Within the Australian business context the Aboriginal entrepreneur’s financier is inevitably non-Indigenous, their suppliers are predominantly non-Indigenous; their sales are normally to the non-Indigenous and their business model almost always conservatively is non-Indigenous. Yet in other countries such as Aotearoa and Canada due to larger concentrations of Indigenous people these facets of business can be different and the business model as in the Aotearoa example already mentioned (Foley 2008, 2008b) can in fact follow tikanga values with a third and fourth bottom line.

The quality of dementia care has become an important policy issue. This paper examines the role that regulation plays in protection and innovation in care settings. Regulation sits at the crossroads of the State’s duty to protect its most vulnerable citizens, provider attempts to fulfil market expectations and consumers concern for their rights and protection. Here we examine the way that regulation is not a uniform event, but forms clusters that allow more effective policy development and resourcing.

Deloitte shares with us some of the lessons learnt in the recent redesign of Child Youth and Family. It took a “human-centred design” approach, combined with other disciplines. This involved customer insight, collaboration and designing a new model.

A design approach benefits social innovation and has been used by community economic development providers, start up social enterprises, central and local government. However incorporating it into large organisations or complex systems is more complicated.
