Looking for casestudies: (Service) design for organizational transformation
For my Msc Strategic Product Design @TU Delft, im doing research into the use of practices from (service) design in order to help organizations envision or prototype new ways of working, empathize with empoloyees in order to find bottom-up transformation opportunities, etc. Im looking for rebel designers (or non-designer rebels) that have used their skills in order to do such things, or any suggestions or recommendations on interesting organizations/articles/people!

Although the book will only be published in September 2022, we gave Corporate Rebels Academy community members early bird access to the final manuscript. Here is a selection of their reactions to the book.
