THE SMARTEST CITY: How Design for Policy and Collaborative Governance Can Reshape Our Cities: McCourt Executive Institute

Transforming Leaders, Transforming Policy. Enhance, Energize, and Expand your professional skills throughout the year with the McCourt Executive Institute. Participants earn Continuing Education Units (CEUs) and receive a McCourt School Certificate of Completion.

Dramatic economic shifts, accelerated changes in communication, and the failure of classic institutions have lead to a vast amount of global confusion. Previously, as seen in a number of sectors over the past several decades, design has been used as a systematic approach toward solving wicked problems from constructing city skyscrapers to navigating the early days of the World Wide Web. Public policy by way of this design thinking is the process of actively considering stakeholders needs and desires during policy design in order to effectively develop and create a course of action that attains a desired societal outcome. This seminar introduces participants to the concept of design thinking for policy by way of user-centered design as a means to facilitate both collaborative governance and innovative policy solutions.
