  13. 13. Stage I – Table Analysis Rating the innovation on a scale of 0 to 5 (5 being the highest score) on each of the parameters outlined in the sandbox, the self assessment scores are:Team Renegade 13
  14. 14. Stage II - C.K. Prahlad’s Sandbox HIGH HIGH MODERATE HIGH MODERATE MODERATETeam Renegade 14
  15. 15. Combine Study and justifications : Scale of Innovation :  The Innovation is capable of being scaled up as it is relevant to a lot of government schools which have a high rate of absenteeism  IEC wants to talk about various issues. Printed books are not read because  Volunteers have different communication levels  Transmission loss is there  So this technology acts as a boon  For E.g. Aasha NGO works in rural areas.  Ladies are VIII pass who have to spread health manuals. Communication is difficult for them as they are less educated and they are not comfortable to talk bout them  Here the innovation can be scaled concentrating on for example Health Sector, likewise Sanitation etc.Team Renegade 15
