Moving from the Collaborate Mode to the Connect Mode during the ChangeMaker Innovation Process™ fosters connections for learning and connections to the outside world for widespread impact.
Verbalize findings and communicate celebrations and concerns. How can I most effectively share what I have learned? How can make an impact?
In the Connect Mode, the design process fosters the ability to connect meaning to new learning and ideas. Teams work to connect abstract concepts to real world applications and they verbalize findings and brainstorm how they can effectively share all they have discovered. At this point in the process, the team already knows the value of what they have created. The end goal is to educate, bless, and impact the world through the implementation of the design solution by connecting with others about what they have to share.
Consider sharing your findings and/or project with others to educate and bless others. Who can I share with? What channel or platform would work best?
The Connect Mode fosters learning and encourages individuals to be good stewards of what they have been given by serving, sharing, and contributing with their ideas for widespread impact. In the end, innovation is all about solving problems and creating opportunities to bless others.
The Create a Roadmap method and graphic organizer is a place to start to plan out how to successfully implement a design solution from a short-range perspective to a more long-range perspective and how to effectively communicate and contribute while in the Connect Mode.
What might it look like to connect more content to real world scenarios/applications?
Who can you share your prototype with to BLESS and IMPACT?
How can you effectively share what you have learned? Who will you share it with?
