TIP in Action

How are policy people enacting TIP to make change happen?

The TIP theory explains the three frames of innovation. TIP is part of the big, complex challenge to change systems and meet the Global Goals.

We are now setting new demonstrators, capabilities and standards for policy with our methodologies and projects including the MOTION methodology, Formative Evaluation and Second-Order Learning prompted by the COVID-19 global situation.

Each member country and partner policy teams have their own story to tell. With theee years of theory preparation under our collective belt, the network involved is now creating and enacting TIP to start to see how this pioneering policy approach can make transformation happen across all hubs.
