This episode introduces the idea of "Design Thinking", and begins to lay out how two of the key concepts, Function and Constraints, can be useful to ministers. 

If you're interested in reading more on design thinking, I think Tim Brown's Change by Design is a great starting point, though The Design of Business by Roger Martin or Tom's Kelly's work might work well for you, too.

This launch episode for the Craft of Ministry podcast begins by talking about how important it is to deeply understand the core of your work. 

  • Why our understanding of our work gets distorted
  • Strategies for recovering a grasp of our work
  • The importance of understanding the nature of your work on different levels. 

Hosted by Steven Hovater
