About this event

Although designers are increasingly being called upon to respond to today’s complex challenges and transitions, there is a lack of methodology to support designers in their understanding of a system for the purpose of innovation (Murphy & Jones, 2021). In this workshop we explore various disciplinary mindsets and the methodological requirements for a transition design process. Participants learn about and explore multiple tools to meaningfully frame a system’s complexity. For example, by using The Transition Readiness Profiles (Goss et al, 2020), Causal-loop Diagrams (Kristel Van Ael et al., 2016), Leverage Points (Kristel Van Ael et al., 2016), and Systemic Theories of change (Murphy & Jones, 2021)). Upon leaving the workshop, participants will better understand the methodological considerations when using and developing tools in system design and transition design.
