About The Event

In many organisations CX and service designers operate as an business influencer rather than a power broker or controller, with little direct say over key touchpoints. With only soft powers of influence to drive change, addressing short-term, bottom-line thinking and decision making can sometimes feel impossible.

Adding to the mix a lack of understanding by the wider business about the value of design, and increasing time and budget constraints, we are often forced to deliver within existing paradigms with very little tangible evidence of what value-add or impact we have had. This chips away at the value that good design can add, undermines our credibility against other parts of the organisation and ultimately makes it harder to advocate for a more customer centred approach next time around. But what if we had a way to quantify in tangible terms what difference design has made to a product, service or initiative?

Join us for this hands-on training seminar with the team at Neurospot to get your hands on tips, tools and case studies to quantify your work and your potential impact in a language that other business stakeholders can understand. Explore the role of measurement and experimentation in the service/ CX design field to up your customer advocacy skills, increase the credibility of your work and start truly influencing your stakeholders with customer needs in mind.

You’ll learn the importance of measurement, how to measure the ‘unmeasurable’ and why experimentation is the tool you’ve been missing. With practical break outs where you can start to apply your learnings, you’ll leave the seminar with new ways to think about the value of your work and influencing decision makers.

You’ll take away:

  • How behaviour change can be measured (hint: you need to know what behaviour you want to change, and why users’ do it in the first place)
  • Why experimentation might be the tool you’re forgetting (and yes, it’s different to ‘test and learn’)
  • A practical guide on how to apply experimentation to a range of experiences
  • Why you shouldn’t always listen to what your customers have to say
  • Where in the design process experimentation can be incorporated to ensure the best shot at making a difference  

Who should attend:

  • Customer Experience practitioners
  • Research and Insights squad members
