CASE STUDY: DELiVERY OF PRACTiCAL PROBLEM SOLViNG FOR ENERGY CHARiTY
Renewable World, a UK charity tackling poverty through renewable energy, needs to ensure as much of the funds it receives as possible is spent on its projects that deliver real change in tackling poverty through the use of renewable energy. As a charity, these projects are widespread, and often change in priority, with limited resources to complete them to maximum effectiveness. Renewable World needed a methodology for prioritising, structuring and tracking the projects it undertakes.
WHAT WE DiD
At the Renewable World base in central London, we delivered a tailored version of our COLLABORATiVE LEARNiNG PRACTiCAL PROBLEM SOLViNG course. The course used a proven lean problem-solving methodology; A3 thinking to frame two strategic organisational challenges Renewable World was facing in 2019. The framework gave the direction to analyse the challenges by clearly defining the problem, setting the vision for the future, and understanding the root causes of key issues.
An action plan was detailed for each of the scenarios, giving thought to stakeholder engagement and the timeframe for realising the future vision. Method for reviewing these plans as a board of trustees was then discussed to ensure regular governance and agreement of the priority of future projects.
