Transcript

  • 1. Student Service Journey (Touchpoint) Mapping This tutorial takes one facet of Service Design, Service Journey/Touchpoint Mapping, • simplifies it, and • applies it to student services. || Detailed information is provided as slide notes. || Student Service Journey (Touchpoint) MappingThink of a Student Service Journey as the path students will follow as theymove from awareness of your service, to the service exchange, and follow-up support services.Touchpoints are the points along the journey where students interact withyour service through some form a media, a representative, or you.As you work your way through this tutorial, focus on one service youprovide, as and use it as your service design prototype.By the end of this tutorial, and with the use of additional Session 4resources, you should be able to build your Student Service Journey map.

  • 2. Student Service Journey (Touchpoint) Mapping Think of a service journey as having three stages. Building a Student Service Journey Map | Dr. Mark L Joyce | April 2012 2
  • 3. Student Service Journey (Touchpoint) Mapping Stage 2: During Service Exchange (face-to-face)Stage 2 – What Happens During the Service ExchangeStage 2 is the actual service exchange. This is where you meet directly with students and provide your service.Service exchanges can also be done virtually but focus on a face-to-face service exchange, for now.Big Stage 2 Service Design Idea: Service Exchanges Are Jointly Created In The Moment!It’s important to remember that both you and your students contribute to and make this serviceexchange happen.  You both bring prior experiences to the exchange. These prior experiences shape your expectations.  You both contribute to the service exchange, thereby creating a current service exchange experience in the moment.Spontaneous Service Assessment & EvaluationYou will both spontaneously assess & evaluate your satisfaction with the service exchange by comparing theexperience with your expectations.The service exchange experience will exceed your expectations, meet your expectations or fail to meet yourexpectations.More Intentional Service Assessment & EvaluationService assessment & evaluation for sustaining, replicating or improving service delivery success will require moreformal intent and procedures, including, but not limited to, assessment & evaluation of each Student ServiceJourney touchpoint through observations & student surveys/interviews.

  • 4. Student Service Journey (Touchpoint) Mapping Stage 1: Before Stage 2: During Service Interactions Service Exchange involving (face-to-face) • your service media • your representative(s) • you • peer word-of-mouthStage 1: What Happens Before the Stage 2 Service ExchangeEverything that happens in Stage 1 has the goal of getting the students to engage with you in your Stage2 Service Exchange.The number of Stage 1 touchpoints will vary, but each one must move students one step close to theStage 2 Service Exchange.Your Calls to ActionQ: What is the action you will call students to take?A: Engaging with you in the Stage 2 Service Exchange is the action that you want students to take.Service Interactions: Touchpoint stepping stones to your Stage 2 Service ExchangeStudents interact with facets of your service through service interaction touchpoints in Stage 1.Stage 1 Service Interaction touchpoints can be informational and motivational, but must always endwith an imperative call to action.The call to action could be to learn more through the next touchpoint/series of touchpoints or it couldbe a call to schedule an appointment or sign up.

  • 5. Stage 1, continued Student Service Journey (Touchpoint) Mapping Stage 1: Before Stage 2: During Service Interactions Service Exchange involving (face-to-face) • your service media • your representative(s) • you • peer word-of-mouthStudents planning their course of study would benefit from the former. Those with registrationexperience will appreciate a direct path to the latter.Eventually you will need to decide how you will differentiate your • content for“first-timers”/novices vs. those with some experience/expertise. • print/digital content for those students who are new vs. returning users of your service.Forms of Service InteractionsStudents my become aware of your service and learn more about it through • your print and/or digital service media • your representative(s) including, but not limited to front desk personnel, tutors, and others representing you and your service • you, especially if you wear all the hats • peer word of mouth – others who have used your service. This is the service interaction over which you have the least control. The control you do have is in the form of your name, niche, meme and theme. You do want to control those messages!

  • 6. Stage 1, continued Student Service Journey (Touchpoint) Mapping Stage 1: Before Stage 2: During Service Interactions Service Exchange involving (face-to-face) • your service media • your representative(s) • you • peer word-of-mouthThe Big Stage 1 Service Design Idea: Build with a Bias Toward ActionThe planning, delivery, assessment and evaluation of your student service does not begin andend with your Stage 2 Service Exchange!Much of what contributes to your success lies in well-differentiated Stage 1 Service Interactions.

  • 7. Student Service Journey (Touchpoint) Mapping Stage 1: Before Stage 2: During Stage 3: After Service Interactions Service Exchange Service Follow-Up involving (face-to-face) • follow through • your service media • transfer/application • your representative(s) • you • peer word-of-mouthStage 3: What Happens After the Stage 2 Service ExchangeStage 3 Service Follow-Up is the most neglected component of service delivery.Once your Stage 2 Service Exchange has been completed, how do you follow-up on what has beinstructed or agreed upon? • Did the student follow through and do what was agreed upon? Does it matter? To whom? • Did the student transfer and apply what was instructed to the contexts targeted by the instruction? • Is following transferring and applying skills developed (as opposed to covered?) in tutoring optional? • Is transfer and application of skills instructed or covered in a voluntary workshop optional?

  • 8. Stage 3, continued Student Service Journey (Touchpoint) Mapping Stage 1: Before Stage 2: During Stage 3: After Service Interactions Service Exchange Service Follow-Up involving (face-to-face) • follow through • your service media • transfer/application • your representative(s) • you • peer word-of-mouthHow Do You Define Success?Success has to be defined, designed, assessed and evaluated holistically in terms of • Stage 1 – successfully getting people to sign up (and prepare for?) your Stage 2 Service Exchange • Stage 2 – providing instruction, advising, counseling, etc. that exceeds expectations. What would make it remarkable? • Stage 3 – providing follow-up support through personal contact or in the form of content websites/portals and/or job aids. • What personal support are you providing through periodic personal contact? • What performance support are you providing to support the development of intrinsic motivation and self-directed competence? • What are you doing to make the information provided and content instructed available 24/7 for review by students with whom you’ve had Stage 2 Service Exchanges? What’s available for novices? For those with some experience or expertise? • What preparatory support are you providing in Stage 1 to optimize the time spent together in your Stage 2 Service Exchange?

  • 10. Student Service Journey (Touchpoint) Mapping Stage 1: Before … Stage 2: During … Stage 3: AfterService Interactions Service Exchange Service Follow-Up involving (face-to-face) • follow through • your service media • transfer/application • your representative(s) • you • peer word-of-mouth The number of touchpoints before & after the Stage 2 Service Exchange will vary. You should have at least six touchpoints, touchpoints that address the Six Service Journey Map Questions You Must Address. Building a Student Service Journey Map | Dr. Mark L Joyce | April 2012 10

Map buildin: Stage 1, continued Building a Student Service Journey/Touchpoint Map Stage 1: Before Stage 2: During Stage 3: After Service Interactions … Service Exchange … Service Follow-Up Stage 1: Stage 2: Stage 1: Accept Call Service Awareness to Action ExchangeThree Touchpoints Anchor the MapYou’re going to Label and position three sticky note touchpoints. After them, the rest of the touchpointjourney is fill-in the blanks! Stage 1 • Touchpoint: Awareness This is your far left Stage 1 touchpoint. Details: • What way or ways to you use to help students become aware of your service? • What’s working? What’s not? How do you know? • Is that your point opinion or the opinion of the students being served? (Remember the 80:8 research!) Building a Student Service Journey Map | Dr. Mark L Joyce | April 2012 12

Map building: Stage 1 continued Building a Student Service Journey/Touchpoint Map Stage 1: Before Stage 2: During Stage 3: After Service Interactions … Service Exchange … Service Follow-Up Stage 1: Stage 2: Stage 1: Accept Call Service Awareness to Action Exchange • Touchpoint: Complete the Call to Action This will always be the last Stage 1 touchpoint. Most of your Student Services require that a student • sign-up or register for a workshop or event, or • schedule an appointment to meet with you. Details: • Once a decision has been made to accept your call to action (committing to engaging in your Stage 2 Service Exchange) how are you making it easy for a student to quickly and simply do whatever you require to sign-up, register, or schedule? • How are you using digital technologies to simplify this procedure? Your running record? • What’s working? What’s not? How do you know? • Is that your point opinion or the opinion of the students being served? (Remember the 80:8 research!)

Building a Student Service Journey/Touchpoint Map Stage 1: Before Stage 2: During Stage 3: AfterService Interactions … Service Exchange … Service Follow-Up Stage 1: Stage 2: Stage 1: Accept Call Service Awareness to Action Exchange Stage 2 • Touchpoint: Service Exchange For Student Services purposes, there will usually only be one Stage 2 touchpoint Details: Details will vary with the service being provided. They might include such things as outlines of • an event • a workshop • an advising session • a career counseling session In each case, how has what to expect/not to expect, from the Service Exchange, been made clear to the student? Was this done prior to the Service Exchange (Stage 1 information) or at the beginning of the Service Exchange (too late?)? Remember the relationship between expectations and satisfaction!

  • 15. Building a Student Service Journey/Touchpoint Map Stage 1: Before Stage 2: During Stage 3: After Service Interactions … Service Exchange … Service Follow-Up Stage 1: Stage 2: Stage 1: Accept Call Service Awareness to Action ExchangeThe Rest of the Journey • Fill in the touchpoints between Stage 1: Awareness and Stage 1: Accept Call to Action For your service design prototype, focus on a single type of student, such as a first- timer or novice to your service. Later you can create parallel (possibly intersecting) journeys for more experienced (repeat) students, as appropriate. • Fill in the Stage 3 Follow-Up touchpoints appropriate to your prototype serviceThe 80:8 Research80% of service providers felt they were doing a fine job of providing their services. Only 8% oftheir service recipients agreed. • Think about that for a moment in terms of the expectation > satisfaction relationship • Think about that for a moment in terms of the importance of getting feedback for improvement (not just satisfaction) from your students. • Once you’ve sticky sketched your Student Service Touchpoint Journey, get some feedback from students and modify your map, as needed.

  • 16. The Action Method Revisited Do you remember the three primary components of the Action Method? • Action Steps (and the bias toward action focus of the next action) • References – those resources you will use to support completion of your project, in this case identification and detailing of your touchpoints as part of a Student Service Journey Touchpoint Map • Backburner Items – ideas that are not immediately actionable but you want to capture for another time or project As you build your Student Service Journey Touchpoint Map, practice recognizing and capturing the many backburner items that will occur to you as you work on different parts of your map. Be prepared to quickly write them down or sketch them out for use in the perhaps not too distant future!Your Student Service Journey Touchpoint map is an excellent project with which to explore useof the Action Method components!Links with more details for review of the Action Method Breaking Actions into Primary Elements See document(s): Action-Method-I-Breaking-Projects-into-Primary-Elements Building a Student Service Journey Map | Dr. Mark L Joyce | April 2012 16
  • 17. Application of your ServiceMarketing Analyses & PlanningFor Session 3: Marketing Matters, you developed • a simple marketing plan for your service prototype • a marketing calendar for your service prototype • a name, niche, meme & theme for your prototype service • a benefits list for your service prototypeThink of all the information contained within these four documents asresources you can use to inform the flow of your touchpoints and thecontent within each touchpoint in Session 4.
