User-centred thinking has done the design community proud. However, whilst its laser beam focus on the user is an undoubted strength, it does sometimes mean that the wider user eco-system is not always considered. I'm going to introduce system thinking (also known as service design). System thinking is a way to not only consider the user but the wider system in which a user interacts with a service or product. Think of it as user-centred design 2.0!
This is a presentation that I gave at a SynchHerts meetup (http://www.meetup.com/SyncHerts/) on 7th Aug 2014.
