Our service design projects are very diverse in nature, industry, and scope. \n\nFrom the very strategic ones to the most tacticals. \n\nFrom those which seek internal innovation to those which seek an impact in the life of the users.\n\n
\n\nWe&#x2019;ll talk about Carrefour Scanlib a supermarket self-scanner service, Virtual mobile on mobile virtualization, and Globalcaja entrepreneurs a financial service for entrepreneurs designed from scratch.\n
But firstly, we&#x2019;d like to share with you three ideas on SD to give you some context on the way we do things\n
For us Service Design is not about just doing pretty things, or disguising our problems with fancy artifacts or speeches...\n\nit&#x2019;s about real life, it&#x2019;s about designing the best experience we can for our users\n
Even the most technological Services are implemented by people in the companies, \n\nOur projects have a strong presence of technology, but the most important factor is always the people in charge of making real things happen\n
Yes, we need a human-centered aproach for SD: we can&#x2019;t design a service which is against the needs, feelings, or motivations of our clients...\n
And we can&#x2019;t design against the needs, feelings, and motivations of our staff. Services are not products, services are something intangible that is co-created by our user and our staff in different moments. If we forget the user or our staff we won&#x2019;t do good design.\n\nAlternate\nWe design for and with staff too, \nwe design for the real people in charge of the moments of truth with their values, needs, motivations and assets.\nServices are created in the very moment of delivery by the client and the staff\nIf we don&#x2019;t take into account our people, we won&#x2019;t do service design.\n
Carrefour asked us to do some research in order to localize the software of its self-scann service\n
So we went to some supermarkets in France and did some etnographic research. User research is so important for Service Design! Observation let us focus on the things that are really happening, on the actions we are trying to facilitate through design...\n
And in this case the Carrefour and Designit team discovered that this project wasn&#x2019;t about just translating the labels of an application\n
it was also about Carrefour&#x2019;s Spanish clients, and staff\n
the elegant integration of existing related services\n
and prepare the supermarket space with clear and easy artifacts to support the service\n
What started as a research-localizing project ended up being a service design project with the aim of ensuring the most convenient experience for the Spanish clients and to do that we had to identify the moments of truth and all the internal activity that supported the success within that moments.\n
Hey we&#x2019;ve got an amazin technology but we need\nMore or less this was the approach when we met our client, a savy wise guy from Telefonica R&D. \nThese are the kind of challenges we love in Designit!\n
And we started with some participatory design: \ngroup, we are very interested in how you live and use your mobile phones nowadays:\n the good, the bad moments, the job moments, the family/friends moments.\n
But we also ask them to imagine the future and how to potentiate the good moments and solve the barriers they encounter nowadays\n
They put a lot of passion, had a lot of fun and came up with lots of ideas.\n
With all the data, the Telefonica tema joined in and worked on generate ideas buiding on users&#x2019; and also to select the ones that could work based on their technology and business feasibility.\n
To finally produce 4 scenarios to create real services.\nThe starting point of the project was technology, but using service design the arrival point was real people&#x2019;s life, designing engaging services that could get the user closer to the future scenarios they imagined.\nAnd yes, we finally designed an app that is going to be launched at the end of this month and hope to work with the Telefonica team to develop more scenarios.\n
As you could see, the very nature of SD projects is that of transformation and to reach that there&#x2019;s a continous movement and design work between concept and execution, strategy and tactic, organization front-stage \n
