As you may have heard during the global gathering, Open Food France has handed over the “commercial” management of the Open Food software to a cooperative called CoopCircuits, and will focus on the production of open source tools and knowledge serving the efficiency and multiplication of short food supply chains.
With this in mind, we are going to start carrying out case studies of short food supply chains in France, the aim of which is to better understand the ecosystem, share good recipes, avoid mistakes - and make Open Food a key partner for project managers.
These case studies will take the form of - long - interviews with the managers of short food supply chains. We have written the accompanying facilitation guide, which is not intended to be strictly followed, but provides a framework for the discussions and will allow a certain homogeneity / comparability in case studies.
We were thinking that it might be interesting to have a common international framework/template for case studies, so that we could also relay inspiring cases from abroad.
What do you think about this idea? How do you find this guide? Maybe some of you have already worked on facilitation guides and could share them? Do you have any process ideas for sharing inspiring examples from one OFN community to another?
We would be very happy to discuss these topics with you, on this forum or via a call?
