The Development Impact and You toolkit has been specially designed for practitioners to invent, adopt or adapt ideas that can deliver better results.
It contains 30 innovation tools that are quick to use, simple to apply, and designed to help busy people around the world create more impact with their work.
These tools have not come out of thin air. We have researched and tested many hundreds of tools currently being used – and have included only the ones which practitioners found most useful. Many of them are well documented and have been widely used in other sectors. In that sense this toolkit is standing on the shoulders of giants, and we are happy to acknowledge that. All the tool descriptions include a key reference, so it is easy to trace back to their origins and dive deeper into other publications about their application.
