MaGIC Social Entrepreneurship: CapDev Session in Penang
“If I had an hour to solve a problem I'd spend 55 minutes thinking about the problem and 5 minutes thinking about solutions.” - Albert Einstein
MaGIC Social Entrepreneurship will be hosting its Capability Development (CapDev) Session, a technical workshop on 'Issue Based Problem Solving' - a methodical and logical approach to identifying and solving issues. Issue Based Problem Solving is a popular technique often used by professional management consultants in order to identify and deconstruct issues into its basic essentials in order to derive a solution which is evidence based and implementable.
This is a hands-on workshop where you'll learn about the different techniques and methodologies of problem solving together with professionals from the industry. It provides early and growth stage social entrepreneurs with new skills and capabilities to multiply the impact of their social enterprises.
To be a highly effective and impactful social entrepreneur would require a deep understanding of the issue that you want to solve, and it is certainly a daunting task. Issues such as education quality, socio-economic well being and rural/urban divide are some of the major topics that seem insurmountable even more established institutions - which often leaves social entrepreneurs with the big questions of "How do I go about solving this?" Come join us in the special CapDev Session brought to you by MaGIC Social Entrepreneurship:
Date: Saturday, 9 May 2015 | Time: 9.30am to 2.00pm
