Publay - Introduction Presentation Transcript

  • 1. Open Service Design @ Work Giandomenico Sica g.sica@publay.com http://www.linkedin.com/in/nicosica May 1, 2009 The “one minute” institutional presentation lunedì 4 maggio 2009
  • 2. Introduction quot;Publayquot; is an innovation center in the service field. We are a not for profit institution that works in partnership with public and private companies of the tertiary sector. In particular, we work together with our associate partners to improve the quality of their services. The distinguishing feature of Publay is that we innovate their services by directly involving in the design process their customers and stakeholders. We co-design the service with them, in an open and participatory way.

  • 3. Some preliminary consideration A service is different from a product: 1. It is quot;intangiblequot;. A service can't be experienced - touched, tasted, smelled, heard, etc. - before the purchase. 2. It is quot;inseparablequot;. A service can't be separated from the service provider. The employee who provides the service is part of the same service. 3. It is quot;variablequot;. The quality of the service can vary during the time and in relation to the single provider. 4. It is quot;perishablequot;. A service can't be stored or archived for future use or sales. The service experience is something that is defined in the interaction between provider and user. Adopting a metaphor, we can say that a service is like a movie. It has a plot and screenplay (the service structure), a director (the service manager) and some actors (the employees). In this context, we focus on the service concept and structure.

  • 4. Our “open design” process 1/2 Imagine that you are one of our associate partners and we want to innovate your service, specifically your service concept and structure. In order to achieve this goal we do the following activities: - We prepare a description of the service, together with you. - We prepare a detailed peer review of the service, involving an international and interdisciplinary panel of experts. - We publish the description of the service in our website and we ask the readers to provide us with comments and feedback about it. - We gather all the comments, integrate them in the review and we publish the final document in our website, open for comments. - We prepare a research plan - through which we try to understand and define what kind of information we need to improve the design process - and we publish it in our website, open for comments.

  • 5. Our “open design” process 2/2 - We carry out the research, which consists of identifying, collecting, structuring, and analyzing information that is necessary and useful for improving the quality of the service. - We prepare a periodical report, providing an interpretation and explanation of the results, and an overview on how to improve the service, based on our analysis. - We publish this report in our website, open for comments. - Periodically we revise the service description and the research plan, according to the output of the research analysis. In developing these activities, we possibly work together with your marketing department, in order to involve directly the real service customers and stakeholders in the dialogue and in the service design process.
