Place-as-a-service: Redesigning Community Planning Processes in New Zealand

November 06, 2018 | Posted byPublié par : CIP | WTPD 2018

This presentation focused on how product development and organisational methods from the tech sector can be used to re orientate the focus of planning practice on the end-user—the communities we are supporting. Nick Williamson specifically provides examples from his practice as a local government innovator, leading a team to develop a highly successful prototype community plan in only 5 days using co-design methods. As a Canadian import to New Zealand, Rhiannon Barbour helped relate lessons learned in New Zealand to Canadian planning practice.
