My guest in this episode is Dr Pierce Otlhogile-Gordon, known as Doctor OG, an innovation catalyst, researcher, facilitator, and evaluator, based in Botswana. Pierce is impassioned by the space between transformation and liberation, and researches the complexity, evaluation, and emergence of design and innovation across the world.
He’s built mixed-method research designs for Fortune 500 Companies, directed design and evaluation strategies for six-figure clients, built and consulted on social change curricula in design, evaluation, and equity across four continents, as well as co-designing equity design products, papers, and services with international changemakers.
Here we explore what that space between transformation and liberation actually is, the issues of power dynamics of politics in design, and why Human-Centred Design (HCD) can often exacerbate problems as opposed to being their solution.
