Deep-dive into Systemic Design 2.0

Recent interest in Systemic Design has resulted in the emergence of toolkits and templates that aim at integrating systems thinking with service design methods. However, we believe there is an imperative for a more profound and insightful integration. In the Systemic Design 2.0 Course by Arash Golnam and Peter Horvath, we move beyond the tools and templates level, to tap into the power of timeless ideas and practical techniques from the systems paradigm. This transition enables the designers to add depth and dimension to their observations, create their own tools for sense-making, re-iterate and examine design problems in novel ways, and learn better in and about complexity.

Date/Time: March 16, 2022 - April 27, 2022
