Purpose and goal
The preparation project aimed to produce a decision basis with sufficient information to enable all participating parties to make a decision on implementation. The project has clarified the needs picture and confirmed that a test bed would be of great benefit internally and externally and in the long run for our residents. It has also strengthened our belief in working with a focus on methods that can work in many different areas, and identified a basic structure for the continued work.
Expected results and effects
The expected benefit is to find a way to start up test bed operations faster, and which can be reused by other businesses and organizations. The first part has already been fulfilled, in that we have developed a process image that is used both to communicate the concept internally and externally, and as a support in the practical tests that have begun during the preparation project. The extent to which the material can be reused for other contexts will be tested and evaluated in the implementation project.
Planned approach and implementation
The project included six general activities: (1) Needs mapping, (2) Worldwide analysis, (3) Gender equality analysis, (4) Communication & dissemination of results, (5) Analysis & decision basis, and (6) Planning of implementation projects. The result was, among other things, a basic structure that needs to be in place for test bed operations to function optimally, and a philosophy for the continued test bed work in Kungsbacka: We test! We learn! We invest in those who want to join!
