This is Service Design Doing: Executive School ONLINE is a comprehensive course on service design process, methods, and facilitation.
Whether you use the term service design, design thinking, human centered design, holistic UX etc; the course is designed for executives and leaders striving to create or improve customer or employee experiences, and pioneer or integrate service design in their team or their organisation.
This course is led by Marc Stickdorn, co-author of the book This is Service Design Thinking, and by Markus Edgar Hormess and Adam Lawrence, co-initiators of the Global Service Jam. All faculty members are authors of the top seller “This is Service design DOING”.
The course has been presented as a five-day physical experience in the Netherlands, Germany, Spain, China, Thailand, and the USA. It is now, for the first time, offered publicly online as an “Executive School Online” version, on 8 half days spread over two weeks.

The longer “Executive School” and the shorter “Essentials” courses both cover the same core tools and processes, equipping you to start your own projects in an organisation. Both are available in online and offline versions.
This Executive School has a deeper emphasis on facilitation skills – including practical experience of facilitating several methods – on project planning, and on the embedding of service design in strategy and everyday business.
The online versions of both courses provide exercises and reflection on practicing service design remotely.

This is Doing
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.
