The Global Service Jam is a non-profit volunteer activity organized by an informal network of service design aficionados, who all share a common passion for growing the field of service design & customer experience.
This year we're hosting the first one in Salt Lake City and we welcome everyone to come be a participant. Seriously everyone. It doesn't matter your discipline - you just need to be interested in services or creativity, and have an open, enquiring mind. You might be a service designer, an academic, a customer, a student, a customer experience person, a UX ninja, a patient, someone in the customer frontline, unemployed, an actor, an artist, a doctor, a grandpa or a kid.
What you will get:
You will learn more about a design-based approach to problems
You will pick up a load of new ideas and work practices.
You will meet a lot of cool people at all levels of experience.
Your work and ideas will be reviewed by your peers, and presented to the world, where they can be seen by potential customers or employers, or people who could make them real.
You will design something that may become a real business.
You might get rich and famous.
You will certainly have a blast
We will have a more specific agenda, including a timeline and list of activities, to come. In the meantime, you can learn more about Global Service Jams from the past on their website or on their Facebook.
