Abstract
This study examines the impact of a participatory design initiative on issue framing within a professional setting. In a hospital, a participatory design initiative was organised. Participants shared ideas for a more open and innovative working culture before and after the initiative. Comparing the before and after statements revealed a shift in participants' framing, indicating increased self-efficacy, empathy, and systems thinking. Ideas for change transformed from external dependencies to controllable strategies, reflecting a deeper understanding of organizational complexity and a commitment to enhance stakeholder experiences. This highlights the transformative potential of design training in empowering employees to identify and address challenges effectively.
