What is Co-Design, and Why Do It?
Create a shared definition of co-design, understand how it compares to related approaches, and develop criteria for when to employ it as a creative problem-solving tool (and when not to).
Setting Your Co-Design Process Up for Success
Identify the most common barriers to success ahead of time, and decide how to orient your co-design process to address them.
Who Should Be in the Room?
Unpack the word “stakeholder,” determine who you need to involve in your co-design process, and identify the unique roles, contributions, and power dynamics that each actor might bring to the process.
Putting It All Together
Learn to structure a single co-design touchpoint, determine which methods are most appropriate for your objectives and actor dynamics, and adapt the right combination of design tools to your context.
