What to expect

Introduction to the theory

During the training course, you will receive an introduction to the basics of systemic design and the framework of the toolkit. You will gain an understanding as to which types of problems or issues can be addressed with systemic design.

Direct application

Get ready! Most of the course will be spent applying systemic design to a case, allowing for practical application of the theory in a real-life situation. We will work in breakout sessions of small groups led by our design teachers as we go through the steps laid out in the toolkit.

What is Systemic design?

Systemic design combines concepts of systems thinking and design thinking. It looks at relationships rather than single parts: this means studying how different people in a system interact, understanding how different variables relate to each other to cause a specific issue.

This is why systemic design brings a set of solutions or, better, “interventions” which can all together reinforce each other to drive a change in the current problematic situation. 

After a systemic design process, you will know which projects to start, or what to redesign in order to create space for change (e.g. products, services, policies, procedures, etc).
