What is it?
Quiet Value bridges the gap between generic knowledge and hero-stories. It is research driven, but not an academic treatise on social innovation; it gets personal, in-depth and specific with organizations, their processes and the people.
From around the world and across business models...some operate at an international scale, some at the community level- all equally successful, equally innovative.
Information here comes directly from social innovators, innovative organizations and team members within. Triangulating hours of discussion notes with documents given by the organizations and other articles, each innovator / innovative organization is presented as a 'case study' for ease of understanding.
Some of the biggest names and most interesting organizations from around the world have shared their thinking here.
What's in it...
Some of the people and organizations....
A departure from hero stories
Focus is on the innovation process, ideologies and insight. This is not a compilation of hero-stories of overcoming odds. It represents a practical know-how straight from social innovators and their organizations.
Understanding the creative mind
In the Creative Thinkers section, several innovators have shared their outlook and philosophy on what it takes to get an idea off the ground and into implementation and scaling. Talking to them has been a privilege and their commitment to this, to help others is a humbling experience.
Vickie Cammack: Tyze, RDSP, PLAN
Satinath Sarangi: Sambhavana Clinic
Andrea Coleman: Riders for Health
Jo Nzerem: Ashoka, Human Angle
From idea to implementation
Showcasing 'organizational analyses' of different kind. Mapping the process of how an idea becomes a tangible product/service, what impediments lie along the way, and how scaling is not always the right choice.
A comprehensive glossary of over 100 basic terms that everyone in this field ought to know.
And for those not very familiar wit the field, an excellent starting point!!
