ThinkWell is an emerging health systems development organization that is currently in a major growth phase. While our core area of work is health financing, we take a health systems approach that includes human resources for health, health information systems, private sector engagement, and research and evaluation. As part of the USAID Bangladesh Advancing Universal Health Care (AUHC) project, we are looking for a Product Development Lead. The AUHC project will transition the management of 399 Surjer Hashi Network (SHN) clinics that are currently being managed by 25 NGOs to a newly formed social enterprise.
The Innovation team: Who are we? Why are we…
The Incubator within AUHC project is responsible for technical and strategic advisory service to build, run and make SHN (Surjer Hashi Network) a sustainable private social enterprise. In the process of running an Incubator within the AUHC project, ThinkWell underscored the need for a dedicated team to lead on new product/ service validation, modern business development approach and re-defining way of work to support SHN’s double bottom line. Hence, Innovation function has been introduced to equip the Incubator and AUHC project with people who bring relevant experience from the industry to be able to advise SHN with all necessary business development support. Innovation team is a group of top minds with core moto of functioning as a team across AUHC project to help management make decisions.
You could be from a wide range of backgrounds, both those with advisory and business development experience and without, from a variety of industries. There is no typical background of a business development advisor, we look for the most talented people who have excelled in their field and each individual is assessed on their own merits. As an experienced professional and part of innovation team you will lead or assist in validating new business ideas through prototyping, piloting and may be in any other innovative way. Serving as specialist in innovation team requires agility, openness to learn and commitment to achieve goal in one or more key business development domains, e.g., Product/ service expansion, pricing strategy, project performance, partnerships, technology led solutions. You are the go-to person for senior management when it comes to validating business ideas, opportunities and making business decisions. Remember, we are here to help management make decision.
