A problem solving primer – DesignGov – September 2013

“Design is disciplined set of actions (and decisions) that takes you from a current state to a better future state. But it is not the only methodology for doing so. There are a growing range of approaches that aim to improve on the status quo and to create better futures and address the problems faced by the public sector.

Where should you start when problem solving? What role does design play? What role does innovation play?

DesignGov is seeking to leverage the expertise, the experience, and the wisdom of decision makers, practitioners and all-round talented people to collect together some insights about what makes for good problem solving.

DesignGov approached a number of people in our networks to contribute short pieces against the following four questions:

What one thing would you recommend when dealing with limited resources and competing priorities?

What is the key thing to remember when you are confronted by complex problems?

When you’re confronted with a difficult issue, where do you start?

What is your favourite tool or technique to use in problem solving?”
