REFININGMODELS& IDENTIFYING
LEVERAGEPOINTS
Introduction toRapidCyclePrototyping
Thegroupwas introduced to the concept of rapid cycle
prototyping and how to employ it for thepurposeof
building and refining Legomodels.
Visualize the convergent triangle, where there are lots of
ideas beingexplored.
At thebeginningwe canbuild ideas that are flimsy/
thin, but aswego through theprocess of feedback
and refinement, they getmore structured/resilient
(they havemoremass) andwill bepretty good
o Canbedone in tenminutes or ten years
o Version 1.0, 2.0, 3.0, etc
o It is not a theoretical exercise.We learnby doing
and seeing if what we’redoinghas any use to
other people
o By building themodel we test bothour
assumptionsANDbuildour constituency
Four rules for prototyping
o 80/20 – 20%of the time, you canget 80% there
(of your solution); get to thepoint where you
know enough to take the next step
Don’t let “thebest being the enemy of the
good”
o Act, don’t plan (delivering aplan vs. delivering
what is needed is amistake)
o Get feedback from the system (How couldwe
improve this?How canwemake thiswork for
you?)
Unleash creativity from thepeople you
engage
o Fail forward and fail fast
Phase 2
With this coaching, the small groups returned to their
Legomodels, and used the coachingquestions from the
previous day to revise theirmodels.
Phase 3
Six TB5participants volunteered tobuild a composite
model from the sixmodels developed to this point. This
compositemodel would tell the story of the current
reality of theECD system, as understood from the
collectiveperspectiveof TB5participants.
While the compositemodel was being refined, the
remainingTB5participantswere asked to journal and
reflect on thequestion: Givenwhat has been revealed
to you in the last 2days, what do you need to learn
or experiencemore inorder to fulfill your role in
transforming theECD space? The answerswill helpbuild
the learning agenda for the Learning Journeys inApril.
