DESIGN THINKING AND METHODS – WHY?It catalyses people to innovate and see opportunities in a new way…creates a virtuous circle of learning - helps us to share abstract ideasand to spot the promising connections between things.. enables us toescape the constraints dominating bureaucracies and to avoid pitfalls oftraditional boarders.By quickly developing multiple perspectives and integrating strategic intent withexecution, strategic design advances society‟s ability to work in integratedfashion with complex issues in dynamic context.Design methods can help governments and public authorities, who traditionallyspend billions on research and development , to invest in themselves bydeveloping new ways of tackling wicked problems and creating publicinnovation.Best of all, strategic design allows people to act while the government facilitates .

TACKLING WICKED PROBLEMS AND CREATING PUBLIC INNOVATION A lot more of creative and systemicA bit less of the same thinking, tem effort, and strategic design
http://www.dexigner.com/directory/detail/19311.html Helsinki Design Lab is an initiative by Sitra, The Finnish Innovation Fund, to advance strategic design as a way to re- examine, re-think, and re-design the systems weve inherited from the past. We assist decision-makers to view challenges from a big-picture perspective, and provide guidance toward more complete solutions that consider all aspects of a problemhttp://www.dexigner.com/news/24189 “STRATEGIC DESIGN IS A WAY TO SPECIFY THE INTENTIONS THAT WE WANT TO ACCOMPLISH AND STEWARD EFFORTS TOWARDS THE REALISATION OF THOSE AIMS.”

Creativity and Design
Can Local and regional authorities BeCreative and design?
CanPolicymakers and civil servants BeCreative and design?
Can Citizens and users BeCreative and design?
Can You BeCreative and design?
Creativity is an ability to think up and designnew services and inventions, produce works of art, or solve problems in new ways, or develop an idea based on an original, novel or unconventional approach
Creativity is theroad less travelledbut one we need toexplore to get to a better and more innovative place

REGIONS AND CITIES ARE PLACES FOR LIFE.. There people and organisations encounter and solve major societal challenges • The Synergise Finland development project (Sitra) is an example of how these elements where present when addressing the concept of new work and the idea of new demography. Immediate democracy is based on increased openness and the flexibility of administration; it means that operations are spontaneously introduced by the public. The New Democracy forum experimented with participatory budgeting, crowd sourcing of information requests and a social hub, where people can meet and work together. • www.sitra.fi/uusi-demokratia • http://ominvoimin.com/ominvoimin-raportti-valmistui/http://iftf.me/public/SR-1352_Rockefeller_Map_reader.pdf
