The Social is the Thing: Taking a Designerly Approach to Local Government Strategic Planning and Evaluation

Research output: Other contribution to conferencePresentation onlypeer-review

Abstract

Empowering local communities in the creation of strategic planning can play a significant role in solving community-based problems. This paper discusses how our research team implemented a range of design methods to elevate the lived experiences, goals, and aspirations of local community stakeholders in the creation of a local government cultural plan. Combining elements of Harvard’s Public Policy Design Arc, Co-Design and Design Thinking, we have been developing a framework for community-driven strategic planning, and testing and iterating it alongside community. This paper explains the different elements of the framework and offer suggestions for further development.
