Practicing Parkour: A Strategy for Teaching Design in the U.S. Federal Government

Arianne Miller

To successfully navigate the dynamic, complex landscape of the U.S Federal Government while ensuring broad impact and sustainability over time, Design must be learned and practiced in a particularly nimble and creative way. It cannot be the purview of a small group of experts. Design mindsets and skillsets must be infused throughout organizations, informing everything from organizational strategy to the way people carry out their work day-to- day. Through our work with a variety of federal agencies, we teach design mindsets and methods by developing and fostering ecosystems of projects and practitioners operating at many levels of organizations, applying design skills of varying maturity, and operating in a diverse array of geographic locations.
