During the process the organization and its users seek solutions that support daily activities. Growing Season® uses Co-Design methods in all phases of the process.
The Co-Design process happens in close co-operation with the customer:
In the Analysis phase the data from participatory methods is grouped. The data covers five aspects:
Material is sorted into five visual “seeds”, which guarantees that analyzed data is a clearly understandable basis for decisions. The analysis seeks for links and cause-and-effect relationships.
The result is an objective view of the needs of users and the goal of the organization.
The studies show that Co-Design adds the feelings of well-being, individual ownership and appreciation. It can help to overcome the changes in organization and support a positive attitude towards change. It also adds commitment to the organizational. User-driven thinking and inclusion can become a part of the organization’s daily operating culture.
As a result, the process offers clearly recorded material for further development. The analyzed data is objective and equal.
