Rapid Response: Make&Go

This is a TOM@University Playbook Recipe, which explains how to lead a "Rapid Response: Make&Go" session. This activity comes into play during emergencies when traditional manufacturing chains are not functioning at optimal rates, creating shortages in the supply of necessary equipment. In a national crisis, government top-down intervention is 'Plan A', and mobilizing corporations to fill in gaps is 'Plan B'. However, as was evident during the COVID-19 outbreak, both 'Plan A' and 'Plan B' can fall short in the face of an exponential challenge. Rapid Response: Make&Go is the backup to the backup, or 'Plan C', a term coined by MAKE magazine to describe a broad grass-roots mobilization of community leaders and activists who design and manufacture solutions locally.
