Content Design and Service Design are intrinsically connected. Without content, there is no service.
In this course you will learn the essentials of Service Design, Design Research and Content Design and get to work on a Public Service design challenge remotely with your team. You will also learn and work with raw data-sets, journey maps, personas, system maps and also gain a better understanding of how to work as an effective cohort inside your organisation to deliver more considered services.
This course has been designed to give optimal value to people working in areas of product design, user-interface design and business analyst roles looking to get more hands on experience in conducting research, forming insights to help improve and bringing them into the working environment.
