It was this hallmark approach to idel and focus on the end-user that made iDE a highly innovative organization, one of the first to use a business approach to poverty. Tapping the knowledge of rural people. Over three editions later, the toolkit has been downloaded more thantimes.

Often, to counteract this poor design, someone has put a PUSH sign on the door. We would not have soldlatrines in Cambodia if not for the insights and design principles gained during this research.

We have a global in-house design team that loves to work with others to create stellar solutions. When iDE opened a human-centered innovation lab in Cambodia, it was the only lab of its kind in Asia dedicated to solving poverty.


Since his initial insight into focusing on people first, Paul Polak continues to lead the drive for drastic change in how designers work and think. One of his examples was how humans interact with doors.

The treadle tooklit requires the farmer to stand on the pump and pedal, a movement similar to riding a bicycle or using a stair-stepper. And Don Norman continues to focus on human-centered design, coming full circle to return in to UC San Diego as the director of their new Design Hcx. When you approach a door, if it has a simple rectangular metal plate, the door is indicating to you that all you have to do is put your hand against the plate and push for it to open.

The IDEO team brought their established design methodology, design language, and creative discipline. This is a map of a village drawn during a participatory session with local farmers, led by Kebede Ayele, Country Director of iDE Ethiopia. The pumps were selling well in some places, but not in others. The iDE design team embodies deep local knowledge, business acumen, and product design expertise.


iDE | The background behind the creation of the HCD Toolkit

The problem, Norman would say, is not that the user failed the door, but that the door failed the user. HCD is essential to our success as a world leader in building markets for sanitation and addressing agricultural challenges for small-scale farmers.

In it, he offered a consumer-oriented view of natural human interaction by exploring the links between design and human psychology. The HCD Toolkit was designed specifically for organizations working with idwo communities. The Gates Foundation connected iDE to IDEO, a design firm that had begun focusing toookit consumer experiences in and was seen as the leader for commercial user-centered design. He began putting this concept in practice when he founded iDE inutilizing it first in Africa, and then in Bangladesh.
