Building service design capabilities, in-house, requires companies to develop a human-centric approach to the development of business. It also requires the ability to connect that customer perspective to the internal operations that will design, develop, and deliver the business manifestations of the customer experience. This requires the breaking down of silos and the development of new work practices and innovation approaches, methods, and tools and requires a program to orchestrate this change in a systematic way. This vision for organizational change is difficult to achieve. Brian will share three stories from his experience designing digital products and services that highlight several different approaches to achieving experience and design driven innovation and share lessons learned from each. The goal is to demonstrate that there are many variations in the approach to achieving long-term change and that design professionals should be encouraged and prepared to adapt their approach to their circumstances.
