Let's talk about Strategic Design in Organisations!

Today, more than ever, the role of design is to shape human needs as we deliver new service models to improve human lives. As design professionals, we continue to experiment with new ways to provide solutions for complex problems.

During the two-part course "Strategic Design in Organisations" with SDN Acc. Master Carol Massá you will learn about the role of service design in organisations today, identify design challenges from an inside and outside-in perspective, and ultimately start to take actions to close gaps between people, processes, policies, and platforms in your organisation.
