Systems Thinking and Circularity

Learn how to understand, map and intervene in systems to get results.

Designers and innovators are always dealing with complex systems, from organisations to social issues to change processes. Our work is never as simple as ‘solving a problem’, but instead involves mapping and understanding the systems we work in, and designing strategic interventions to shift the system in the right direction.

This bootcamp will equip you with the skills and tools you need to design and innovate in complex systems and get results.

Is this program for me?

Systems Thinking and Circularity is the right learning experience for you if you’re:

📚 An experienced designer who wants to learn more about systems thinking and circularity and embed them in your practice.

🚀 New to the world of innovation and looking to develop systems capabilities to boost your skillset.

🌿 A change manager wanting to understand more about how complex systems change happens.

🕸 Feeling stuck in your work on big, complex issues, and looking for new ways to make sustainable progress.

Our learning style is fast-paced, hands-on and immersive. You’ll be applying new skills and mindsets throughout the bootcamp, and you’ll walk away with a set of new tools to use in your design and innovation work.

What you’ll learn:

⚡️ Understanding systems and circularity.

We’ll cut through the complexity and introduce you to systems thinking and circular design as practical, applicable tools for understanding problems and designing sustainable, long-term solutions.

⚡️ Systems mapping and leverage points.

You’ll get hands-on experience with a new set of systems mapping tools, enabling you to understand what keeps problems in place and find the leverage points where the least effort can produce the greatest impact.

⚡️ Designing regenerative solutions.

You can’t ‘fix’ a system, but you can shift it in the right direction with strategic interventions: we’ll explore how circular design can help you to create physically and socially regenerative solutions.

This bootcamp will be delivered online via Zoom at 9:30am – 12:30pm AWST / 12:30pm – 3:30pm AEDT.
