Jess’s interest in Service Design
Service design staples like journeys, blueprints, and principles are brilliant for creating a shared vision and a common direction. But you have to face the real world when you finally deliver a new service. What looked great in a blueprint might not work so well when trampled by a toddler who is 8 hours in to a 12 hour travel experience. Too often our tools are linear, only show the typical path, and lose power in the homestretch of implementation. This workshop will provide service recovery and resiliency tools to help you bulletproof services early on, before that screaming toddler arrives.
