Consequence scanning – fringe by design event

Consequence scanning is a concept developed by Doteveryone which highlights the interface between technology and policy and fits alongside other agile processes in an iterative development cycle.

Posted In

The Scottish Government Digital Participation Team and Doteveryone are offering organisations the opportunity to explore consequence scanning as part of fringe activities on 27 June at the International Design in Government event.

Participants can register to attend via the Eventbrite

Consequence scanning is a concept developed by Doteveryone which highlights the interface between technology and policy and fits alongside other agile processes in an iterative development cycle. This is a way for organisations to consider the potential consequences of their product or service on people and society and provides an opportunity to mitigate or address potential harms or disasters before they happen.

Date and Time:

Thu, 27 June 2019
15:00–17:00 BST

Location:

Bridgend Farmhouse Cafe
41 Old Dalkeith Road
Edinburgh
EH16 4TE

The workshop will offer:

  • facilitated guidance through a Scottish Government project, introducing the concepts and mechanics of the new agile event
  • a walk-through of research relevant to responsible technology
  • specific training on the structure and components of the process
  • group exercises designed to embed the training that is delivered

Participants will leave with a clear understanding of:

  • how to use consequence scanning themselves
  • why it is relevant to their work and why it is important to carry out
  • how it can help them achieve their goals regarding being more responsible creators of policy, services or products.
