They are experts at cocreation and leading workshops and interviews. Journey Mapping, facilitating workshops, creating service design blue prints and is a story teller. Research skills are a plus. Comfortable with these 5 Principles of Service Design 1. User-Centric The service must always be designed around the users of the service users. Ask customers questions about how they feel, and what they want to achieve when using your product or service to gain insight into how you can improve the existing service (or whether you should introduce new services). 2. Co-Creative All relevant stakeholders, from product design to fulfillment and customer service, should play a role in the service design process. This will help the service designer to find truly relevant solutions that provide a seamless experience for all involved. 3. Sequencing Services should be visualized by sequences, or key moments in a customer's journey. Each key moment can then be broken down further into three distinct steps: pre-service, during service, and post-service. 4. Evidencing One of the more challenging aspects of this step-by-step process is helping team members understand what role they play in the overall experience flow. Service design relies heavily on evidencing, or visual communication, to help each individual team member visualize what stage the customer is in, and how they might best be served in that moment. 5. Holistic Service design thinking is a continual assessment of what's working and what needs to be improved. It considers everything from business models to material components in an effort to create truly delightful experiences for the end user.
