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

Highly practical Workshop

What is the difference between TiSDD Executive Course (5 days) and TiSDD "Essentials ONLINE" ?

The 5 day “Executive School” and the shorter “Essentials” courses (in-person and online) both cover the same core tools and processes, equipping you to start your own projects in an organisation. The 5-day course has a deeper emphasis on facilitation skills, and on the embedding of service design in strategy and everyday business.

The 5 half-days “Essentials Online” course provides practical exercises looking at how to practice service design remotely.

Attending all sessions of the TISDD ESSENTIALS ONLINE course is the equivalent of completing the TiSDD ESSENTIALS in-person.

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.
