I'm currently writing my master thesis on visualisation of
positioning data. The thesis is written for a hospital here in
Norway, and my challenge is that there is only one interested party -
a nurse who works at the hospital and who has a high responisibility
to make sure that patients and doctors are at their expected location
at the expected time.

When reading litterature about participatory design I only find
examples where a larger number of persons would take advantage of the
product being developed. So my question is; do you know of any
publications where there is only one person who is the possible
future user of the product?

Hi Hans

I am not sure exactly what position you are wanting to take based on
this question, but I thought it was worth asking the following: even
if there is only one person who will operate the system, (i.e the
nurse), are there not also others that are stakeholders in the system
too? If I understand your question correctly, your product is making
representations of doctors and patients as well, potentially in ways
that will effect them, so they too could be considered interested
