    • Success  factors   •  Community  ownership  and  buy-­‐in   •  Support  and  leadership  from  sponsors   •  Power  of  apprecia?on  for  what  you  have  –  not   en?tlement   •  Change  management  &  impact  assessment   •  Some  government  support   •  High  profile  patrons   –  Bishop  Desmond  Tutu   –  PJ  Powers  
    • InnovaBon  •  Using  mobile  technologies  as  enabler:   •  Home  based  care  workers   –  Consulta?on  with  medical  prac??oner   •  Nutri?onal  educa?onal  programmes  for  members  of  the   community   –  Interac?ve  games   –  RSS  feeds   •  Skills  programmes  for  disabled,  specific  focus  on  Deaf   and  hearing  impaired   –  Sign  language  on  mobile  devices    
    • BoClenecks  –  Appropriate  contextual  technologies  –  Lack  of  infrastructure  and  good  connec?vity  –  Lack  of  access  –  Social  issues   •  Poor  community   •  Low  cost  solu?ons  to  current  problems   •  Low  literacy  levels   •  Community  of  orality   •  Must  meet  basic  needs  first  
    • Statements  •  The  Living  Lab  methodology  is  only  successful  in  the  African   context  when  applied  as  a  real-­‐life  interven?on  and  not  a   research  methodology.  •  The  Living  Lab  methodology  requires  a  careful  plan  for   sustainability  coupled  to  good  change  management  prac?ces   followed  by  an  assessment  of  the  impact  of  the  interven?on.  •  Solu?ons  must  be  contextually  relevant.  •  A  dona?on  of  infrastructure/project  funding  without  adequate   training  and  con?nuous  mentoring  results  in  failure.
