Public Sector Innovation: One tactile map at a time

Feb 1st, 2017

Running a public sector design lab has its ups and downs.

Today was an upper.

Check out my teaser.

What do you get when you converge a Director of Design for a federal research facility with a history of Nobel Prize winning scientists, with an ingenious public servant who cares about her 5-time Paralympian visually disabled colleague’s ability to navigate the floor he works on in Canada’s innovation department, at the behest of a disruptive public sector design thinking lab whose job it is to converge ideas & people to solve problems for Canadians?*


Because innovation sparks at the apex of hard work, ingenuity, empathy, compassion, trust and luck.

Stay tuned.
