Co-Design is a collaborative approach that actively involves a diverse stakeholder group (e.g. staff, partners, citizens, customers and end users) in a design process to create something that meets their shared needs. When done well, the Co-Design process combats polarization and allows for the seemingly impossible to happen: Alignment. So what does an effective co-design process actually look like? What makes it authentic, and therefore powerful? When should it be used and when should it not be used?
Max Hardy and Anthony Boxshall together with Lisa Attygalle, explore what makes Co-Design powerful. See examples from recent projects to illustrate the process and be inspired by the outcomes that are produced.
