Lean Service Design Webinar

Abstract: 80% of Companies believe they deliver a Superior Service, only 8% of their Customers agree

Lean Service Design changes the way you think about business. No longer can companies focus their efforts on process improvements. Companies must engage the customer in use of their product/service rather than analyzing tasks for improvement. We must change our mindset from thinking about design at the end of the supply chain. We must move design and the user themselves to co-create or co-produce the desired experience from the beginning.

When we set out to improve service, the carryover of product thinking that better, faster, cheaper wins is a total misnomer. The focus on our own activity encourages internal thinking and misplaces our priorities. While addressing services from this viewpoint may seem to be productive, it misses the point in design. If we intend to make services profitable, we must accept that customers do not care how we do our work. Customers want us to provide a service to help them achieve a desired outcome. However, have we designed our services to demonstrate that value?
