With this book, we aim to help communities initiate and sustain local systems change. Experiences from a variety of transfer projects between universities and civil society in different countries and cultures are included. The focus is on the development of methodological competencies, which we explain along the Design Thinking process and provide with practical implementation recommendations. This is followed by a case study detailing how business models are developed from tested prototypes for social innovations and social enterprises and how business plans are created.
The book is aimed at anyone involved in working in and with communities. This includes students, teachers, and action researchers from academia as well as staff in city governments
or NGOs and, of course, members of communities who want to grow into the role of community promoter.
