Group synthesis! We printed out individual data points from many different sources pertaining to Big Data, and then as a group, silently affinitized. Once we clustered our own data points, we came together as a group to find overlaps & discrepancies and further synthesize.

A couple photos from yesterdays Steelcase executive workshop I helped facilitate. Steelcase brought three potential service themes for us to help them develop around their existing product offerings. Prototyping tools included: role playing, desktop walk-throughs, and customer journey mapping.

Combing through an old process map to distinguish where big data solutions may be effective.

Using a process map or a blueprint as a launchpad for analysis is a wonderful way of utilizing the tool. Lindsay and I took a quarter long break between making this process map for the Savannah Food Co-op and now; we have a new perspective on the business process now.

Lesson: service design is about zooming in and zooming out. Zoom in on specific service encounters and out in order to view the system as a whole. Tools can be reused and repurposed!

It doesn’t interest me what you do for a living, I want to know what you ache for. It doesn’t interest me how old you are, I want to know if you are willing to risk looking like a fool for love, for your dreams, for the adventure of being alive. I want to know if you can live with failure, yours and mine. It doesn’t interest me where you live or how rich you are, I want to know if you can get up after a night of grief and despair, weary and bruised to the bone, and be sweet to the ones you love. I want to know if you can be alone with yourself and truly like the company you keep in the empty moments of your life.
