Kirsten is interested in people's daily work activities: she looks into the strategy people choose to achieve their goals in their work, and she advices on the best design possible.
People are her focus; they make things work as vital part from technical systems.
Kirsten makes functional designs that are accepted by all users involved, contributing to both well-being and performance.
Any issue is analysed both in a systematic and pragmatic way, which can lead to interesting insights along the way. The human factor is the common theme in a project from start to implementation. In her systems approach human, technique and organisation are inseperable.
