Just finished a practicum with the Commander’s Design Team for the US STRATCOM (Strategic Command) where another new design team is forming. It is great to work with the leadership of this group because they understand that design and systemics are more than that offered by fads and decoys carrying a label ‘design’. The context is challenging because a traditional military structure is not very amenable to new ways of working—such as designing or systemic designing—which are essential for success in a rapidly changing, complex world. The design projects are also challenging because of the scale and consequences of the STRATCOM mission. Great design challenge!
