Read Audible Dark Matter and Trojan Horses: A Strategic Design VocabularyAuthor Dan Hill – Andy-palmer.co.uk
Amazing book A well written and well thought out book.Dan successfully argues that strategic design is actually a thing and the examples provided were relevant and worthy of independent follow up.There are many takeaways from this book and as other reviewers have noted this book will leave you thinking for an extended period of time Personally, I was able to use some of the insights from this book immediately in my day job as an IT consultant so the book is relevant to ther fields of endeavor not just designers. While strategic design sounds like it may be another buzzword packaged to define a sellable consultancy capability, this essay is anything but A thorough and insightful look at the problems facing society, tools for framing the correct problem to solve and evaluating the ecosystem of dependencies Beyond that there are thoughtful elements of how design process can tackle some of the largest issues of our time in this new world order Fascinating and insightful from real world examples in practice Not the easiest read, as Dan is an extremely smart writer, but well worth it and inspiring. This was recommended to me and although I love reading and love design I get bored fast reading design theory and never get design coffee table books This book was different I found the language the most compelling part so it is apt to have the subtitle a strategic design vocabulary If you re interested in thinking and talking intelligently about strategic design and not sounding like a complete academic then just get it.

I think you ve nicely defined the problem space for SD practice and how we might go about delivering public good Public service IS too important to fail I think a big challenge and opportunity for strategic designers within the architecture of government concerns revelling in complexity and avoiding path dependency Extremely complex systems overlaid on complicated systems, like energy or agriculture require deep technical knowledge and context gaining expertise Rarely do we find this on teams and certainly not with one designer.Outstanding read, thank you for writing this. Here Dan Hill proposes a rethink of the strategy design and designers use in effecting change at all scales He is particularly interested in shaping policy and complex systems Luckily, the ideas in Dark Matter serve as a nice call to designers posture in general I found it to be eminently readable and highly enjoyable Get the sample, realize you are highlighting half of the passages and buy the book. This is brilliant, but difficult to understand Actually, this book and its contents force you to feel rather than understand Other authors, pioneers in this hopefully emerging new way of thinking and behaving are Ivan Illich, Thomas Friedman, Mihai Nadin, etc Deal with complexity or complexity will deal with you.
