The rapidly changing landscape of people's behavior, expectations and new technologies demands that we design services in a new context.
Gaining competitive advantage from service design
The rapidly-changing landscape of people’s behavior, expectations, and new technologies demands that we design services in a new context.
As a result, service design has taken significant strides forward in the past few years. Yet, the value of service design is still not fully acknowledged, which can provide a significant competitive advantage when implemented properly.
Some markets are more advanced in understanding the importance of service design than others. When creating outstanding services, the first obstacle to overcome is the lack of knowledge and awareness of what service design involves.
The complexity and importance of service design
Often, businesses believe service design is something for which there is no need for experts and that someone who has quickly read a book about it can easily implement it.
However, service design is much more complex and intricate than that. Service design is about understanding and engaging with customers by creating services that bring enjoyable experiences that stand out from the masses.
Not fully understanding the complexity and importance of service design will lead to poorly executed research or one-dimensional customer journeys. This happens by focusing only on delivering service design instead of fully understanding it. Service design requires a deep understanding to ensure it is valuable.
Pretty presentation comes after – Prototyping is the priority
Service design is often mistakenly believed to only deliver pretty presentations on insights and understanding of the markets and customers. But that is not all it is. Good service design needs to be put into action and measured.
The second phase, the phase where the hard work truly starts, is what matters the most. Customer insights are good, but the second phase and prototyping are where you learn so much more.
