Collaborative Design Strategy
A design practice for communities and businesses looking to
collaborate and grow in the face of complexity.
You're in the right place if you are....
Looking for end to end design work that uses innovative methods to create strategy.
A community looking to synthesize problem complexity.
An organization looking to pivot or reframe towards a new goal.
A leader who is looking to build an innovative and reflective practice.
Have a great idea but lacking direction and implementation orientation.
Struggling to align a team in conflict or disharmony.
Curious about using the future to design the present.
MY PRACTICE INCLUDES
STRATEGIC DIALOGUE FACILITATION
Holistic and integral conversations expedite collaborative dialogue. All parties feel their voice is heard.
More efficient and connected conversations align to determine co-identified goals and needed outcomes.
INSTRUCTIONAL CONTENT AND FRAMEWORK DESIGN
Tools for collaboration are used to frame and hone research and content.
Complexity is levelled off and sorted to drive a tighter synthesis of divergent thinking.
USER EXPERIENCE RESEARCH
Designs produced are in line with the needs of real people.
Communities feel heard and seen in designed outputs leading to higher uptake of use.
Looking both wide and deep, interdependencies are illuminated.
This whole system awareness promotes opportunities for new insights and a high impact understanding of the strategic levers of change.
SELF & EMOTIONAL AWARENESS
A higher level of emotional awareness is brought to interactions resulting in more effective communications.
Measured and levelled actions and reactions lead to a relationship built in authentic trust.
Tools to imagine or analyze the potential future are used to stretch our mind and establish a sustainable route forward.
The imagined future leads to more strategically designed goals based on legacy, present capability and future projections.
