    • Your guide to solving complex problems with communities using co-design

"Let's co-design it!"

Here's your step by step guide on how to implement an Authentic Co-design process

Have you ever been in a meeting and heard someone say  "Let's co-design it" or "We should do some co-design"? 


Maybe you've been involved in a 'co-design' process but have been a bit sceptical if the process is actually co-design at all. 


Maybe you have been tasked with co-designing a solution to a complex problem with a range of stakeholders and you're just not sure where to start. 

If any of those scenarios sound familiar then the Authentic Co-design Implementation Manual is the resource for you.

This is the first resource to outline the co-design process and offer a 6 step implementation process. 

Here's what you get: 

  • 90 pages of co-design help written by experts in the field.  
  • Introduction to the history and theory of co-design. 
  • 5 principles of co-design. 
  • 6 step implementation process.
  • A handy checklist for each step 
  • The common challenges to expect and how to manage them. 

Your new manual will be delivered via a digital download.
