The methodologies utilized in this project is Design Thinking and Participatory Methods.
Design thinking is a powerful process of problem solving that starts with understanding previously unmet customer needs. That insight kick-starts a process of innovation, encompassing concept development, applied creativity, prototyping, and experimentation. Design thinking has five main stages; 1) emphasize, 2) define, 3) ideate, 4) prototype and 5) test.
Participatory Methods has proven successful in generating specific information on a particular theme, typically for a new program or policy where several stakeholders are involved. It might involve focus groups, multi-stakeholder meetings, participatory inquiry, action research, oral testimonies or story collection, which collectively serve as foundation for analysis.
