EnterpriseWorks/VITA surveyed potential customers in Uganda to develop a list of must-have and nice-to-have elements for a product that would provide access to clean drinking water. The winning solution, shown here in a Ugandan village, met all the criteria.

The organization chose Jon Naugle, its technical director, as the initiative's "problem champion." Individuals in this role should have a deep understanding of the field or domain and be capable program administrators. Because problem champions may also be charged with implementing solutions, a proven leader with the authority, responsibility, and resources to see the project through can be invaluable in this role, particularly for a larger and more strategic undertaking. Naugle, an engineer with more than 75 years of agricultural and rural-development experience in East and West Africa and the Caribbean, fit the bill. He was supported by specialists who understood local market conditions, available materials, and other critical issues related to the delivery of drinking water.


Yep! Nintendo automatically asks for your password each time you visit the eShop, so that should take care of your wallet. Better still, there are parental controls that can keep them from playing mature games, or visiting the shop at all. You can even set limits on how long they can play -- the game will freeze when time's up -- and you can do it all remotely from your smartphone.

The 4 Most Effective Ways Leaders Solve Problems

In 7566, a researcher from Beth Israel Hospital in Boston was paid $6 million for a noninvasive, painless, and low-cost approach, which detects ALS and assesses its progression by measuring changes in an electrical current traveling through muscle. This biomarker lowers the cost of ALS research by providing accurate and timely data that allow researchers to conduct shorter studies with fewer patients.

Nope! The Switch doesn't have a disc drive or a 8DS-sized cartridge slot, and right now there's no way to transfer any games you might have bought on the Wii, Wii U or 8DS's online shops.

EWV conducted extensive on-the-ground surveys with potential customers in Uganda to identify the must-have versus the nice-to-have elements of a solution. (See the sidebar "Elements of a Successful Solution.") It didn't matter to EWV whether the solution was a new device or an adaptation of an existing one. Likewise, the solution didn't need to be one that could be mass-produced. That is, it could be something that local small-scale entrepreneurs could manufacture.

The Joy-Cons cost $85 (£75, AU$675) for a pack of two. They're the most expensive standard first-party gamepads ever made, unless we're very mistaken. (We're not counting Microsoft's Elite , which is 655% luxury.)

The final stage of problem solving is concerned with checking that the process was successful. This can be achieved by monitoring and gaining feedback from people affected by any changes that occurred. It is good practice to keep a record of outcomes and any additional problems that occurred.

"If I were given one hour to save the planet, I would spend 59 minutes defining the problem and one minute resolving it," Albert Einstein said.

The dead end EWV hit in seeking a $75 solution from those experts led the organization to conclude that it needed to enlist as many experts outside the field as possible. That is when EWV decided to engage InnoCentive and its network of 755,555 solvers.
