A few notes on context analysis and Design thinking from the final day of Åre Risk Event.
An approach for context analysis in managing risk:
The "local" history?
Your position in place/time?
The views of those around you?
Crisis Management (or Risk Mgmt?) as a Design activity.
In a fluent/ambiguous situation, Design thinking can bridge the gap between predefined templates for action (the rule-book) and an open, emergent approach. Reshaping concepts as we go: Could we judge water quality in terms of 'safe' when 'clean' has become unrealistic?
