“Working with Leyla Acaroglu in the Disruptive Design Masterclass got me to walk away from my own 'expertise.' It helped me to see how the craziest, most impossible ideas can often offer better solutions to intractable problems. It was a great experience.”

Lynda Decker

“The design process reinvigorated me. Visualizing systems integration reminded me of the solutions, and peer-to-peer collaboration reinstalled a sense of trust, vulnerability, and cohesion that completely redefined the possible.”

Jason Sandman

“The masterclass was wonderful. It provided me with a set of useful tools I can utilize to affect change in my workplace and profession and also led me to be more observant of how design affects our everyday lives. I have also become more cognizant about how much impact simple actions have on the entire system. I highly recommend the course.”

The Disruptive Design Methodology is a knowledge set created to help you make change in the world around you. In order to identify your own pre-established thinking, restructure the relevance, and then build new knowledge, you need to hone in on your reflexive, critical and systems thinking skills. You need to  initially establish what you think, develop a reflexive practice around challenging or questioning those thoughts, and then be able to construct new understandings from other perspectives and ideas in that arena.

Developed by sustainability provocateur and creative protagonist, designer, and sociologist, Dr. Leyla Acaroglu, the Disruptive Design Method is a holistic approach to complex problem solving that combines sociological inquiry methods with systems and design thinking approaches. It is a method of developing systems interventions that enact social and sustainable change.
