The Innovation Process
Activity 3.4 C

Assess partners’ change requirements

This activity will help ensure you have mapped all relevant external stakeholders and partners and assess whether your new solution will require them to adapt their own operations and processes.

Will you require any of your direct partners to adapt as the result of the adoption of a solution? For instance, does the adoption of a new shelter construction methodology in a refugee camp require engagement with other humanitarian organisations in charge of camp management, WASH and health?

In collaborative projects, you may find that the adaptation requirements may go even deeper for the organisation, into areas such as HR, legal and even organisational structures. Use the Stakeholder Analysis and Power/Influence Grid we explored  in the previous section to assess the potential adaptation requirements for your partners.
