WATER THINKING 2.0
How might Savannah Water Municipal Operations implement design thinking to foster collaboration with the local Savannah community to encourage water stewardship?

Workshop Design and Development.
This was the Design Management Final Project during Spring 2017,
it was 10 weeks long, individual project. The project began by gathering secondary research data from the local government bodies involved in relation to the existing water stress caused by the tourism industry in Savannah, GA. Then identifying the relevant stakeholders, preparing interview questions as per the varied field of stakeholders involved and lastly, conducting Primary research through In-person Interviews. Finally, the outcome of the project was a Collaboration Workshop where all the different stakeholders could share their perspectives and overcome the communication gap to address the water issues more closely by the Stakeholders Inclusive Collaborative (S.I.C) Workshop.
The project is graphically presented using 6-steps D.E.S.I.G.N Model process.
The Stakeholders Inclusive Collaborative Workshop was implemented with 8 participants combined from City of Savannah Water Municipal Operations, Local Businesses and Local citizens. It was a 100-minute workshop followed by the Participant Feedback.
Nurture phase is to design and develop the Insight Report after successful facilitation of the Stakeholders Inclusive Collaborative (S.I.C) workshop. This workshop could also be implemented for Energy Efficiency and preparing for any Natural Calamities.
This project was successfully completed and a huge shout out goes to the people who have been an immense support throughout my journey of this project. First of all to my Parents for blessing me with the educational opportunity, respected Professors for guiding me and educating me at every step of the learning experience, my notorious brother and lastly my friends who were always there for motivating me to fight and thrive to accomplish the project.
