Action Design is a partnership formed in 1992 by Philip McArthur, Robert Putnam, and Diana McLain Smith.  Its roots are the learning and working relationship that began when we were graduate students at Harvard University during the 1980's.  Action Design offers development programs for client organizations, serves as an umbrella for our consulting practices, and creates a setting for developing ideas, methods, materials, and ourselves.
