PS: As an additional part of our partnership with Tarsadia, we created a customized capacity assessment tool to help Tarsadia choose partner organizations in the future and gauge their social innovation capacity. This internal tool is the result of a year of extensive research and facility visits with organizations around India.

    A very well thought out guide for any designer serious about taking up design projects for social change. I see myself working through the questionnaire listed in every section of the document. Designers who are already working on several other commercial design projects tend to take up social design projects when they already have a solution / idea in mind. A great piece of advice is “Don’t fall in love with your solution”. The idea of “Begin with the end in the mind” does not apply as it definitely limits the scope for creative ideas and solutions for any design project.

    Thanks DI for a brief and precise yet thorough guide!
