title SOCIAL CHANGE: EXPLORING DESIGN INFLUENCE

summary This paper explores some aspects of group divergence based on principles of design disciplines and social dissemination. Extensions to an elementary model are used to explore the fundamental relation between divergence and social influence mechanisms previously employed to explain group convergence. The possible role of a change agent is investigated supporting the notion that there is no need to invoke any extraordinary mechanism other than convergence to trigger social change.
