The world is speeding up and the stakes are only getting higher. How can service designers more deliberately influence and prepare for challenges and significant shifts in environment, society, technology and politics? By developing a structured way to think about the future, we can find ways to look beyond the noise of the present to work towards preferred outcomes for service providers, users and stakeholders. In this one day workshop we’ll introduce the concept of developing a futures mindset, scanning the fringes for signals of change and applying that insight to make better choices as service designers in the present.
