Our societies are becoming more complex, dynamic, and networked every day. Public organizations and companies alike are learning the hard way that the societal challenges before us cannot be resolved as they were in the past. We need new approaches to these problems. Over the past ten years, an increasing number of government organizations, companies, and individuals have realized that special practices from design can help us rise to the challenge. At the core of this book are twenty case studies from around the world that demonstrate how design approaches can be used for societal change. These extensive case descriptions are interspersed with reflections, lessons learned, and tricks and tips for the practitioner, culminating in a vision of how design can revolutionize society. This inspirational book helps the reader to become an innovation leader in creating for the common good.Klappentext:
This handbook is for public sector innovators, designers and anybody who is ready to take on the challenge of designing the future of our society.
The unique approach that is presented here empowers you to create solutions to problems that are stuck, sticky or have always been considered 'too hard'. You will see that these problems can be tackled using thoughtful and sophisticated practices that have been developed by expert designers, transforming problems into possibilities, and organisations into networks of committed stakeholders.
This is demonstrated in 21 real-life projects that span many sectors of society. The key lessons from these projects are supported by 19 hands-on methods that help you design for the common good.
