How do we create the space for venturing into unfamiliar territory? How do we get out of comfortable idea loops and challenge the status quo? How can we best tap into fresh ideas and thinking? And, in doing so, how can we cultivate a culture of experimentation? In 2013, the Packard Foundation began taking an intentional look at these questions, through a partnership between Programs and the Communications as well as Evaluation & Learning teams.
This Starter Kit surfaces highlights from our learning journey. It outlines steps you can take to identify and vet new ideas, and it details our experiences and lessons learned along the way.
