The aim of this session is to share insights into Sopra Steria’s service design methodology, which has been developed primarily in the government sector but can be applied more widely.
I'll talk through my reasons for moving from government to a supplier and why I think that large companies need service designers and service design methodologies. I'll also show how service design and design thinking can help enable transformation, bringing coherence, agility and improvements to service delivery.
I will explore tools that have been tried and tested at Sopra Steria and from my previous experience in government, supported by case studies.
The session will cover the following topics:
1. The pain and joy of building a team and introducing new ways of working in a large company
2. Small service design interventions in large organisations and massive projects
3. Learning and recommendations
