Service design training

Service design for digital practitioners

Service design is the practice of creating user experiences that span all customer touchpoints, covering every aspect of your end-to-end service. Every interaction a customer has with your organisation is an opportunity to create a delightful, memorable and meaningful experience.

Consumers live in an inter-connected omnichannel world. They encounter your products and services on different devices and across multiple channels from the web, mobile, social, on calls, in physical locations etc. This requires the modern digital designer to be equipped to create joined-up engaging customer experiences.

This course will give you the skills to move away from merely designing for the screen and into creating multichannel customer-centred experiences.

During the course you'll learn to:

  • Research customers and their needs
    Build your toolkit of practical research methods, both qualitative and quantitative, and know when and why to use each one
  • Evaluate the customer journey
    Analyse the customer journey to identify pain points and opportunities to optimise and enhance your service
  • Design a service that covers a range of touchpoints
    Create a blueprint that gathers insight from across your team to map out the people, touchpoints and processes that deliver your service
  • Prototype interactions across a range of channels
    Develop your prototyping skills to cover digital and non-digital interactions. You'll try numerous tools and approaches to explore, iterate and demonstrate your ideas
  • Develop a roadmap for omnichannel innovation
    Get tactics to take design thinking to all corners of your business and align your organisation around a customer-centric approach
