What is Service Design Thinking?

Service Design Thinking is a human-centered approach that is based on an understanding of the end user’s needs and environment, and on designing services and processes that are relevant from a human point of view.

The Process can be applied anywhere to produce truly creative and human centered results. Service Design Thinking replaces reliance on inborn creativity with trust in a structured and tested process.
