The starting point for design researchers is that something is not quite right with the world. They want to change it, improve it, and create new worlds. They do so by designing, making and building artifacts that can help people to fulfil their needs, overcome their problems and grasp new opportunities. They build artifacts in the form of innovative ideas, models, methods and systems that people can use to transform their practices. But is this research? This book tries to answer the question by showing how design and science can be combined. Design science is the scientific study of artifacts as they are developed and used by people with the goal of solving practical problems. Offering an introduction to design science, this book will support both researchers and students in structuring, carrying out and presenting design science work. The text is basic and does not presuppose any prior knowledge of design science. The book offers novel instruments for visualising design science results, both in the form of process diagrams and through a canvas format. Read more at http://designscienceprimer.wordpress.com/
