Designing  service
One of the misunderstandings of these days is that a designer has an artist or artisan background. In that approach designers are idea generators, visualizers and prototypers.   That is not our point of view. Our adagium comes from the management writer Herbert Simon, who stated that "Everyone designs who devises courses of action  aimed at changing existing into preferred ones".  As stated by others, this version of design tends to abstraction and general expertise.   The focus of this blog is service and services. In our world  service is exchanged for service. All firms are service firms; all markets are centered on the exchange of service, and all economies and societies are service based. And just even government and other institutions are always exchanging services for services. But be sure, in this era of change there is a heavy focus also on concept generation, visualization and digital concept and prototypes.   Interested in designing services?

Very good advice which starts with "Serve your audience, not your customer". Sounds logical but do companies always do this on social media? . . .

Creating content-sharing relationships with these groups of like-minded folks could be as simple as asking.

Luke Hancock - H&H Social Design's curator insight, August 9, 2013 5:28 PM

While I believe the publication process of content has to be expedited, I think #2 has to come with a caveat of assure you're producing quality content.

 

I disapprove of barriers (internal & external) and bureaucracy preventing you from consistently producing content, I still think there needs to be measures that assures your content will resonate with your audience. 

 

Certainly, brands/companies don't realize all the content they're producing or content opportunities that are under their news.

 

Great read.
