September 2008 – March 2009. Working with Larry Leifer, Center for Design Research

The focus of my research is Strategic Design, which is a combination of business, design and social science. It involves multidisciplinary teams working with complex and unframed problems. Strategic Design is a relatively new area in both practice and research. Nevertheless it approaches some of the key questions in relation to our everyday lives. For example: What can hospitals do to improve children’s experience during hospitalization? or What will television be used for in the future? The research is conducted as a processual research and the purpose is to identify some of the driving mechanisms in the Strategic Design process.
