D4C is an iterative process comprised of 5 core stages.

The best start for the D4C methodology is to follow this order: (re)connect, understand, propose and validate, plan for impact and deploy. You can overlap the stages, change their order, and repeat as necessary: learn, evolve, adapt, just like a natural system.

For each stage we have developed a set of tools, this list will keep growing, so stay tuned.

Remember that the (re)connection step is central to all other activities, you should return to it as necessary.
