Project Sammaan at Yale University

in Publishing & Appearances

The Yale University School of Management Integrated Curriculum teaches management by drawing on the complexities of real business challenges to inform broad-reaching discussion and analysis. Project Sammaan was selected as on of the case studies due to its uniqueness as a design-driven, innovative initiative: in scope, its inherent challenges, the number of stakeholders involved, the scale of the sanitation crisis in India, and more. Quicksand communications lead and senior project manager of Sammaan, Kevin Shane, arranged and filmed interviews with all project stakeholders throughout India, facilitated interactions with various government officials in the pilot cities of Bhubaneswar and Cuttack, and led visits to slums to accommodate interactions with community members who will benefit from the Sammaan facilities.
