Due in no small part to the efforts of RSD organizers and participants (e.g., Nelson & Stolerman, 2012; Sevaldson & Jones, 2013), systemic design has emerged as a powerful approach to responding to major challenges and aspirations. I suggest that tools can be developed to make the approach more widely accessible, increase its impact, and preserve much of its power when engaged in with little or no expert facilitation. Such tools should be able to simultaneously help people design and help them gain design competence. I describe such a tool, called CHRIIS, that strengthens design actions and objects.
