Social Design Strategy Great products and services depend on their users having great experiences. But it’s not about what users do or how they do it, but rather why. Why they do what they do, why they keep coming back, and why they tell their friends. And social design aims to explain the why behind great experiences. BIS Publishers This is Service Design Thinking introduces an inter-disciplinary approach to designing services. Service design is a bit of a buzzword these days and has gained a lot of interest from various fields. This book, assembled to describe and illustrate the emerging field of service design, was brought together using exactly the same co-creative and user-centred approaches you can read and learn about inside. The boundaries between products and services are blurring and it is time for a different way of thinking: this is service design thinking. A set of 23 international authors and even more online contributors from the global service design community invested their knowledge, experience and passion together to create this book. It introduces service design thinking in manner accessible to beginners and students, it broadens the knowledge and can act as a resource for experienced design professionals.

Improving User Workflows with Single-Page User Interfaces By Joost Willemsen Published: November 20, 2006 “Sometimes, one gets the feeling that Web developers implement richness just for the sake of making a Web site and the company that commissions it look cool.” IXDA Interaction 10 Recap – Mental Models Workshop I chose Indi Young’s Mental Models workshop over others on offer this year at Interactions 10 because for me it fills a gap in research skills – adding a formal methodology for working with contextual interview data to drive generative design. I’d encountered the end deliverable – an affinity diagram by any other name – in Adaptive Path materials and workshops – but had only been using the content mapping portion of the diagram. In contrast to techniques which focus on evaluating current practices or tools and suggesting solutions to problems with them, the intent of this flavor of mental model is to identify problems that require solutions. This of course has use as well in eliminating problems from project discussions that don’t actually require solutions. The IxD10 workshop was a half-day version of a full-day workshop. We completed the session with a small group design exercise where we identified products that answered needs exposed in a mental model diagram that Indi provided.
