Description

Thinking inside the box:
The importance of scaling and integrating innovation within systems

Innovation has the power to transform global development and dramatically accelerate progress, but too often great ideas fail to gain traction or get scaled up. In the past, the global development community focused on finding an innovative program or social enterprise and providing direct support, but there is a growing recognition that more attention must be paid to the whole innovation ecosystem — and how to incorporate innovations into systems. In this one hour webinar, we’ll explore key ingredients for scaling what works. We’ll explore questions such as:

  • Is there a clear pathway to scale? Is there an important sequencing of key steps? Does monitoring and evaluation support learning for scaling up?
  • What are the most important ecosystem ingredients/enabling conditions that enable innovators to scale?
  • How important is peer-to-peer learning when it comes to innovation?
  • What is it like to be an innovator? what are day-to-day challenges and opportunities they face?
  • What can donors, global development implementers and policymakers do to better support innovation?
