This workshop examines the role of the designer as a facilitator of large-scale change and the messy and often political realities that emerge from this work. Through hands on activities and case studies, we will explore how design methods, such as co-design and prototyping, are being used at scale to transform organizations and to reimagine service systems that are only possible when designers attend to relationships and conflicts.
