Class Description:

We've all watched Covid-19 dramatically alter our lives in the last year - it has more than earned its title of "game changer". One of the more troubling aspects of the pandemic is how human behavior has worked against efforts to stem its spread. This is the perfect human-centered design problem, and one that this class will address using the principles of design thinking. This course is an intensive deep dive into the intersection of human-centered design and the need for innovative, sustainable solutions. This class will teach you to question and think deeply, to produce novel ideas and synergies between existing ones, and make those ideas tangible and visible to others. This interpretive approach stands in stark contrast to more traditional methods that are often driven solely by numbers, analysis, and rationality. As someone who is interested in advancing the common good, you need to learn how to use both methods in tandem.

Comment from a former student: "If you want to ensure true impact, take PA 5190. It provides a blueprint for approaching problems that seem too ‘wicked', recognizing stakeholders that are otherwise ignored, overcoming fears of failure, and finding solutions through the power of collective thought and action. The skills and tools I learned in this class will be useful to me for the rest of my life - they have helped me take better notes, conduct better interviews, tell better stories. Regardless of where you are in your graduate studies, and even your area of research, you'll benefit from PA 5190." - 3rd year PhD student, CEHD.

CLASS WILL BE OFFERED REMOTELY. Class will meet synchronously-online in Spring 2021 during the scheduled time.

Who Should Take This Class?:

This class is designed primarily for graduate students who: hope to expand their ability to innovate; work in government or the public sector and are looking for ways to create change; are interested in cross-sector problem solving and interdisciplinary work; and embrace new ways of thinking about their research.

Full title: "Designing Change for Public Sector Problem Solving." http://classinfo.umn.edu/?wood0704+PA5190+Spring2020
Class Description:

How can public and nonprofit sectors address society's most intransigent problems? How can we ensure that solutions are relevant, and flexible enough to adapt to changing needs? This course is an intensive deep dive into the intersection of human-centered design and the need for innovative, sustainable solutions in the public and non-profit sector. You can expect case studies and practical examples; guest speakers who will share how design thinking has impacted their work; and the opportunity to apply the human-centered design approach to a real-world project. This approach - often referred to as "design thinking" - has risen to prominence as a problem-solving method that builds on the strengths of design practice. Featuring iterative phases and the emphasis on understanding and engaging the people and context at the center of every problem we encounter, it can lead to more meaningful and effective outcomes.

Waitlist will be inactive after 8/2 for 5190:1. Please contact Professor Stone at stone039@umn.edu for permission number. http://classinfo.umn.edu/?stone039+PA5190+Fall2019
Class Description:

"Leading across boundaries" means bringing together diverse groups of people from organizations in multiple sectors to work out sustainable programs to help solve important public problems. The practice of these leaders is integrative; that is, they help organizations integrate people, processes, structures, and resources in semi-permanent ways. They move back and forth across boundaries and build communication channels and linking pathways. For example, a human services professional who wants to transform her county's approach to homelessness will need to understand how to bring together disparate groups - from business owners, to religious congregations, to government agencies, to nonprofits, to grassroots groups involving homeless people - if she is to help her community develop system-wide solutions to homelessness. She will need to understand the ways that boundaries between these groups contribute to the problem and how to reshape these boundaries in ways that foster shared commitment to moving beyond the status quo. She will need to understand the unique contributions that different sectors, organizations, cultures, and communities can make to developing sustainable solutions. She will need to understand how to use her own formal and informal authority as well as draw on the authority of others.

This course is a comprehensive overview and examination of the increasingly mixed public, nonprofit and for-profit arrangements involved in providing public services. In particular, the course examines the management challenges and strategies involved in the development and implementation of these cross-sector initiatives. As such, the course will not only provide students with conceptual frameworks to understand contracting, partnerships and collaborations but will discuss and investigate particular leadership competencies and important characteristics of successful partnership strategies. Therefore, the course provides a mix of tools to help analyze aspects of these multi-organizational arrangements, and opportunities to apply concepts and tools to real cases and the students' own experiences.

The course itself is 2 credits but students may elect to take it for 3 credits which entails doing extra work beyond course requirements. This extra work may vary, depending on the needs of the student, and will be negotiated between the student and Prof. Stone. The extra credit work will need to be completed by the end of fall term, 2019.

Who Should Take This Class?:
Anyone interested in learning about how to work in collaborative governance settings. Those with extensive experience in partnerships as well as those with little or no experience can benefit from the class.

This class is the same as Fall 2016's PA 5190: Human-Centered Public Service Redesign. Students who took that class should not take this one. http://classinfo.umn.edu/?ongxx068+PA5190+Fall2018 http://classinfo.umn.edu/?cowan036+PA5190+Fall2018
Class Description:

How can the public and non-profit sector respond to society's problems with innovative solutions?

What does it take for the creativity in all of us to emerge in a participatory, engaging process?

How can we ensure that the solutions are relevant, co-created by and are meaningful to those that are using it and are impacted by it?

How can we make these solutions sustainable and flexible enough to adapt to changing needs?

PA5190 Design Thinking for Public Affairs is a course that provides you the space and opportunity to explore these questions and paradigms that may get us closer to the answers. The course is guided by the human-centered design approach to problem solving, commonly known as design thinking. Using this approach in the public and non-profit sector requires nuanced understanding of its fit and relevance. When done well, a human-centered design approach creates the space for authentic engagement in problem-solving, thus building and sustaining key relationships, resulting in solutions that are people-driven, adaptive, and meaningful.

This course is an intensive deep dive into the intersection of human-centered design and the need for innovative, sustainable solutions in the public and non-profit sector. This course will be interactive and immersive. By choosing to be in this course, you will be a participant, and not an observer. You can expect case studies and practical examples, and the opportunity to apply the human-centered design approach to a real-world project.

Selected topics. prereq: Grad student or instr consent. Student may contact the instructor or department for information.
Course was formerly PA5190 Human-Centered Service Redesign in Spring 2016 and Fall 2016. That course name is now a different course.

Designing inclusive decision-making processes; Not surprisingly, grand challenges often emerge at the convergence of systems, sectors, or global institutions. For example, the grand challenges at the convergence of human health, animal health, economic development and environmental change include such issues as global food security, emerging infectious diseases, climate change, antimicrobial use and the control of catastrophic animal diseases with significant adverse effects on global economies. The course culminates on Thursday, January 17th with an opportunity for participants to apply key leadership skills in a public setting with multi-sector stakeholders. Students will serve as co-hosts along with course instructors for a day-long professional forum to address a contemporary food security grand challenge that is also a paradoxical dilemma conducive to polarity mapping: balancing animal well-being and agricultural worker safety. This Finding Common Ground Forum is hosted by the University of Minnesotas Center for Integrative Leadership (CIL) and the Global Initiative for Food Systems Leadership (GIFSL). Following the Forum, students will meet for dinner, a Forum de-brief, and discussion of course follow-up assignments (which will be completed on-line).

Class Description:

Creating Public Value is a new course aimed at understanding more clearly the purposes and outcomes of public policies and other kinds of collective action. The course will explore the public values at the heart of a range of "sacred" texts from the US Declaration of Independence to the UN Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women. It will also focus on the public values are the heart of many historic and contemporary policy debates and explore what the common good might or might not be in each. And it will explore the connection between means and ends in the creation (or not) of public value.


Potential policy questions to explore might include, for example:

  • Has President Obama overreached in issuing executive orders on immigration?

  • Should employers be required to provide paid family leave to employees?

  • What should government's role be, if any, in regulating the Internet?

  • What public values are at stake in the public debate about, and policy proposals to address, climate change?


As these questions and others are debated at the dinner table, in coffee shops, in print and social media, and elsewhere, clashes over public values are often evident, though they are not always articulated very clearly. We believe that exploring the values that sustain collective action is important in a democracy, since the exploration can clarify what is at stake and also what the common good might be.


Purposes:

  • To clarify the public purposes and values served by collective action, including cross-sector collaboration, in democratic contexts

  • To understand the role of public values in historic and contemporary policy debates

  • To be knowledgeable about the important debates in the public value literature

  • To provide practical guidance about how to discern, measure, and assess public values

  • To explore how public value and public values might be achieved in practice

  • To prepare leaders in nonprofit and public organizations to articulate and uphold public values in media-rich environments


Themes:

  • How a focus on public values helps us think about what kind of society we want

  • How to talk about public values

  • How to discern, measure and assess public values

  • How to create public value in practice

  • How to deal with competing public values


Audience:

  • Graduate students and advanced undergraduate students

  • Early, mid- and later career professionals

  • Policy advocates and civic activists

This 4-day skills-based course will introduce participants to select integrative leadership strategies useful in addressing global grand challenges. Specifically, we will focus on leadership practices that foster collective action across diverse groups of people, including: 1. Hosting dialogue, debate and deliberation; 2. Mapping polarities and balancing paradox 3. Designing inclusive decision-making processes; Not surprisingly, grand challenges often emerge at the convergence of systems, sectors, or global institutions. For example, the grand challenges at the convergence of human health, animal health, economic development and environmental change include such issues as global food security, emerging infectious diseases, climate change, antimicrobial use and the control of catastrophic animal diseases with significant adverse effects on global economies. The course culminates on Thursday, January 17th with an opportunity for participants to apply key leadership skills in a public setting with multi-sector stakeholders. Students will serve as co-hosts along with course instructors for a day-long professional forum to address a contemporary food security grand challenge that is also a paradoxical dilemma conducive to polarity mapping: balancing animal well-being and agricultural worker safety. This Finding Common Ground Forum is hosted by the University of Minnesotas Center for Integrative Leadership (CIL) and the Global Initiative for Food Systems Leadership (GIFSL).
