ICT-Enabled Social Innovation
This is the site of the Delivery Innovation Team programme (aka Digital Inclusion Team) that ran from 2006 to 2011. See About Us. You can download the Team's Final Report. Understand the Team's mantra that "I = C + D + E" at Innovation.
All of the results of the work we did to use technology to transform front-line public services to disadvantaged groups are now hosted on this website under Innovation Resources. See Tools for a list of all of the main resources.
The paper describing the Team's methodology and tool for project investment appraisal and business case development, Waller, P, and McKinnon, E, (2013) “A Social Innovation Investment Appraisal Method and Tool", is available from the Appraisal Methodology page along with an example of its use.
Watch Think About It
Watch our video ‘Think about it’. It sets out how we can take the opportunity to use technology as a tool for improving lives and life chances or face the risk of increasing economic and social costs. That is what we did, and the movie is just as valid now as it was when we made it.
