Learning by doing Service Design

A one day course with Daresay

Courses Design Prototyping

By Daresay Team - January 31, 2019

Can you improve the customer experience in just one day? The Daresay course: Learning by doing Service Design will provide a hands-on introduction to service design. During the day you will get to test out design methodologies with a diverse group of people, as you move from interviewing customers, to ideation, to prototyping. Next opportunity to join is January 29th.

We firmly believe that working from a user-centred perspective increases the probability for successful and cost-efficient projects. According to McKinsey, companies that take a good design approach to business outperform the relative industry-benchmark growth by as much as two to one. Despite this, 40% of companies still do not include the end user in development projects – in other words they neglect the service design phase of development. In our service design course, we introduce you to the basics of service design, and help you get an understanding of why talking to customers and challenging your assumptions about them is critical for delivering an amazing customer experience. But we won’t be lecturing about this, you’ll be learning by doing.

Course Content

The one-day course revolves around solving a challenge for a well-known service provider. As a service designer for a day, you will interview customers, map the customer journey, and identify new opportunities for improving the customer experience. No matter what business you’re in, you can always benefit from service design. To aid you in this process we will walk through the foundation of customer-centred development, discuss interview techniques and fast data analysis, as well as doing fun idea generation exercises. By the end of the day, you will have designed and created a valid prototype for the challenge. Our course is great for new inspiration and networking!
