UX Crunch at Home: Service Design

Online event

Much like UX designers, service designers look into the user's experience of a websites touch-points. But they also shape how those touch-points are connected, how people move around the service and what the experience of that journey may look like for both users and employees of that service. They're more likely to be consulted with larger scale problems or if the solution to the problems require changes spanning over multiple parts of the service. They must remain consistent in their approach to design whilst also maintaining a personable service that not only meets the business intents and the users' needs- but excels their expectations. Join our speakers as they share insights from their experiences in service design and look at how to approach some of the issues that service designers may be tasked with.

Tickets are FREE - Register here: https://www.techcircus.io/servicedesign

Featuring:

Nancy Nazarian - Creative Director of UX, Elephant
People, Props & Process: How Service Design is the Secret Sauce for Customer Impact

Businesses, brands and orgs are on an eternal hunt for innovative ways to improve their customer experience so they can reap the financial benefits of said positive experience. All too often, incredible ideas and beautiful design solutions fail to take off or quickly lose traction after launch. Why is this? In order for these ideas to take hold, they need to be buttressed by the people, props and process defined in Service Design.
Service Design is the secret sauce that businesses roll out to map, ideate, and execute experiences that impact customers, improve workflows, and generate business value. Without this scaffolding, many great ideas don’t mature into great experiences.

Anders Hojmose - Head of UX, EF Education First
Design Systems need Service Design

Including: how to get to know your users and the importance of understanding and getting buy-in from stakeholders. We'll explore how you can get your tooling right and look at governance, transparency and the need to evolve. And finally, how you can then tie it all together as a service.

Adam Cochrane, Senior Product Designer, Zalando
Ritual Design

Adam’s introduction of ritual design will help you designer culture and services in the right way. Not only can ritual design shed new light on the do’s and don'ts of how to better work together and it can also help us design better services for others. Adam’s storytelling is a source of inspiration for new perspectives and metaphors that we are sure you will find useful regarding your everyday design work.

UX Crunch Panel: Building Diverse Teams and the Impact on Product

When building your team, it's important to understand the influence that each member can bring to the product or service that you're providing, and to keep in mind the ways in which their perspective offers room for substantial growth. As human beings, we're all so complex and have varying needs- so from a UX standpoint, it's vital that all users are also reflected in your company. Having an inclusive team making decisions for your product ensures that it's doing it's job for all members of your target audience; as well as promoting healthy ethics and great awareness both internally and externally. By working with a wide range of people and encouraging diversity, you're creating fantastic opportunities for both personal and product development whilst also minimising the risk of bias and ensuring that everybody is fairly represented.

Join our wonderful panellists as they explore the many benefits of diversifying your team and offer insight into how you can create opportunities for great social change. This is not one to be missed.

UX Crunch at Home - Data & Design

Online event

Data is the backbone of solid UX. Without meticulously going through our research and findings, we'd never fully understand what it is customers are looking for from a product or service and we'd probably make a lot of bad decisions. The entire design process needs to be backed by the data that your researchers have harvested in order to create something that has been carefully crafted for your users with their best interests being kept in mind. It's important to keep data analysis as a consistent moving part of your design process that is constantly evolving as you grow your business. You shouldn't just keep an eye on your own statistics either, tracking competitors and their data not only gives you a better understanding of the market but may offer insight on ways to improve your business.

Qualitative and quantitative data offer different insights to your users experience, so may need to be handled in completely different ways. Join our speakers as they delve into the best analytical approaches of evaluating and re-evaluating your data harvesting techniques- alongside the results that they offer. We'll be diving into what jargon and tools are commonly used by professionals within the industry to see how they can be utilised and how they connect to one another.

Featuring:

Mike Oren - Sr Manager Design, Health Care Services Corporation
Scott Plewes & Roxana M Barbu, Chief Strategy Officer & Senior Cognitive and Behavioural Experience Researcher, Akendi & Macadamian Technologies
Ata Ülgenbay Kayacan, UX Strategist, SHERPA
