Dominguez Thesis

  1. 1. Employing strategic design to improve social standards
  2. 2. Hypothesis <ul><li>This thesis presents the hypothesis that strategic design, a problem-solving methodology that uses abductive reasoning, can be applied to the challenge of providing financial support to a community center in a developing country. Traditional sources of financial support for such institutions, including individual benefactors, government agencies and international organizations have shown to be unreliable. Applying strategic design methodology to such a problem may provide innovative sources of funding for a community center drawn from the center’s own network, a network of networks linking numerous such centers, and hybrid local/global community center grown businesses and cooperatives. </li></ul>hypothesis I strategic design I nonprofits I proposed model I ADIC I project
