Abstract

This paper presents a finding on the application of socio-technical systems design to analyse community resilience and develop design goals to enhance it. It describes a framework for diagnosing the resilience of people's social networks and developing strategies based on network theory. It goes on to outline the methodology and findings of a case study exploring the application of this framework in analysing producers' collaborative networks around a farmers' market in Milan. Based on the analysis, the paper explores the perceived feasibility of this framework as a preliminary stage to develop collaborative services. It concludes by commenting on the wider implications of the framework to design for sustainable services.
