At the beginning of the paper students will identify a seemingly intransigent or 'wicked' problem relating to Māori or other Indigenous peoples. They will form groups according to specialist interest and expertise. Each group will be supported through briefings, tutorials and coaching to self-manage through a flexible problem solving process. This is an advanced course, and students will be expected to demonstrate a high level of independence in managing their work and proactively seeking support. The paper will culminate in the delivery of independent reports and presentations to an academic, business and lay audience.
