Service Design Workshop: Mapping the Whole Experience
Half Day Workshop
UX Designers are becoming more involved in service design—the application of design across different channels, like mobile, the web, and expanding to paper forms, call centres, and face-to-face service at counters or in retail. Service design considers the whole experience, from initial needs to final satisfaction. It works to make services easier to use, more enjoyable, effective, and profitable.
In this workshop attendees will learn the core concepts of service design, and then explore three specific tools for understanding and mapping the service experience. We will finish the workshop by discussing how UX designers can adopt service design tools into their current practice today.
Citizen Experience Design
Invited Talk (30min)
The public sector needs better design, from making forms, processes, and official websites easier to use to helping decision-makers understand and collaborate better when creating policy.
Design can help create better experiences for citizens, more effective service delivery for government, and create better outcomes and more efficient use of government resources.
This talk will share the need and opportunity for UX designers to help create better citizen experiences, offer some principles and examples, and invite the audience to discuss how citizen experience fits in the Indian context.
