About the session

Design projects do not succeed in a vacuum; successful projects are technically sound, but also take account of the prevailing ecosystem. If you haven't understood the ecosystem you operate in, your project is likely to fail.

Successful design projects in the public sector require more than just skill in design methodologies, it needs self-awareness, situational and contextual alertness, and a clear view of the ecosystem in which you are operating.

Malcolm shares his insights after 10 years leading the Northern Ireland Innovation Lab.
