EP 19: Investing in Work as a Learning Lab - Kieran Murrihy

Working with colleagues at his six-year-old Foresight Lane business, serious investment was made into learning and iterating, gradually building their craft in strategy, futures thinking, innovation and service design across education, community and health sectors and supporting a meme shift from machine operation to ecosystem models.
