Mash-Ups

What is this?
Mash-up questions layer on positive examples from other contexts to inform and expand your thinking on specific qualities of your solution. 

 

When should I use this?
Use mash-up questions when you’re generating ideas for your policy design or in a co-design workshop.

 

More about this...
Similar to analogous inspiration, mash-up questions are meant to push your thinking beyond what’s familiar. Often, other sectors, industries, or parts of the world have come up with great ideas that might be transferable or, at the very least, inspire a new line of thinking. Some example mash-up questions might be, “What would student transportation look like if UPS designed it?” or “What would a FAFSA form look like if it were on the TurboTax platform?”
