This is a project I worked on as a project manager at Taiwan Design Research Institute in 2020. 

This project aims to develop the future of the design industry in Taiwan in a systemic design approach. In this report, we identify the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats of Taiwan’s design industry, and form a series of action plans for a more consistent ecosystem through co-creation with stakeholders in Taiwan’s design ecosystem. The essay is designed to help policymakers, investors, scholars, and students understand the design ecosystem in Taiwan, key challenges, and future plans. The outcomes are 33 strategies and 122 action plans, which will serve as a reference to Taiwan’s future design policy. In addition to these topics, the essay will touch briefly on a selection of broader systemic questions. 

- Stakeholder Mapping
- Workshops
- World Café
- Expert Interviews
