Time flies! It’s already only three days before the application deadline, and we’ve been spending much time preparing for Design for Government(DfG) 2015. So, what’s sizzling for DfG 2015?
First, we are beginning DfG 2015 with six concurrent workshops inviting a large number of stakeholders.
We’ve figured that the teams in the previous year spent a significant fraction of time to only get the initial contacts. This year, we are giving the teams with a head-start. You get the design brief during the first contact session, and will be given a week to prepare for the workshop.
We will use the Atlas Game developed in Aalto, that helps devise a project plan with the relevant participants. It is grounded on empirical findings and theoretical reflections from 13 research projects that have studied service co-development with different theoretical starting points and in different service contexts.
We are now trying to be touch with about 30 people from different ministries, municipalities and association for cooperation, and that requires quite a systematic approach. Have a peek.
We are preparing a deck of behavioural strategy cards for each team
Of course we will read excepts from Thinking, Fast and Slow and Nudge, but we thought this will be useful for ideation. Behavioural Strategy Card by the Artefact Group is today printed at Aalto Print Lab on 300g paper – it feels proper.
That’s all for now, but we will share the themes of DfG 2015 soon.
