Digital transformation adds new possibilities but also more complexity to people’s everyday life. To address complex problems within the field of Information System Research, it is advisable to include a variety of stakeholders into the research and design process.

In this paper, we propose to use Design Thinking as a course of action for the conduction of particaptory Action Design Research projects.
