Designing socio-technical experiments [adaptation from Van den Bosch, 2010] test repeat the experiment in other contexts give visibility link to other projects move from experimentation to mainstream SOCIO-TECHNICAL EXPERIMENT experiment as AGENT OF CHANGE experiment as a WINDOW experiment as a LAB BROADENING replicating and linking the PSS innovation to other contexts, functions and projects DEEPENING learning as much as possible on a PSS innovation in its context SCALING-UP embedding the PSS innovation in dominant ways of thinking, doing and organising SETTING-UP creating the conditions for setting-up the experiment INCUBATION
Temporal dimension in socio-technical experiments > Different phases > Different actors are needed in the different phases ( evolutionary actors network ) time INCUBATION SOCIO-TECHNICAL EXPERIMENT IMPLEMENTATION LAB WINDOW AGENT OF CHANGE
HOW TO VISUALISE AND COMMUNICATE THESE ELEMENTS?
System design tools SYSTEM MAP SATISFACTION OFFERING DIAGRAM INTERACTION TABLE > Adaptation of the system map and interaction table tools, in order to include socio-technical experiments characteristics
