Bringing the WHO, HOW & WHAT together to catalyze locally-led solutions
In the field of collaboration, there are hundreds (if not thousands) of frameworks, methods and impact tools.
To facilitate coordination across geographic, cultural and political boundaries, we offer two frameworks that integrate business, community and technology development: 7 Stages to Sustainability (7SS) and Partners in Empowerment (PIE).
Through identifying the "who, how & what" frameworks within this growing web, understanding the primary functions of each, and how they work with others in a whole-system, we foster coherence and transparency:
WHO: 6 Sectors of Partners in Empowerment = unique roles we play
HOW: 7 Stages to Sustainability = natural process we use to co-create
WHAT: Goals, challenges, and/or opportunities to be addressed
Mirroring the inherently repeatable and scalable (aka Meta) patterns found in nature, 7SS & PIE are complete systems on their own and also reflect the larger system which they are part of.
For example, 7SS is a process that encompasses and aggregates the many more "who and how" parts (the diverse players and relevant methods used). As it is universal, it allows for the variable of "WHAT" (needs, issues & solutions) to be integrated and driven locally.
One example of "What" is The Global Goals to transform our world - overcome poverty, and ensure sustainability - by 2030 .
NOTE: When combining the WHAT with WHO & HOW (6 Sectors and 7 Stages) we create a scaleable system supporting diverse gifts, needs and opportunities.
