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?

In an increasingly complex world we need to change our education system. Frey suggests the use of micro-credits as a method of credentialising. I agree we need to change but I'm not sure that this approach will just create another layer of bureaucracy. This comment will start the debate:

“Who is going to jump first into granting a degree that doesn’t have the seat time requirement that we do today that employers will see as credible? Where does the credibility come from?” – Bill Gates at the World Economic Forum 2013 in Davos, Switzerland

Interesante propuesta de Thomas Frey para crear unidades de aprendizaje llamadas "microcréditos" autocontenidas, autoevaluadas y con la propuesta de un sistema de reconocimiento granular del aprendizaje
