What exactly is service design, why do we need it and why is it particularly important for building a circular economy?
In these day-long workshops, the Great Recovery team will introduce the concept of service design and cover its basic applications and benefits to business for a circular economy, taking participants through a design process with practical exercises.
Using Innovate UK’s funded competitions, such as ‘recovering valuable materials from waste’ / ‘circular economy: business models’ as a reference point, we will explore the practicalities and challenges of designing services and systems that work for a 21st century world.
This will be the second of two day long workshops. We will introduce the service development and delivery phase of the design process. We will discuss some of the tools and their benefits in creating services, before building on the insights from the first workshop in a practical exercise. Service solutions will be developed and we will think through how these might be delivered.
