TOOL | Refining Your Ideas

Tools, Community Innovation, Ideation

Have you ever had an idea explained to you that was not fully thought out? It happens often and can be frustrating for both parties when the idea isn’t clear. Great ideas can sometimes be overlooked because they aren’t well understood or described. Framing ideas early on with careful consideration will give you the ability to clearly articulate it. 

This Tool will help you clearly articulate your ideas, identify key benefits or features for specific stakeholders or audiences, and reflect on what is required to go from idea to impact. By going through this step-by-step tool, you and your team will discover or reaffirm the effects that your idea will have on your organization, your partners, and your existing programs.
