Human-centered training design on social entrepreneurship
This training toolkit is a dynamic collection of educational resources and training materials for social entrepreneurs, social enterprises and hubs to provide young new and wannabe social entrepreneurs with an innovative training pathway based on the human-centered design and design thinking methods.
The toolkit is innovative because it uses problem solving as a training method and incorporates a multidisciplinary approach and themes needed by social entrepreneurs to be fully motivated and encouraged to create social start-ups, cooperatives, build a business and design a project with sustainable personal, social and economic goals.
The toolkit includes effective resources to design an authentic pathway to carry out successful social entrepreneurial projects with the communities, to deeply understand the people they are looking to serve, to dream up scores of ideas and to create innovative solutions rooted in people’s actual needs.
To help trainees figure out how to turn what they have learned into a chance to design a new solution, build and test their ideas before finally putting them out into the world, the toolkit presents three main phases, which are: Inspiration, Ideation, and Implementation.
