In edition #4 The object method

This edition of the briefing takes you through the planning process where you identify key objects, what they deliver and how they integrate with each other as well as the costs and revenues associated with them. The object method is a neat, structured way of putting the high -level design on the table for all of you to discuss and brainstorm around. And as you will see later, it is a great help with producing the business plan.

In edition #5  The community finance canvas

The  canvas consists of a set of community building blocks, each with a set of questions. The purpose of the canvas is to help you design your sustainable community and get to a stage where you can start to produce a financial plan. The canvas can be printed out or copied onto large paper and hung on the wall or spread out over a large table. When going through the canvas we let our imaginations produce a picture of how the community could be when it is fully developed.
