This is Service Design Doing: Essentials is a comprehensive 3-day course on service design process, methods, and facilitation.

We live in a service-based economy. 1.7 billion people work in service platforms. The course is designed for executives striving to create or improve customer experiences and integrate service design in their organisation. This course is led by Marc Stickdorn, co-author of the book This is Service Design Thinking, and by Adam Lawrence, co-initiator of the Global Service Jam. The course has been presented in Amsterdam, Atlanta, Barcelona, Berlin and Shanghai, and it is now, for the first time, offered in Chile as a three day “Essentials” version, brought to Santiago

The program will be held by Las Majadas de Pirque, epi (center) of talks for Chile and Latin America. Las Majadas is located in the rural district of Pirque, in the southeast area of the Metropolitan Region of Santiago de Chile. In this land of vineyards and rivers at the foot of the Andes Mountains is a unique place of 8 acres of hundred-year-old trees, fresh water springs and a palace designed by the architect Alberto Cruz in 1905.

We kindly ask you to consider Las Majadas for your stay in Chile and avoid the 1 hour trip from Santiago. For more information, please contact, and visit : / Tripadvisor

Highly practical Workshop

Why should I apply?

Nowadays, customers are more knowledgeable than ever before, and they are talking to each other, which makes customer satisfaction more important than it has ever been. Only an in-depth and holistic understanding of customers and their environment can create offerings that provide meaningful value and make a real difference on the bottom line. Service Design Thinking can provide this understanding. Learn how to apply Service Design Thinking to the rapid innovation of customer experiences in multi-channel product-service ecosystems.

What is the take-away of my daily work?

The main take-away of the workshop will be the ability to apply several tools to your own business problems in order to innovate towards new value propositions. You will be able to instigate real service-innovation projects in your organisation, leading small project teams focused on individual service elements, or developing new value for your entire service offering.

Curriculum and course content

The workshop is limited to 30 participants, and will be highly practical. You will learn about the service design process, methods, and tools by working on a project in a small team, with short periods of reflection on the theory behind contemporary service innovation methods. Confidential feedback sessions are offered around the workshop, giving participants the opportunity to receive input from the mentors on individual challenges from their work and project experience.

Methods and tools include:

Ethnography, Personas, Stakeholder Mapping, Value Network Mapping, Customer Journey Mapping, Service Blueprinting, Business Model Canvas, Service Prototyping, Investigative Rehearsal

General info

This is Service Design Doing moves service design thinking from theory to practice, connecting customer experience to business success. The School facilitators Adam, Marc, and Markus, together with Jakob, also published the book with the same name. With cases and tips from 300 contributors, the authors outline tools and methods, discuss running workshops, sprints and projects, and explore embedding service design.

The co-created script of past editions of the schools laid one of the foundations for the book’s content.
