Contributor Diehl, J.C. (mentor) Tassoul, M. (mentor) Faculty Industrial Design Engineering Department Design Engineering Programme Master of Science Strategic Product Design Date 2014-04-16 Abstract This thesis describes the development of an Inclusive Innovation Toolkit for the BoP Innovation Center. The development of this toolkit is completed through defining a project scope, conducting and analyzing exploratory research and developing and validating the final design. The Inclusive Innovation Toolkit enables the BoP Innovation Center (BoPInc) to understand the process of inclusive innovation and facilitate the core message of this process to small and medium enterprises. A combination of theory and practice by doing literature research and analyzing practical workshops and brainstorms with experts, provides the input for the guidelines in the design brief of this thesis. Results of the research show the process of inclusive innovation, laid out in 5 phases: Define a scope, Explore the opportnities, Develop a product plan, Implement an inclusive business and Scale for growth. Key dimensions for inclusive business develop during these phases: Route to Market, Customer segment, Value proposition, Venture building and Ecosystem. These phases and business dimensions are they key elements of the Inclusive Innovation Toolkit. The toolkit is characterized by the BoP Innovation Cycle, representing the process of inclusive innovation, and guidebooks with extra material to enable BoPInc to facilitate the core message of that process to small and medium enterprises. The facilitation takes place through a three day workshop. During evaluation and validation of the toolkit, the toolkit appeared to be very much alive among employees of BoPInc. The elements of the toolkit seemed to function as intended. For future use and further development of the toolkit, this thesis is concluded with recommendations. Those recommendations include: Test the toolkit in a full three day workshop Keep the toolkit up-to-date with the service and tools that BoPInc delivers Adjust the toolkit for a larger target audience of the workshop Subject Inclusive innovationBoP Innovation Center To reference this document use: http://resolver.tudelft.nl/uuid:c43ebcbc-19cd-45cc-abaf-ab00914b0ebe Access restriction Campus only Part of collection Student theses Document type master thesis Rights (c) 2014 De Vogel, A.R.
