Abstract

Over the past four-years the UK Arts and Humanities Research Council Knowledge Exchange Hub, Design in Action (DiA), has developed a model of design as a strategy for economic growth by supporting the full, staged process of design-led innovation. In this paper, the authors illustrate the initial phase of scoping which paves the way for product and service ideation. In this context, scoping is an active and open process of discovery using methods of co-operative inquiry to collectively investigate specific economic sectors. The paper demonstrates that scoping has the capacity to identify critical challenges and define new future innovation opportunities through a collective R&D process
