Cultural implications can be tricky. You need[3] to identify the cultural groups that you are building the outcome[4] for and also consider the other cultural groups that will have an interest in your outcome.

For example building a free speech social network could empower people to speak their minds freely. However this could give people the opportunity[1] to harass other groups.

What is culturally appropriate at one point in time might not be later on.

One way to address[5] this is to consult with other cultures to get their feedback[2] during the research, analysis, design[6] and development stages.

Questions that you should consider are:

  • Is the outcome culturally appropriate?
  • Have I considered all different cultural perspectives?
  • Are all cultures treated fairly?
  • Have I considered Te Tiriti o Waitangi?
