Mapping service design and policy design

In this post, Andrea Siodmok shares the work done by the UK Policy Lab to map two frameworks which set out the different styles of government intervention when we are faced with a policy problem.

‘Having delivered many projects now across different departments [in policy Lab], it is not surprising that we have started to notice patterns. As a result we have begun mapping some broader frameworks which we are testing further. In this blog I wanted to share two of the frameworks we are currently using that relate to policy practice and design practice.’

I have to admit that it took me a couple of reads to get my head around this but now I have it has really taken my thinking and practice on design in policy to another level. I can totally see how this framework can help those of us facilitating policy design activities and I look forward to being part of it’s development in the future.
