On this page you can find two sources that will get you informed about the theoretical background of the Wicked Problems Plaza.
Our publication 'Wicked Problems Plaza: principles and practices for effective stakeholder dialogues' gives detailed insights in the theories that inspired and formed the Wicked Problems Plaza. It will give insights into what wicked problems actually are. How we could address best them, and how the Wicked Problems Plaza attempts to do so. The publication is nicely illustrated with our recent experiences with the methodology.
In the video prof dr Rob van Tulder explains how we can analyse the wickedness of problems, by introducing two assessment tools. It will further clarify why some problems are wicked and what we can do in order to adress them in an effective way.
