DesignedWORK is among the first professional firms in the world with access to humaneering. Humaneering is in development as an applied science that will enable organizations to make more precise and powerful improvements in operations that are dependent on people for economic value creation. Humaneering translates and synthesizes relevant knowledge from more than 100 science disciplines into a design framework that simplifies application. Humaneering's emphasis on human nature effectively complements engineering's emphasis on physical nature, making an essential contribution when work is dependent on people (e.g., knowledge work).
Between 2009 and 2012 DesignedWORK assisted clients of the nonprofit Humaneering Institute with pioneering applications of humaneering (private-beta release). Now with the 2013 open-beta release of humaneering, DesignedWORK can now assist any company with services to support their discovery, trial, and exploitation of humaneering.
