We share and analyzed cases of partners’ everyday challenges, and learned to work with cooperation tools such as design thinking, and business model canvas.
Design thinking is a problem-solving approach that emphasizes understanding the user’s perspective and redefining problems to identify solutions.
The Business Model Canvas is a tool for describing, designing, challenging, and pivoting your business model. It is especially useful for entrepreneurs.
Teaching Design Thinking and the Business Model Canvas (BMC) to NGO workers can be extremely beneficial, enhancing their ability to create impactful, sustainable, and user-focused solutions. Here are a few of the reasons why:
- Understanding User Needs
- Efficient Resource Use
- Stakeholder Communication
- Strategic Planning
- Capacity Building
- Scalability and Adaptability
