Vaccine Ventures

Linksbridge worked with a global-health oriented team within a large  foundation to re-imagine the way the team partners across its internal and  external stakeholders to effectively identify, investigate, and  pursue global  health-related investments around the world.

The Linksbridge team familiarized itself with the team’s current processes and  procedures, then conducted extensive stakeholder interviews to identify areas  for change and improvement. With the client, we created a refreshed operating  model and – rather than providing only a written set of recommendations –  created a ‘board game’ that provides a visual and tactile representation of the operating model. Players enact a hypothetical investment opportunity and go through the steps – and the occasional setbacks – necessary to reach a successful investment outcome.

In engaging individuals with the operating model in new or unexpected ways, the project was able to better inform key players about their roles and responsibilities throughout the process.
