By Robert Fabricant | 2:00 PM July 16, 2013 UX, as user experience is known, is the new black in business culture.

The Rise of UX Leadership - Robert Fabricant

Most of the executives I meet with, regardless of their industry, now promote UX as key to their product strategy. That’s a big change from only five years ago, when UX wasn’t on anyone’s radar outside the tech world. For a designer like myself, it’s easy to recognize which executives know their products intimately, and which manage from a spreadsheet.

The CEO as Lead Product Designer Steve Jobs famously ushered in an era of the CEO as “Lead Product Designer,” as described by one of his close collaborators, Glenn Reid, who worked with Jobs at NeXT and Apple: “(Steve) told me once that part of the reason he wanted to be CEO was so that nobody could tell him that he wasn’t allowed to participate in the nitty-gritty of product design.

This is partly a natural evolution, partly provoked by the media, and partly driven by the government's open public services agenda: increase choice for citizens, release data, diversify the range of providers. Clearly, when it comes to developing new services, digitising existing ones, and understanding users, there is a role for design. Similarly, design can help in policy development at the highest level, with its ability to anticipate future scenarios and plan for them. Let's Design Services!

Snook: Cause & Effect - Problem Drinking - Snook: We are the how

Changes in any individuals life can lead them to altering habits and behaviours, for the purpose of this project we have described the ‘Causes’ as social triggers – divorce, bereavement, redundancy. The effect? Harmful (or problem) drinking. The challenge that the Unlimited Potential team and I are trying to address through the Our Place First project in Eccles is: how can we support people who are problem drinking to consider and alter their alcohol consumption? The second phase of the Our Place First project introduced the Unlimited Potential team to the define and develop stages of the project. The Define Phase: This phase started off by the team building on the research conducted during the first few weeks.

Design-Led Innovation in Government

What does it feel like to start a new business and encounter government red tape and bureaucracy? What will it take to design a digital platform to help the unemployed rapidly find a voluntary mentor to coach them in finding a job? How can education reform be made tangible enough to spur real change in schools across an entire nation? And, not least, how do you systematically prototype, test, and scale up public sector policy and service responses to such challenges? These are some of the questions that the Danish government’s innovation unit, MindLab, has taken on during the last decade.

In Denmark, design has already been applied in a wide range of public sector settings, from rethinking waste management in Copenhagen, to reducing tensions between inmates and guards in Danish prisons, to transforming services for mentally disabled adults in the city of Odense. #ServiceDesign News.
