A Multi-organisational, Multi-methodology approach to a ‘wicked’ problem

Patrick Hoverstadt
17 January 2011

This session will look at some of the practical implications of working on a “wicked problem” which involved multi-agency interventions using multiple methodologies. As well as a number of technical issues to do with handling each of these three aspects of a complex intervention, there were also inevitably several softer prac-tice issues: to do with the engagement of cli-ents, the thinking processes of the team and the slipperiness of the problem set.

The session will focus on these „practitioner‟ aspects of this highly complex project.
