Follow My Lead - Distribution and Customisation

At times it may be most useful for an organisation/institute/community to introduce or distribute Follow My Lead as a resource branded by DVSM. Electronic distribution of Follow My Lead can be immediate and unlimited. 

At other times, depending on the culture of the organisation, it may be more influential for an organisation/institute/community to add their logo as Distribution Sponsor and/or customise a copy of Follow My Lead in colours or styles of their own.

Customising Follow My Lead

What does customising Follow My Lead include?

The following components can be changed in the customisation:

  • Style of front and back cover
  • Use of your organisation's colour, design and layout of each page from any of the design options available
  • Inserting your logo on the back cover (next to your logo will say the organisation name as ‘Distribution Sponsor XXXX’).

The following components cannot be changed in the customisation:

  • Additional text or changes to text or text order (throughout including front and back cover)
  • Allocation of text per page (text is deliberately grouped with intentional page breaks)
  • Concentric map of complexity
  • Acknowledgement, thanks and copyright as well as hyperlink to Insight Exchange (in back cover).

Under no circumstances can a purchase fee be applied to Follow My Lead as this resource has been designed to be free for any and all readers to remove access barriers.

An eCopy of the customised design will be hosted in the Resources/Publications collection on www.insightexchange.net

What is the cost of customisation?

Customisation is free. In order to reach communities as broadly and deeply as possible, the DVSM Insight Exchange team works in a way to remove all cost barriers wherever possible. Customising a copy is free as a donation from DVSM to take the ideas forward into the communities you serve. We are not able to cover print costs and these would need to be managed by your organisation.
