Beyond designing : roles of the designer in complex design projects
Howard, Zaana & Melles, Gavin (2011) Beyond designing : roles of the designer in complex design projects. In OZCHI 2011 Proceedings of the 23rd Australian Computer-Human Interaction Conference: Design, Culture and Interaction, ACM, Canberra, Australian Capital Territory, Australia, pp. 152-155.
Human computer interaction and interaction design have recognised the need for participatory methods of co-design to contribute to designing human-centred interfaces, systems and services. Design thinking has recently developed as a set of strategies for human-centred co-design in product innovation, management and organisational transformation. Both developments place the designer in a new mediator role, requiring new skills than previously evident. This paper presents preliminary findings from a PhD case study of strategy and innovation consultancy Second Road to discuss these emerging roles of design lead, facilitator, teacher and director in action.
