Exploring fresh ideas, radical collaboration, leveraging technology, rapid experimentation are some of the themes that don't typically get associated with the social sector. They seem obscure and hence are rarely explored by social sector organizations. Design Thinking simplifies both the understanding and application of these themes.
In our capacity development workshops, we train the participants on Design Thinking (methodology, tools, techniques and best practices) and empower them with the skills to apply them on their projects and programs.
Many novel social sector programs and interventions don't get implemented because of lack of alignment between the diverse range of stakeholders: Government, Government Officials, Donors, NGOs, CSOs, Implementation Partners, Agencies (research, communication, digital, technology), Beneficiaries amongst others.
In our multi stakeholder alignment workshops, we bring together the most critical stakeholders on one platform either physically or digitally and facilitate discussions to create alignment, draft common goals and chart out a clear way forward
The entire process of solution development after diagnosing the problem can be time consuming. It involves steps such as exploring ideas, finalizing a set of ideas, conceptualizing the details, creating a semi-working version and then taking it to key stakeholders for a review.
In our co-creation workshops, we fast-pace the solution development process by bringing diverse minds together (varied stakeholders, participants from different sectors) and enabling them to apply various steps of solution development in a guided and time-boxed manner. The diversity of participants ensures that the solutions are comprehensively reviewed and time-boxing ensures that the participants stay focused and don't get lost in the unnecessary details.
