What patterns can we discover together?
Where do we overlap and how can we work together?
What new idea, trend, or outlier can be shared with the group?
Where are you (or your organization/business) heading? And who or how can we help you get there?
In planning and facilitating the Meet and Greet, the AccLab utilized collective intelligence design principles and methodologies. This framework is founded on the principle that enhanced capacity to solve problems is created when people work together through crowd sourcing results with a wider range of data, ideas, and insights. These insights can lead to new break throughs and learnings.
The AccLab followed the collective intelligence design principles below:
- Increase diversity of the people you involve and opinions you listen to
- Integrate diverse types of data to unlock fresh ideas
- Be citizen centered: data empowerment, not data extraction
What we learned:
From the Meet and Greet we learned that innovators are eager to engage with each other and are actively looking for platforms and opportunities to collaborate and share their work. The innovation ecosystem in South Sudan needs a platform where they together can convene and share insights from their learnings and convene in a space to meet, network and market their ideas.
