Purpose and goal

Kungsbacka municipality wants to create a test bed that involves several of the municipality’s departments. Avoiding organisational silos will provide innovators with better opportunities for finding other fields of application for the innovation than first imagined. This will improve the conditions for solving societal challenges and make it easier for other organisations to implement the method. The objective of the prestudy is to gather enough information so all concerned parties can come to a decision on whether or not to implement a test bed in Kungsbacka.

Expected results and effects

The overall aim of the project is to identify methods for starting up a testbed more quickly. The methods should be replicable in all of the municipality’s departments as well as in other organisations. The project should also make it possible to decrease the time it takes to go from idea to finished solution.

Planned approach and implementation

The prestudy will consist of six main activities: (1) Needs analysis, (2) Intelligence analysis, (3) Gender analysis, (4) Communication & dissemination, (5) Analysis & decision basis, and (6) Planning the implementation project.
