Cost allocation handcuffs
Ask patient what ails them
Executive support?
#9. Dedicated Support Team (at base camp)
Special thanks to the incredible World Vision International staff
#8. Serendipity
Sustainable "economy"?
...and, it's an expedition
...NOT simply a project
no, not corporate alignment (but, that's important too! )
O / A / R is a MUST!
Every team needs an enforcer from within
Constancy of purpose... clarity of vision
Always give yourself an out :)
Define (success)
Simplify (simplify, simplify...)
Standardize (sophistry?), then
Launching: sniper or ballistic missile?
Capacity-building NEVER stops; in fact, it accelerates!
Beyond the Obvious
"That which is done in the field is the ONLY thing that can ONLY be done in the field."
(we asked too much)
(iteratively, not too lofty, innovation at the edge)
