Service Design Thinking, Doing & Understanding / Greg Lakloufi / Episode #69

By Service Design Show

Often there is a big gap between what clients want and what they truly need to solve their challenge or achieve their goal. As a service designer you'll need to use all your diplomatic skills to open clients up for a fresh perspective. This is a crucial step if you want to make impact. We know about Service Design Thinking, Service Design Doing and in this episode Greg Lakloufi talks about Service Design Understanding. The rise of toolkits and the availability off the shelf methods makes service design more accessible for newcomers. But this also creates the need for deeper understanding of what service design is. Understanding is the key to using the tools and methods to their full potential. And finally Greg talks about how we can shift out focus from deliverables to outcomes. We are here to drive customer centric change. Our deliverables are just tools that help us get there. So we really need to focus on outcomes rather than deliverables. Did you enjoy this episode?
