The final talk for the 2022 will be delivered by Nina Terrey. The talk title is The Paradoxes of Embedding Design in Organisations. It is based on Nina's PhD research which explored organisational practices around adopting design as a management practice in the Australian Taxation Office (ATO). At the time of the research project the ATO employed over 22,000 employees and is responsible for the administration of taxation and superannuation legislation. Nina argues that practices of the public servants employed as managers by ATO resembled managing by design approaches.
The talk is part of the Engage with Ideas monthly series, which explore the relationship between design, education, and society.
