Guide to co-design — Roadmap to Informed Communities

In this guide, you will learn what co-design is, see an example of it in action, and get some tips of how to apply co-design in your context. What is co-design? “Co-design” refers to a participatory approach to designing solutions, in which community members are treated as equal collaborators in the design process. Co-design is a well-established approach to creative practice, particularly within the public sector. It has its roots in the participatory design techniques developed in Scandinavia in the 1970s. This approach goes beyond consultation by building and deepening equal collaboration between citizens affected by, or attempting to, resolve a particular challenge.

What is rapid prototyping?

Fast. That’s why I’m such an advocated of rapid prototyping: a design workflow that consists of ideation, prototyping, and testing. It helps designers quickly discover and validate their best ideas. With rapid prototyping, you can expect to collaborate with managers, engineers, the users themselves, and other designers. The more voices, the better. Rapid prototyping benefits It’s safer Rapid ideation with multiple collaborators means there’s a better chance of discovering the winning idea. A focus on low-fidelity prototyping means that if you take a wrong turn, you’re comfortable throwing the idea in the trash and starting over. When time is money, testing concepts with real users early and often is your best bet.

Validate your business idea: THE LEAN STARTUP by Eric Ries. The Lean Startup. “Startup success can be engineered by following the process, which means it can be learned, which means it can be taught.”- Eric Ries The Lean Startup provides a scientific approach to creating and managing startups and get a desired product to customers' hands faster.

The Lean Startup

The Lean Startup method teaches you how to drive a startup-how to steer, when to turn, and when to persevere-and grow a business with maximum acceleration. It is a principled approach to new product development. Too many startups begin with an idea for a product that they think people want. They then spend months, sometimes years, perfecting that product without ever showing the product, even in a very rudimentary form, to the prospective customer. Design Thinking en Español.
