Story By Numbers Episode 3, Part 1

Today’s Story By Numbers Podcast was so incredibly awesome, we had to split it up into two files. Part 2 will post tomorrow, both on the site and in iTunes.

This week, Ruth and I interviewed Mary Brown of Lee Alexander Consulting. Mary specializes in innovation and design thinking, which are both areas that many nonprofits can benefit from exploring.

In Part 1, we talk about:

  • How Panera Cares takes the soup kitchen model and flips it on it’s head.
  • The innovative ways that Goodwill continues to advance it’s model, especially with it’s Blue Boutiques.
  • If it seems rational, it’s probably not innovative.
