Designing  services
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 what industries does technology enable employees to work better with customers?

In what industries does technology enable employees to work better with customers? | Designing  services | Scoop.it

MIT Sloan Management Review and Deloitte’s 2015 global study of digital business found that maturing digital businesses are focused on integrating digital technologies, such as social, mobile, analytics and cloud, in the service of transforming how their businesses work. Less-mature digital businesses are focused on solving discrete business problems with individual digital technologies.


The ability to digitally reimagine the business is determined in large part by a clear digital strategy supported by leaders who foster a culture able to change and invent the new. While these insights are consistent with prior technology evolutions, what is unique to digital transformation is that risk taking is becoming a cultural norm as more digitally advanced companies seek new levels of competitive advantage. Equally important, employees across all age groups want to work for businesses that are deeply committed to digital progress. Company leaders need to bear this in mind in order to attract and retain the best talent.

Farid Mheir's curator insight, July 24, 1:45 PM

A survey by MIT and Deloitte on the maturity of organization regarding digital yields useful insights on the state of digital in corporations in 2015.


WHY THIS IS IMPORTANT?

Over 75%of corporations are digitally immature so there is room to improve in the future. Also, I expect that as individuals (especially older generations that are still in leadership positions) mature in their digital understanding and their own digital maturity, this will help organizations grow as well.
