Human Systems

Drag image to reposition📡Human SystemsHuman Systems is a network of people who care about designing better social systems. We run a club where social designers get feedback on their designs. We have trainings and a methodology for social designers. And you can talk to us about everything from ritual design to organizational process change to social app redesign (see below).Social SystemsHuman Systems is for designers of social systems: systems made of people, where there are codified and mutually understood roles and responsibilities. These designs can range from dinner table conversation games to social networks and global governance structures.Examples of Social Systems

The Social Design ClubEvery week we host an online event where someone presents a social design and gets feedback. Soon we’ll add presentations of successful and interesting social designs, and debates about what kind of social designs will best serve society.Last week Malcolm Ocean presented social features for a work tracking platform. This week, Ed Sapiera presents a next generation online video platform. You can RSVP for our next meeting at thestoa.ca.🌈The SDC is a collaboration between Human Systems, the Stoa, and Ḟreyjạ.Trainings and MethodologyWe also teach a method for designing social systems that focuses on human values, on the evolution of social norms in a system, and on the structural features which make it easier or harder for participants in a system to live and interact in the ways they value.•Learn to precisely articulate values—yours and those of others— and see when and how they are crowded out by other motivations and situational factors.•Redesign systems (workplaces, schools, family structures, social apps, etc) so as to support meaningful lives, interactions, and work. Use the HS Redesign Method.•Make rituals, games, group practices, organizational policies, institutions, or social technologies around values that are important to your community but lack space for full expression.•Join a vibrant and diverse network of meaning-first designers, and collaborate on your designs.

Redesign Method

Imagine redesigning — News Feed, Family Dinners, Classroom Workgroups🌈We’ve been improving the Human Systems trainings for the last 3 years. Our school has trained 300+ well-positioned product people in our design methods and metrics. Our alumni have applied our methods at Facebook, Github and Apple; they’ve changed product direction at startups, and redesigned smaller systems like schools, co-living settlements, and families.🚀Learn more at 😎HS101 Deluxe.Talk to UsDepartment of Ritual Design•Hire help for a thorny ritual design task. Members of the Department of Ritual Design create customized rituals based on what is meaningful to the people involved. They start by articulating values in an interview. Then they design a custom ritual that supports participants in showing up in ways they find inspiring.👉Learn more at the 🌱Department of Ritual Design Design of Org Processes and Governance•Hire people to think about org change and flag values at risk. You can now hire HS-trained and certified teams to add to your organizational change process. These teams will assess the impact of potential features or redesigns on the values of users or workers. These “Values-at-Risk Assessments” will surface important values in the user or worker population that could be suppressed by an organizational change. The teams will present these potentially suppressed values, along with actionable steps that could be taken for each value at risk.👉Learn more at the 💼Design of Org Processes & Governance Dept Design of Social Apps and Environments•Hire people to join a design process and flag values at risk.
