RESEARCH + OUTREACH You can never assume that you know everything about your customer. Research is an essential step to gain insight into your customer and how they will interact with your service or product. We established personas by researching representatives from each level of stakeholders involved with the conference. In doing so we contacted and spoke with possible attendees to gauge their interaction with the conference. Then we researched the speakers and videos/articles of the previous SDT conference in Europe. This gave us a deeper understanding of the planning and execution involved with this event. We also met with one of the events organizers to better understand their goals and what they wanted to accomplish. Additionally potential student volunteers were interviewed to see what the perception and intentions were at the student level. Last but, not least we looked at the sponsors of the event since they are an extremely important contributor to making this all possible.

CREDITS + CLOSING Through the exploration of a service design toolkit and SDT 2013,

motivational matrix taught us about how relationships between explored a service or product through the customer’s experience with it, while the storyboards visually represented the itinerary. This toolkit assisted in our educated insights into the Service Design Conference. Through observation and actual interaction, we feel that the improvements that could be made for future conferences lie in none other than the design of the conference itself. Our main suggestions would be to advertise more about the conference and then choose a larger venue to cater to the growing interest in the study of service design. We believe the conference succeeded on many levels including enlightening the participants about the many different arguments and topics within service design as well as how the strong

Because Service Design is multi-disciplinary, it is not about a singular skill set. To design successful service experiences takes a combination of business, research, strategy, design, etc. As Charles Darwin once said, “It is not the strongest of the species that survives, nor the most intelligent, but the one most responsive to change.”
