More complex tool that should ideally be done over a few days. Given the strategic nature of the inputs/outputs, this needs consultations with seniors, peers and ideally needs to be revised after a first pass.

    Excellent tool to enable thinking about innovation. While mapping, I realised that my organisation is just at a very early stage of exploring opportunity. Using this tool, it would be easier to plan for innovation, especially in the current quarter of the year when we are working on strategic plan for next five years. As a suggestion, if it is possible to share an example of an innovation plan, it may be more helpful to the beginners like us. I might share our organisation’s plan in future when we have it ready. Thanks for sharing such a great tool!

    I thought Global Giving is for fund raising; it is not only that but for developing systems in the non profits. That is something extraordinary.

    The tool is excellent and has made me understand the aspect of Global Giving more than a fundraising organization. The tools is extremely important in making an organization realize the need for growth holistically and in sharing strength and fundraising. The tool is awesome
