Design For Care Published

We are delighted to see the NextD Complexity Ladder utilized in the just published book Design For Care, authored by Peter Jones PhD.

Always interested in the application of NextDesign, Design at Scale, Systemic Design, ie: design thinking in the context of large scale systems, Peter uses the NextD Complexity Ladder to set the context for the scale of challenges found in healthcare today.

With the NextD Complexity Ladder as an assessment backdrop Peter points out the still growing recognition that different kinds of design thinking skill are required to address different scales of challenges. We call this skill-to-scale.

Inspired by the NextDesign Geographies vision?

If you have a project in which you would like to use the NextD Complexity Ladder materials and logic feel free to write to us at kickitup at nextd dot org.

Workshops TWO & THREE Wrap

[slideshow=20]

We had a great group here in New York last week for Workshops TWO & THREE at NextDesign Leadership Institute. It can be a rather mind-bending skill-building journey and everyone worked extremely hard for three full days to emerge with their new advanced co-creation leadership abilities. In Workshops TWO & THREE, participants learn advanced innovation co-creation, navigation and facilitation skills applicable to the Design 3.0 & 4.0 activity spaces. These sessions are taught by leaders of Humantific StrategyLab.
