Purpose and goal
The purpose was to complete the foundation for scaling up Forza Integration and to enable national dissemination of a solution for increased inclusion and reduced unemployment. By completing the packaging of the method, identifying a financing model and primary market, identifying activities for increased gender equality for end-users and having come a good way towards developing a sustainable and scalable collaboration model, we have come a good way towards the possibility of national dissemination.
Expected results and effects
The financing model and the understanding of the market and customer enable more efficient sales processes with better accuracy. The effect is expected to be financial sustainability for the method and that more end users are reached by the solution and included in society. The collaborative model that includes the business community and non-profit organisation is expected to create more possible paths into the society for the end users. The plan for increased gender equality is expected to lead to more female end users and, in the long term, better economic equality.
Planned approach and implementation
The project has largely been implemented according to plan. Through interviews with various actors, we could thematize and find common denominators in order to later go deeper into specific issues when needed. One lesson is that everything takes longer than you think and we were somewhat optimistic. Many calendars are fully booked for a long time to come, and it took more time to book important meetings than we expected.
