We believe that underserved communities deserve a health system that offers services tailored to their needs and context. Resource-constrained organizations need new ways of working and problem solving to respond to their communities’ needs in an ever-changing environment.
Your team will begin to internalize design thinking mindsets and practice methods that spark innovation. You will advance a strategic project through immersing in exploratory research, focusing and re-framing your opportunity, and prototyping several ideas. Your organization will find value in working in a new way.
Commit to attending all workshops, and reach out to your coach for help. Co-design from Day One. Treat the people impacted by your challenge as experts and partners. Include them in project activities and regularly ask for their input. Build will by regularly sharing your activities with colleagues using project photos, video, and stakeholder quotes.
If you or your colleagues ever have questions about what you are working towards or what to do next, refer to this framework.
