In 2018, Oxfam in Laos had the desire to develop its innovation skills for program and staff capacity development. Specific areas of focus were improving the relevance of Oxfam’s work, identifying social changes and adaptation to an evolving ‘glocal’ context, effective communication and Human Resource development.
EyeOpenerWorks provided eight months of support as an innovation partner. We started by organising a 2-day Innovation Festival for all Oxfam staff to familiarise them with what innovation is about through real-life experience. In the following months until the end of the year we coached and mentored the development of specific, innovative project.
