Case study -  Design-led “challenge” run over a period of months -  Bringing designers together with healthcare professionals to innovate new solutions to a recurring problem -  Overseen by the Design Council but open to anyone to participate and bid for development funding -  One team commissioned to develop and test a solution: PearsonLloyd, Helen Hamlyn Centre at the Royal College of Art, Tavistock & Portman NHS Foundation Trust, University of the West of England’s Centre for Health and Clinical Research, University of Bath School of Management, Tavistock Institute of Human Relations.

  • 19. And the impact? Early evaluation results show substantial improvement in patient experience Full results available 28th November www.designcouncil.org.uk/our-work/ challenges/Health/AE/ Value of design to the public sector
  • 20. Bringing design-led innovation to the public sector Moving from incremental fixes to systemic innovation  Design as an innovation method -  Traditional policymaking relies on data, impact assessments, and a defined policymaking cycle; but can miss user insights -  Service delivery in the public sector, whilst driven by different goals, can learn much from private sector best practice -  Design methods can support the generation of better policy and service delivery – removing risk
  • 21. Public Sector Design Ladder Mainstreaming design in the public sector
  • 22. Design in the public sector ! ! Wider mission To get the value of design better understood in the public sector so that more Local Government leaders use it as a change lever and it becomes a more natural part of the commissioning process
  • 23. Design in the public sector: Action Group Key issues will be explored through three working groups: Vision & proposition – to clarify what we what believe can be achieved through the greater use of design in the public sector Evidence & impact – to examine the gaps in the existing evidence base for the use and impact of design in the public sector Commissioning – to explore barriers to the efficient and effective commissioning of services and service provision that optimises the citizen and delivers new services in a more innovative and user-led way. Workshop series AHRC are funding the development of a workshop programme to help us reach a bigger audience. It will be intensive, regionally focused and build communities from different Local Authorities around shared challenges and themes. Starting with an intensive 2 day thematic workshops participants will be exposed to a range of useful models, design principles, case studies, live speakers, deep-dive workshops and best practice visits before framing a clear and grounded project they will deliver over the next 90 day period. 1.!Engaging!key!leaders!and! decision!makers!on!shared! challenges!! 2.!Facilitated!workshops!to! understand!the!context!issues! and!barriers!to!change! 3.!Invi?ng!par?cipants!to!explore! the!service!problem!using!design! tools!! 4.!Mapping!the!opportuni?es!and! aligning!them!with!the!core! project!goals! 5.!Shortlis?ng!&!selec?ng!the!big! ideas!to!shape!project!briefs!and! commission!out!to!design!industry! 6.!Support!the!development!of! the!project!and!suppor?ng!with! prototyping!and!commissioning.!!
  • 24. How will participants benefit Exploring common challenges: insights into how they scope, shape and brief design projects for commissioning around their own challenges Learning by doing: developing leadership skills and capabilities by applying insights directly to a live project Peer to peer learning: Develop peer group learning and professional development experiences that are project focused Design awareness: participants will be more design aware and more likely to submit follow-on applications to products and services already available. Measurement and evaluation: buddied with a Research Fellow participants will be encouraged and guided through how to capture and transfer knowledge inside and outside the organisation. Why it matters -  Increase adoption and develop local advocates -  Communicate a compelling case for design in the public sector -  Develop the market – create opportunities by raising awareness of other programmes and initiatives -  Uncover key themes and challenges to transfer knowledge, build awareness and scale up new services nationally
  • 25. An evolving definition of design Design as an innovation method “And so the role of designers is changing: A designer ‘tended to be solely focused upon the making of things in the industrial economy … [now] a facilitator, researcher, co-creator, communicator, strategist, capability builder and entrepreneur’” Yee J et al. 2009
  • 26. Design as an innovation method Discover Define Develop Insight into the problem The area to focus upon Deliver Potential solutions Solutions which work Design Council on design 1 Multidisciplinary design: utilising interdisciplinary skills to enhance project outcomes 2 People /user centered: using people as the pivot point to ground innovation and shape interactions 3 Measurement and impact: showcasing value and demonstrating benefits by measuring tangible improvements
  • 27. Adoption of design principles -  Increased number of organisations and sectors are adopting and practicing design: -  using principles across change and improvement strategies -  embedding systems to influence culture and transform teams -  adopting peopled centered approaches to enhance product and service quality -  innovating with tangible touch points to make customer experiences better and more streamlined -  deploying design-led propositions that differentiate and create market value -  employing whole systems thinking to reducing costs, improve performance, ensuring a valued return to the triple bottom line. Challenges and opportunities for design
  • 28. Key observations -  design as the method to define the problem as much as it is the means to solve it -  design is being used as the convener, shaper and facilitator – being consultative, listening and then finding a way forward -  design is integral – no longer just a nice to have -  design can be a shaper of skills and a leader of teams However… -  lack of a clear compelling offer is confusing the market -  language and terminology used is not consistent or easily understood -  design is not the panacea… how best to integrate with other disciplines How do we respond to these barriers to adoption? -  design is seen as decorative and informal, and not strategic -  procurement processes disadvantage (and bewilder) design agencies -  not seen as a safe investment for challenging social problems -  first instinct is to reduce (Lean) not to innovate -  complex organisational structures and politics makes it difficult and challenging and burn on an agencies resource and burn project time -  reputational risk of doing things differently particularly in a time of austerity -  lack of hard evidence
  • 29. Bridging the gap? Public sector needs to become more enterprising and agile to compete in a deregulated market place Private sector needs to shift from corporate to social values to earn trust Key points for the design sector -  keep it simple and don’t overcomplicate the offer -  unify on language and be more concise when demonstrating value -  start with measurable objectives and track the impacts to prove the results -  sell the benefits as well as the features and make it compelling and fit the audience understanding -  we need to ensure the quality supply is there meet the expected increase in demand -  be more humble - we need to work with others to do this!
  • 30. Thank you @designcouncil
