Draft policy innovation logics framework

A sketch that pulls together bits of various literatures to try to make sense of why evaluating things like Policy Lab is hard (in the conventional terms of evaluation favoured by civil servants). It draws heavily on Roger Martin’s work in The Design of Business (2009) to connect the different logics required for innovation – abduction, deduction and induction – and combines this with other research in sociology and design.
