designing waste out of your system

On our journey towards zero waste, we learnt a tonne not only about getting rid of waste, but more importantly, how to embed creative approaches to designing waste out of the system in our organisation. Through a variety of practices such as User-centred design, non-linear and systems thinking, and adaptive leadership, we came up with an interactive, whole hearted and innovative approach to waste reduction. The best part about our process, is that we’ve come up with new business ideas we wouldn’t have thought of had we not decided to embark on this journey. In our approach, we’ve proven limitation really does lead to innovation.
