualization.
Each individual writes his ideas on a card. The cards are pinned to a panel on the wall. The ideas are then put in order. The aim is to produce a structured list of options.
The facilitator uses a visual medium to assist expression. He presents illustrations haphazardly (e.g. landscapes, personalities, words, expressions, sketches, etc.), then states the theme of the exercise. Each participant chooses one or more illustrations and must explain what comes to mind for 3–4 min. At the end, the facilitator produces a summary, noting the variety and wealth of ideas, concentrating on the interesting ideas and correcting any errors. The aim is to produce a structured list of options.
