Seminar: Methods for impactful innovation in complex settings - Case: Severely Ill Child

EGGS for Breakfast event tour – September 2022

Finding solutions to complex problems and working with innovation in contexts with many stakeholders is not easy. At EGGS for Breakfast – Methods for impactful innovation in the public sector, you will learn how we applied experimentation as a method for public service innovation. Sigrun Vik, Head of Health at EGGS Design, will share from the project Severely Ill Child, one of seven life events in Norway that the public sector is addressing to ensure seamless and personalised services for the country's residents. Save the date to join the event at your nearest EGGS office.

The Norwegian Directorate of Health is coordinating the development of holistic and seamless public services for children with complex needs and their families. We have helped them identify why challenges occur, the relation between them and explored new ways of working to find solutions.

About Severely Ill children - Children and young people with complex needs

The life event Severely Sick Children is a significant innovation initiative in the Norwegian public sector that will identify and suggest solutions to the needs of severely ill children and their parents. The goal is for them to experience seamless, personalised and predictable public services to support them in their challenging life situation.

The project is rooted in the digitalisation strategy for the Norwegian public sector. Across sectors, work will be done together to develop services perceived as coherent for the users - where the users will no longer be the coordinator between the services.

Complexity requires new ways of working

Finding solutions to complex problems and working with innovation in contexts with many stakeholders is not easy. It requires new ways of working. What do you do when regular user insight work doesn't provide the necessary answers? Or when you work within a vast system with many different stakeholders, where it is impossible to predict the full impact of a change, like in the public sector? You experiment! Experimenting as a method is about designing interventions and testing them in a real but safe setting.
