This page provides you with our Design Kit. While you may find many familiar methodologies, we try to organise them in a way, that helps you navigate the myriad of them and find what suits your intention and purpose.
You will find two ways to access our kit: either you search through the full database and filter for different criteria or you use the second view further below, search for a specific purpose and function, and we will tell you what methods we find particularly useful.
The IPK Design Process diagram provides some guidance in thinking about the design process. It points out the principles, the approach, the design patterns and instruments, functions, facilitation methods, tools, facilitation platforms, facilitation plans, and the process design as the final step. This is intended to help to plan and think about the design process as a whole.
Methods can be filtered according to functions, duration, typical groups size, difficulty to facilitate (level of sophistication), etc.
During different stages of an event we need to achieve different purposes. To do so, many methods fulfil specific functions. Each of those typically will occur during the Divergence, Emergence or Convergence phase of a process.
Here below you’ll find methods listed according to functions they fulfil.
