Design-Prove-Scale

The heart of the AIM model

The AIM model is based on 3 phases : Design, Prove & Scale. Each phase corresponds to a set of activities to be adapted according to the context and the problem.
This sequencing in 3 phases makes it possible to move forward in a pragmatic way to provide rapid and tactical responses before scaling up.

Design

The user-centered approach allows us to understand the problem in its entirety in order to highlight all the variables, conscious and unconscious, which influence experiences. The Design phase is based on this approach, combining it with an 

iterative approach in the collection data, then the prioritizating the areas and moments with the greatest impact, before co-creating pragmatic solutions with all users, collaborators, users or beneficiaries.

Prove

Prove

The Prove phase aims to quickly confront the co-created solutions with the reality on the ground in order to refine and improve them.
This continuous experimentation, at the heart of the philosophy of the AIM model, makes it possible to build an Agile framework with test pilots in small areas or teams.

Thanks to this pilot, test and impact measurement phase, it will be possible to scale up the approach and part of the solutions to deploy a more global change to other teams or other areas.

Scale

The Scale phase makes it possible to define and implement a strategy for scaling up the approach and the proposed solutions, while taking into account the specificities of future teams or deployment areas.
By building on what already exists, the activities make it possible to accelerate the provision of solutions while measuring the impact.

 
Thus, the philosophy of continuous improvement, but also the working environment, must evolve to take into account these new dimensions. In addition, close support of all beneficiaries, users or users is essential to share AIM's philosophy but above all to guarantee the adoption of field solutions.
