The CO-design process of SPRING involved 3-phases: phase-0 allowed us to get to know the practitioners and understand the scene, in phase-1 we workde towards shared problem statement(s) and phase-2 aimed to formulate solutions to the problems.
Initially, the CD trajectory was aimed at developing and testing possible solutions to the knowledge mismatch between academic knowledge and the knowledge needs of practitioners. As the CD trajectory took off in month 13 of the project, a few fundamental things changed.
General round of individual interviews. These were semi-structured exploratory interviews to identify generic themes that would be interesting to address in the upcoming phases.
Problem definition(s). This section was about identifying, in exploration with the practitioners, what sets of common problem(s) they encounter in their daily integration practices. These were later labelled as “Barriers to Integration”.
Problem solution(s). Here, once again together with the practitioners, we worked towards co-designing a set of solutions to the aforementioned identified problems. This ultimately led to the creation of pathways to ideal situations.
Practitioners were asked to formulate 1) an ideal situation of what it would look like if the problem was effectively addressed, 2) what steps or actions need to be taken to reach that ideal situation, 3) identify conditions that are necessary to support these actions. We display these three elements per the theme.
