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?
Join Max Hardy and Anthony Boxshall together with Lisa Attygalle to explore what makes Co-Design powerful. See examples from recent projects to illustrate the process and be inspired by the outcomes that are produced.
Max works with leaders and organizations to achieve results through collaboration. His focus is on their toughest and most complex projects whilst also building ongoing capacity to collaborate and engage, across their organisation, with other organisations/stakeholders, and with their communities of interest.
Working as a coach, facilitator, process designer, trainer and strategic advisor, Max's approach is to work with people where they're at, understand their unique, and not so unique, challenges, and to co-create new ways of responding to those challenges.
Anthony is the Principal and Founder of Science into Action. Anthony works in the strategic decision-making space, often assisting decision-makers to align the delivery and content of strategies so they can be implemented and used… so they make impact. He coaches leaders and helps others see signal in the noise to cut through for delivery. He is a strong, clear, and accountable facilitator whose primary aim is to leave his clients with both the content and the strategy for their next steps. He has made a career of demystifying science for communities and all non-scientists. He is adept at co-design processes to enable clear decision-making that brings along all stakeholders.
