Free for Download: My presentation on how to use DESIGN THINKING to Innovate for Social Change (Human-Centered Design-IDEO)

hcdToday, I want to share with you my  latest presentation describing the Human Centered Desing toolkit developed by IDEO. The methodology intends to help international development organisations, NGOs and Social Entrepreneurs to understand the Comunity needs  and find innovative solutions that are at the same time  economically viable.

For years, businesses have used human-centered design to develop innovative solutions. Why not apply the same approach to overcome challenges in the nonprofit world?

This project, funded by International Development Enterprise (IDE) as part of a grant from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, sought to provide NGOs and social enterprises with the tools to do just that. IDEO, in collaboration with nonprofit groups ICRW and Heifer International, developed the HCD Toolkit to help international staff and volunteers understand a community’s needs in new ways, find innovative solutions to meet those needs, and deliver solutions with financial sustainability in mind.

The HCD Toolkit was designed specifically for NGOs and social enterprises that work with impoverished communities in Africa, Asia, and Latin America. The free kit, available for download, walks users through the human-centered design process and supports them in activities such as building listening skills, running workshops, and implementing ideas. The process has led to innovations such as the HeartStart defibrillator, CleanWell natural antibacterial products, and the Blood Donor System for the Red Cross—all of which have enhanced the lives of millions of people.

If you are interested in the toolkit you can download it in this  link.
