PRACTICAL ASSISTANCE TO A BROAD RANGE OF PEOPLE
Every case, every analysis is a result of in-depth discussion and research with the innovators and their teams. Some of the cases have been followed for years, (that's right!) and data gathered.
These social entrepreneurs, & intrapreneurs have shared their innovation process, providing a frank critique of their own work and the industry. This has been triangulated with other information available [published and documented] allowing for a thorough analysis.
Social Innovations morph over time and so we have continued dialog with the innovators and their teams to ensure these are accurately reflected .
While your own ideas to innovate & support might be very different from those featured here, we have sorted the projects under several categories to allow you to seek commonality, identify parts that may apply to your situation.
We have appropriately cross referenced information, tagged the different areas each organization or idea might fall under to broaden the scope.
FACTS, ANALYSIS AND CRITIQUE
We know you don't have a lot of time, so we have devised a crisp interactive format with interactive elements for every project.
The analysis and critique, risks and rewards have been clearly marked, including direct assessment of their work by the innovators themselves.
