While much has been written on the case for better technology in the public sector, the same attention has not been paid to design’s place in the policymaking process. I wrote this book based on the belief that design can and should play a key role in the public policy space. In six chapters, this book provides an overview of the policymaking process as it is today, presents a reimagined policymaking process with design at its core, and lays out the path toward building a class of "policy designers".
Policy by Design will be available in print in Fall 2021. In the meanwhile, I've made a free PDF version available for download, which you can access by filling out the form below. The information I collect is for myself only and to better understand your interests as a reader.
