Jason commented on Appreciative Inquiry

Hi, Ashley!

Thanks for your interest. We feel like our idea is so flexible, it would be most practical to create a QFD for deployment. We would research the traits of a post-tragedy community necessary to employ a sharing economy like ours, and compare and contrast those traits to tailored versions of the implementation. For example, in a location where smartphones may be prevalent for a majority of affected persons we would recommend using that tool to carry the content of the marketplace of shared resources. If smartphones weren't available, an ascii-based text marketplace could be developed for older mobile phones. If mobile devices weren't available at all we might implement a centrally-located bulletin board in a weather-resistant enclosure. If there was not a predominantly shared language in a particular community, we might implement a pictorial system of communication. But in all 4 of these example implementations the concept of sharing resources accurately and quickly to provide stability to education would be consistent. These core traits could be charted to inform which version of the implementation would be most effective given each unique situation- a Quality Functional Deployment as the engineers call it :)

Let me know if that's what you were looking for or if you have other questions!
