From a systemic perspective, implementation is an iterative process that must navigate the ambiguity of real-life cases and account for a multitude of perspectives, constraints in time, and resources. The systems oriented design implementation framework (SODIF) provides a framework for implementation in complex situations, with defined pathways and critical elements to consider. The understanding of the system’s current state, as well as the changes needed to approach a desired outcome, is improved by running cycles through the framework and exploring all relevant aspects.

However, in systemic change, the implementation might not have a definite end state. This means that supporting and observing outcomes is a continuing process that can foster the need for new cycles. Implementation becomes a process that must navigate ambiguity and balance many factors, such as multiple perspectives, time, resources, and scale, with the current and future state of the system.

SODIF was developed as part of the Executive Master of Systems Oriented Design at the Oslo School of Architecture and Design, as part of Module 7, “SOD as a method for involvement and implementation of concepts.” The authors submitted the framework as a group assessment for the module and further refined it for this RSD12 poster presentation.
