Newly introduced technologies fail for many reasons, including low user adoption, a lack of understanding of the target market, an unsound business model, and more. This resource exists to help technology developers and early adopters plan effective pilot tests that increase a new technology’s chance for success. Drawing from the concept of design thinking, this Playbook is framed by three overlapping priorities — viability, desirability, and feasibility — that ultimately inform technology design, product launch, and scale-up to reduce the risk of failure. These priorities matter whether you are looking to commercialise a transformative sanitation technology or wanting to implement an innovative sanitation program that leverages such technologies. In both cases, understanding the drivers behind these priorities will help you design a successful pilot test, including selecting a pilot site that aligns with your defined goals for eventual scale-up.
