About the Program

This program will:

  • Help participants move beyond ‘co-design 101’ foundations, into practical, project-based learning.
  • Optimise opportunities for learning to be applied in the ‘real world’ planning and delivery.
  • Provide coaching and tools that support participants to work through the technical aspects of co-design (methods, frameworks, processes) as well as non-technical elements such as mindset, culture and catalysing change.
  • Put in place a measurement framework so that learning outcomes and co-design outcomes can be defined up-front and regular pulse checks are taken

Whats Involved:

  • 6-month program with 3 full-day practical workshops held bi-monthly from July to November.
  • Four virtual meetings to provide support between workshops.
  • Evaluation Interviews conducted two weeks prior to Workshop 2 & 3 to ensure feedback is incorporated into the next workshop.
  • Practical information on how to build your organisation’s capacity to become a consumer focused organisation.
  • A local community of practice to share your learnings.
  • An Executive Forum to review achievements for each organisation and identify areas of further development.
