Dynamic Hands-on Certification Program Covering the Fundamental Service Design Process, Methods and Mindset for Service Innovation and Organisational Transformation
Service Design Network Bulgaria and Fabrica 360 welcome you to this 4-week accredited course.
Based on design thinking, service design is truly the next big competitive advantage for the business. With user-centred design at its heart, service design is about the design of experiences customers love. In a digital age, it’s hard to imagine designing services without data and technology. But technology itself won’t solve a user’s problem and create a delightful experience.
Learn how to shift away from a technology or marketing focus towards real empathy for your customers.
In this program you will be working on a real business case, building your portfolio as a service designer. Our hands-on formats inspire professionals from different sectors and help them with practical knowledge, tips and methods to design the ultimate customer experience and to transform their organisation for the future. The methodology is set-up in such a way that you’ll be able to implement your learnings directly during your daily work.
Additional benefits: Certificate for Attendance from the Global Service Design Network and a signed copy of the Inside the Designer's Mind booklet
