Thinking what no else is thinking Thinking about the same thing as others do but in a different way . Thinking fluently : quantity and quality of ideas . Breaking problems down into component parts: slicing then dicing Discipline and rigor of logic Concision of communication: clarity رؤية الشيء نفسه كما يفعل الآخرون ولكن رؤية شيء مختلفالتفكير في ما لم يفكر آخر التفكير في نفس الشيء كما يفعل الآخرون ولكن بطريقة مختلفة. التفكير بطلاقة : كمية ونوعية الأفكار. كسر المشاكل أسفل إلى الأجزاء المكونة : تشريح ثم التكعيب الانضباط والصرامة والمنطق الإيجاز البلاغ : الوضوح 10

How to proceed? :

How to proceed? Define the core aspects of your problem as broadly and specifically as possible Ex: In what ways might we balance your private and work life ? Split your problem into manageable parts Ex: Time, Friends, Leisures… Come up with different types of ideas that will put your project in the best light Ex : Sports with Colleagues ? Build a foundation ?... Select the best ideas Ex . Sport at lunch time Recommend / Communicate / implement them as needed Ex . Suscribe! 12

To put it in a nutschell:

To put it in a nutschell Define the problem clearly (questioning...) Generate new ideas ( techniques…) Select the best ideas to convey The problem-solving process as described: But how to go from a problem or opportunity to getting our ideas implemented when it is about getting a funding or support for our idea? The mind tends to see things as a single entity rather than discrete events. The more you dig into one aspect of your problem at a time, the greater your chances to find unique aspects 13

The pyramid framework: Your tool for persuasion :

The pyramid framework: Your tool for persuasion Synthesis “So what?” New question in the reader’s mind: What? Why? How ? Coherence “Mutually Exclusive, Collectively Exhaustive” Pyramid of stones… Attributes? Only one stone at the top Every stone supported by at least two other stones Strong structure, surviving centuries Check that you are answering the question in the reader’s mind Understand the reader’s needs and mindset Single Governing Thought Action or reason Action or reason Action or reason Fact/Analysis 14 Subject/ Situation: My AIDS campaign Complication: I need funding and support Question: Is this a good opportunity to support? How do you know that? Adapt the presentation of your arguments to the nature of your audience: receptive or resistant?

Translating the pyramid into an outline on Word:

Translating the pyramid into an outline on Word Introduction : situation – complication – question – resolution (summary of the 3 main points) Major point Minor point Facts/Analysis Major point Minor point Facts/Analysis….. N.B: Make sure your reference backward when you start new section and summarize each major point at the end of its section ********** Conclusion: Aristotle recommends restates your main points and creates an appropriate emotion in the reader about it (e.g., next steps) Then sanity check: tell me a story! مقدمة : الوضع -- المضاعفات -- السؤال -- القرار (ملخص للنقاط الرئيسية 3) نقطة رئيسية قاصر نقطة حقائق / تحليل نقطة رئيسية قاصر نقطة حقائق / التحليل... ملاحظة : تأكد من رجوع اليها الى الوراء عند بدء تشغيل القسم الجديد وتلخيص كل النقاط الرئيسية في نهاية قسمها ********** والخلاصة : أرسطو توصي يكرر النقاط الرئيسية الخاصة بك ويخلق العاطفة المناسب في القارئ عن ذلك (على سبيل المثال، الخطوات القادمة) ثم التحقق من سلامة العقل : قل لي قصة! 15

Planning best practices:

Planning best practices Overspending is bad. But under-spending is also a problem – if you have over-estimated what you need, you've tied up money which could have been used for other projects Planning – estimating a reasonable budget and negotiating the final amount. Discipline – committing to work within the budget by assessing and reassigning funds as needed. Use zero-based strategic budgeting : start with no dollars in your budget and build a case for the money you intend to spend and Start with your savings (surplus) to minimize risks Minimal income and maximal expenses projections Provide documentation to justify your rationale. Include estimates, assumptions and calculations you used Monitor spending against your budget regularly. Know what you are spending, and if an invoice comes in that you aren't expecting, deal with it immediately . Align your budget and expenses to your social mission and expansion plan Investigate persistent overspends (variances) as soon as you notice them. Try to fix the source of the over-spending before looking for money elsewhere. الاسراف في الانفاق هو سيئ. ولكن في ظل الإنفاق هو أيضا € مشكلة "إذا كان لديك أكثر من التي تقدر ما تحتاج إليه، وكنت قد وظفت الأموال التي كان يمكن استخدامها لمشاريع أخرى € التخطيط "تقدير ميزانية معقولة والتفاوض على النهائي الانضباط € "التزامه بالعمل في حدود الميزانية عن طريق تقييم وإعادة توزيع الأموال حسب الحاجة. استخدام الميزنة الاستراتيجية الصفرية : لا تبدأ دولار في ميزانيتك وبناء قضية للحصول على المال كنت تنوي قضاء و الحد الأدنى من الدخل والنفقات أقصى التوقعات تقديم وثائق لتبرير المنطق الخاص. وتشمل التقديرات والافتراضات والحسابات التي استخدمتها رصد الانفاق من الميزانية بشكل منتظم. تعرف ماذا يجري الإنفاق، وإذا فاتورة يأتي في أنك لا تتوقع، والتعامل معه محاذاة ميزانيتك والنفقات لمهمتكم الاجتماعية وخطة التوسع بالتحقيق المستمرة بمجرد إشعار لهم. محاولة لإصلاح مصدر الإنفاق الزائد قبل يبحث عن المال في مكان آخر. 19

How to ensure short term financial survival and long term financial health?:

How to ensure short term financial survival and long term financial health? Fact 1: Most social organizations don’t spend enough money on capacity building and systems because these are expensive overhead costs Fact 2: Most social organizations are in a perpetual starvation cycle. Counter-intuitive finding: Social organizations with robust infrastructure — including sturdy information technology and financial systems, skills training, fundraising processes, and other essential overhead — are more likely to succeed than those without KEY COSTING PRACTICES Be aware of the difficulty to estimate fully loaded overhead costs (percentage certainty) Honestly assess the overheads expenses against the short term and long term benefit needed to your stakeholders and social mission (intangible aspects, timing of impact) Allocate overhead by beneficiary outcome based costing linked to your funder goal for the grant حقيقة 1 : معظم المنظمات الاجتماعية لا تنفق ما يكفي من المال لبناء القدرات والنظم لأن هذه التكاليف العامة مكلفة حقيقة 2 : معظم المنظمات الاجتماعية في دائرة الجوع الدائم. الحقائق غير بديهية : المنظمات الاجتماعية مع بنية تحتية متينة -- بما في ذلك تكنولوجيا المعلومات قوي والنظم الماليةوالتدريب على المهارات، وعمليات جمع التبرعات، والنفقات الضرورية الأخرى -- من المرجح أن تنجح من دون تلك الممارسات الرئيسية بتكلفة يكون على بينة من صعوبة تقدير تكاليف النفقات العامة محملة بالكامل بصراحة تقييم النفقات العامة النفقات ضد فائدة قصيرة الأجل وطويلة الأجل اللازمة لأصحاب المصلحة الخاصة بك والمهمة الاجتماعية (الجوانب غير الملموسة، وتوقيت الأثر) تقدير التكاليف على أساس ربط تخصيص النفقات العامة من قبل المستفيد نتيجة لهدف ممول للحصول على منحة 21
