TAKE SMART RISKS


Innovation comes with risks. When we break from previous practices, we are never confident of the outcomes. Organizations are willing to take risks to achieve the change we hope to see, but how do we and our partners make smarter and better risks?  

THINK IN SYSTEMS


To create lasting social change, we must innovate within systems to shift the status quo for poor and vulnerable people.  Innovation in isolation doesn’t lead to impact; they must be connected to systems.

LOOK EVERYWHERE


It is hard to predict where solutions will come from so we must truly scan every where using new practices or seeing new solutions in old places.

BRING PEOPLE AND IDEAS TOGETHER


Innovation occurs when different people and different points of view come together and are recombined and reminaged to develop new solutions. There is nothing new under the sun. But there are endless mashups of new ways of solving old problems.
