Once prototypes have undergone testing, successful piloting, and thorough monitoring to ensure their viability and effectiveness, they progress to the Apply Phase. In this phase, these refined prototypes transition from the experimental stage to real-world application of the solutions. Here, the focus shifts from theoretical validation to practical implementation, marking a significant step toward achieving the desired goals and outcomes of the project.
Evaluate & Refine
What can we do to assess and improve our work?
By the end of this step, you will know what is working and what adjustments you need to make before scaling the intervention with partners.
How to conduct this step and achieve its main objectives:
Appreciating the success of your solution hinges on a thorough evaluation. Scrutinizing the tangible results and the overarching impact of your solution not only provides insight into its efficacy but also equips you with a narrative to inspire and inform others about your journey.
Tool: Evaluation Tool Template
This compact guide equips you with essential processes for evaluating your innovation. With user-friendly steps and practical examples, this toolkit empowers newcomers to assess innovations, enabling informed decision making and fostering project success.
Upon assessing the efficacy of your interventions, you’ll gain valuable insights into areas that require enhancement to unlock their potential. Embrace the opportunity to pinpoint both the strengths and weaknesses of your solutions, as this will enable you to make the essential fine-tuning needed for success.
Tool: Solution Refinement Checklist
A solution refine checklist is a document used to evaluate and enhance proposed innovations. It outlines specific criteria, potential challenges, and improvement suggestions. By systematically addressing each aspect, it leads to the refinement of innovations, making them more viable, effective, and well-suited to the intended purpose.
