Spark

Toolkit

A resource guide designed to SPARK innovation in your organization. Take the Innovation Readiness Self-Assessment to see begin your innovation journey.

--

BACKGROUND

Funded by UJA-Federation of New York, the Spark Fellowship guides teams of 3-5 professional and lay leaders from each participating institution through a practical design process of empathizing, learning, ideating, and prototyping two innovations. The goal of the fellowship is not only to develop and test the products of the innovation process, but to use those two design cycles as a practice ground for learning the design cycle and integrating it into the institution's everyday practices.

WHAT PEOPLE SAY ABOUT SPARK

Rather than repeating “This is what we do here, come join us” we were given license to say “We want to help you find the spiritual home that you seek, help us understand what that is”.

—  Frank Jacobowitz, Temple Sholom of Flatbush

WHAT IS THE TOOLKIT?
