Activist and fundraiser Dan Pallotta calls out the double standard that drives our broken relationship to charities. Too many nonprofits, he says, are rewarded for how little they spend -- not for what they get done. Instead of equating frugality with morality, he asks us to start rewarding charitie...

Learning from Data-Driven Delivery - Chris Vein and Aleem Walji on the World Bank's Voices blog.

Given confusion around the phrase “science of delivery,” it’s important to state that delivery science is not a “one-size-fits-all” prescription based on the premise that what works somewhere can work anywhere. And it does not profess that research and evidence ensure a certain outcome. A few week...

Who’s monitoring your phone records now?

This time we’re not talking about the NSA. Incredible work is going on at the intersection of international development, public health, analytics, and cell phone data. After my recent trip to Port-au-Prince, a study from Sweden’s Karolinska Institute caught my eye. MIT’s Technology Review summarized it this way:

“A powerful demonstration of how useful data from cheap phones can be came after the January 2010 earthquake in Haiti, which killed more than 200,000 people. Researchers at Sweden’s Karolinska Institute obtained data from Digicel, Haiti’s largest mobile carrier. They mined the daily movement data from two million phones—from 42 days before the earthquake to 158 days after—and concluded that 630,000 people who had been in Port-au-Prince on the day of the earthquake had left the city within three weeks. They also demonstrated that they could do such calculations in close to real time. They showed—within 12 hours of receiving the data—how many people had fled an area affected by a cholera outbreak, and where they went. Most important, their work led to a model that could guide responses to future disasters. After analyzing data on pre-earthquake travel habits, the Swedish group found that Haitians generally fled the city for the same places where they’d spent Christmas and New Year’s Day. Such findings make it possible to predict where people will go when disaster hits.”

See the full article for more innovative tests of predictive models using cell phone data in disaster response and epidemiology.

I had a Digicel SIM card while I was in Haiti; I’m glad to know my data is in good hands.

Collecting and analyzing information from simple cell phones can provide surprising insights into how people move about and behave—and even help us understand the spread of diseases.

Welcome to our first "Service with a Smile" post, where we outline the process that DevResults goes to sign clients and support them before, during, and after implementing DevResults for them. While each individual process is tweaked to address the needs of each client, we look to ensure that we go through the following steps so that our clients and DevResults are aware of each other's interests. This is part 1 of this 3-part series, describing how we introduce prospective clients to our products & services before entering a formal agreement with interested parties.

Step 1 begins with approaching prospective clients. Introductions usually begin with a conversation with prospective clients, through referral or direct interest from the client themselves. Donor organizations, implementing organizations, Non-governmental organizations, and other types of international development organizations are among our target audience. Additionally, existing partnerships we have with our current clients give us access to future clients.

Step 2 is having a more formal meeting with prospective clients and discussing core competencies and opportunities for them to take advantage of from a potential agreement. We either try to meet clients in person or through an online portal, depending on the availability of the client. Questions we answer in that meeting include:

1. What are the client's core competencies?
2. What are the opportunities for growth?
3. What is the vision for better utilization of the client's IT?
4. What is DevResults and what can it do?
5. What are the particular elements of DevResults that are appropriate for the client organization or project(s)?

Step 3 is aligning common interests between interested clients and DevResults. We confirm demand by the client(s) in question, identify key players for leading the projects for the client, seek buy-in from program and operational staff, confirm funding from the client, and answer targeted questions regarding the application, data migration, and the various features that clients will be given with the DevResults system. We usually do a demonstration on the system and take feedback from the client.

Step 4 is the procurement stage, which may include responding to an existing RFP, securing unrestricted funds from the client in question, or building DevResults into a proposal.

Subscribing with DevResults guarantees participating users access to all of our features and all facets of our product. We also guarantee client support whenever you need it, as we will describe more in detail later.

That's it for part 1 on this series of "Service with a Smile"! Parts 2 and 3 will go more into how we handle your data and assist with you after your DevResults system has been set up to ensure future customer satisfaction with our products and services. If you have any questions about our how we work or wish to find out more about DevResults, please email us at [email protected] for more information.

10 principles to consider when introducing ICTs into remote, low-income educational environments

A blog post on the World Bank website, giving 10 principles one should consider when operating ICT programs/initiatives in low-income, remote educational environments. See the link below.

There are, broadly speaking, two strands of concurrent thinking that dominate discussions around the use of new technologies in education around the world. At one end of the continuum, talk is dominated by words like 'transformation'. The (excellent) National Education Technology Plan of the United…
