Event - Designing New Types of Public Services: Prototyping in Practice

Designing a new co-produced service? Want to redesign an existing service? Have an innovation service idea and want to test it? Want new ways to engage your service users? Looking to learn about new and innovative methods?

NESTA would like to invite you to a free Prototyping Masterclass where you can learn about what prototyping is and how you might go about putting it into practice with families. You will hear from 3 Councils who have tried out prototyping in practice over the last year and will share the benefits and challenges of working in this new and innovative way. These exciting projects relate to the challenging task of working with communities and families to tackle severe disadvantage and designing services that meet the needs of communites in different ways. The learning about prototyping and co-production can be applied to all areas of your organisation's work.

Prototyping is a way of testing ideas and concepts for new products and services. A prototype is a small scale mock-up of a product, or a test run of a service, created to explore its viability as part of research and development. During prototyping, an idea is developed, tested, improved and refined. Attend this event to find out more about how to use it and how 3 Councils are putting it into practice.

 

Thursday 10th November 2011, 10.00-12.30 (lunch will be served afterwards).
