EVIDENCING YOUR PROTOTYPE

What Prototype Kit Suits You?

You’re prototyping! You should be here if you’re developing some initial ideas about an innovation, or getting feedback on a rough version of your innovation.

The next step is to decide which tools will help you collect the evidence you need. Click one of the following buttons:

  • Basic Prototype Toolkit: Use this toolkit if you have limited time, resources or experience in collecting evidence
  • Advanced Prototype Toolkit: Use this toolkit if you want more rigorous evidence and have experience collecting basic evidence
  • All Prototype Tools: Select this if you are looking for a specific tool for a specific purpose
  • Lastly, if you need help with data collection then we have four tools to give you guidance on observation, interviews, focus group discussions, or surveys.

What is in the toolkits?

The toolkits have different tools to help you succeed with your innovation. The tools help you to:

  • ITERATE so that you can make fast updates to your innovation to make sure it meets users needs and ensure greater success
  • EVALUATE so that you can evidence how your innovation addresses the problem, and understand where your innovation is creating impact.
  • STORYTELL so that you can explain your innovation, plan for the future of the project, and convince others to support your innovation.

All of the tools are word documents that you can download, print, and use wherever you are. Each tool provides you with a description of when to use it, step by step instructions, and a template for recording your evidence as you go.

Now go ahead and pick your toolkit, or specific tool:

Use this toolkit if you have limited time, resources or experience in collecting evidence

Use this toolkit if you want more rigorous evidence and have experience collecting basic evidence
