How can your stakeholders help you design more appropriate and sustainable programmes?

Design Thinking

Design Thinking is a creative (human centered) approach to problem solving which starts with the people you are designing for and ends with radical new solutions. These are then developed and tested in the target community and with other key stakeholders. Through bringing together Participatory Video and Design Thinking, InsightShare and the d.school Paris have developed a unique social innovation process which puts the intended beneficiaries in the driving seat.  We can work directly with your stakeholders or train your teams to adopt an 'innovation culture'. By engaging your wider ecosystem in the design process, we reduce the risk of failure and ensure better and more adapted programme design with strong local support.
