Towards a Service Design Toolbox
Service Design an emerging multi-disciplinary practice, which seeks to improve existing or create new services to make them more useful and use-able for customers and more efficient/effective for organisations to deliver.
As a discipline, Service Design is the application of established design processes, skills and tools applied to the the development of services. Service Design is a holistic discipline which tries to see services through the eyes of customers; involves a range of stakeholders in the service design process; and utilises a methodological process to deliver tangible outcomes.
In this section of our website, you'll find a range of tools we use to help manage the Service Design process. They are organised around the 5 stage model of the Service Design process, as set out in the diagram below.
They are by no means all of the tools that are available to help a service designer deliver competitive advantage through service differentiation.
In addition, because Service Design is a creative, facilitated co-creation process, many of these tools only come alive in the hands of an experienced facilitator. However, they are included here to explain a little more about the process and how these tools can add value to your business.
