    thinking
  3. Government as pioneers Agri Meets Design Design thinking

  4. Agri Meets Design • 45 organisations from the public, private

    and non-profit sector Design thinking
  5. Agri Meets Design Government systems and structures are fundamentally different

    than those of the private sector. Namely, our government is designed to perform reliably, not to adapt to changing circumstances... IDEO (2011) - Innovation in Government “ Design thinking
  6. Agri Meets Design In addition, the overwhelming amount of oversight

    from our government’s major institutions…plus, unrelenting scrutiny from the media and watch groups, tends to result in agencies being highly defensive and cautious. They are, therefore, missing opportunities to improve performance... “ Design thinking
  7. Agri Meets Design As a result, many employees are unused

    to taking risks, trying new things and creatively approaching problem-solving. Ultimately, we are left with a government that is hindered at a time when agency performance goals demand nothing less than extraordinary measures.” IDEO (2011) - Innovation in Government “ Design thinking
  8. Agri Meets Design “What we are trying to solve isn’t

    solvable by one agency anymore, but any attempt to work across government is shut down.” 1. Politics and miscommunication disrupt efforts to promote collaboration and innovation Design thinking IDEO (2011) - Innovation in Government
  9. Agri Meets Design “I stopped trying after I was defeated

    at every turn.” 2. Government employees have no defined process for introducing and exploring new ideas Design thinking IDEO (2011) - Innovation in Government
  10. Agri Meets Design “We have a new idea for delivering

    services, but money flows to what’s ‘familiar.’” 3. Without effective measures of success, government can't justify an R&D budget Design thinking IDEO (2011) - Innovation in Government
  11. Government as pioneers Agri Meets Design Design thinking

  12. Agri Meets Design How is it possible to overcome the

    barriers to innovation in government? Design thinking
  13. Agri Meets Design Government must promote a culture of innovation

    and unlock the potential of the people next door, down the hall and on the front lines. Innovation must become rooted in your agency’s culture... IDEO (2011) - Innovation in Government “ Design thinking
  14. Agri Meets Design [However] you don’t have to reinvent the

    wheel. Leaders in the private and nonprofit sectors are doing tremendous work to prepare employees to apply an innovation process that produces results in virtually any field—everything from consumer products to social services.” IDEO (2011) - Innovation in Government “ Design thinking
