As practitioners who are in roles that can make a difference to lives beyond your immediate selves, there are several instances where you might have loved to get a little practical advice and do-it-yourself information on topics that are critical but not necessarily "taught".
niiti team members have been working extensively in the corporate and social sector around strategy, implementation, marketing, research, analysis and measurement, and we have learnt "how to" do things better through our collective experience. So we decided to spread the love a little and have created the niiti doer's labs.Doer's Labs help the practitioner (Doer) interested in sustainable and socially relevant business practices to develop necessary skill sets and access to easy-to-use and efficient tool kits.
We conduct these workshops in a time-efficient, interactive format. Call us if you are interested in any of the topics below or have another topic in mind but didn't know whom to ask.
Doer's Labs Capacity Building programme looks at topics that are relevant to socially conscious professionals like good corporate governance, diversity, social impact measurement, community mobilisation and engagement, etc. and develop content and time-efficient workshops for them to develop necessary skill sets. The Doer's Labs participant goes back from these workshops with a ready-to-use set of tools and skills that are ready for deployment.
Doer's Labs Do-It-Yourself Tools is intended to be a set of interesting technology platforms and tools that are developed by niiti in partnership with subject matter expertsto help socially conscious professionals leverage technology for developing sustainable solutions for lasting social change. Some of the areas that we are developing these tools include HR, Decision making, Monitoring and Project Management, Evaluation and Reporting, etc. Watch this space for updates.
Doer's Labs Research Tools leverage standard research methodologies like surveys, analytics and reviews that can be beneficial for professionals to reference and use in their programmes. We are working on summarising some Research Tools in the areas of employability, water and sanitation, gender safety and CSR reporting that we believe can help professionals in their larger quest for creating social impact.
