Purpose and goal

With the support of Vinnova, we have run a project aimed at: Through methods for needs-driven development find out what we and other need to do in order for the target groups to be able to prevent cognitive risks in the work environment for principals, assistant principals and teachers. The methods show how one can meet the target group´s need for support in a faster and more accurate manner. Test and evaluate methods for needs-driven development. Few insights on what needs-driven development places on demands on our organizational ability.

Expected results and effects

The project clearly shows that it is possible to come up with proposals for innovative solutions with this method. The school´s workplaces have many cognitive risks, which are due to many different problems: The outside world is constantly putting new demands on the school External events and factors do not fit within the framework of the controlled work The cognitive risk increases when the work is not felt meaningful High workload has become the norm The school´s tools and physical environment prevent the core assignment

Planned approach and implementation

We shall start with the needs of the target groups in our business development. The project will work aggressively, exploring and co-creating with our target groups. We will work together with our target groups, but also with actors that we see can contribute in the work. In needs-driven development, we have had an agile approach. The method of working includes the fact that from the beginning you do not know which solution to produce.
