CIID: Service Design through Experience Prototyping (London)
Service Design through Experience Prototyping
The design and delivery of an excellent service is a uniquely complex task. Services are made up of many touchpoints: printed materials, websites, face-to-face contact, physical objects, and many more. To build a successful service, all touchpoints need to be taken into account.
In this course we aim to provide you with the skills to understand user needs, come up with great service concepts, communicate these ideas well, and create sophisticated experience prototypes to test your concepts. We will work according to a rapid design thinking process that puts the user at the center to create actionable, business-ready experience prototypes.
- Quickly understand a user group through field research
- Rapid analysis and opportunity creation
- Facilitating a collaborative ideation session for actionable concepts
- Creating a service blueprint
- Using rapid experience prototyping to get meaningful user feedback
