The Forum is a membership group where members share best practice, explore ‘hot topics’ along the Food and FMCG value streams and participate in optional, accelerated Open Innovation (OI) collaborations. Key to the success of the Forum is the OI Practice Self-Assessment model which allows individuals and companies alike to assess the maturity of their current OI practice. The model also allows respondents to identify which facets of OI practice are most important to their own context and which are most challenging to achieve.

Service Design for Innovation & Start-ups

Tuesday, 17 December 2019

New York, USA

To celebrate the launch of the latest issue of Service Design Network's journal "Touchpoint", the SDN Belgium chapter is teaming up with Board of Innovation to dive further into the issue's topic: "Service Design for Innovation and Start-ups".

https://www.service-design-network.org/touchpoint/vol-11-no1-service-design-for-innovation-and-start-ups

We invited 2 guest speakers:
- Jesse Grimes: Touchpoint's Editor-in-Chief, and an independent Amsterdam-based service designer who works with start-ups and innovation labs
- Mike Pinder: Guest Editor of Touchpoint and Senior Innovation Consultant at Board of Innovation

During the event, they'll both share their perspectives on the challenges and opportunities for Service Design in these unique contexts.

Jesse will approach this topic from two perspectives. He'll begin by presenting the values that service design thinking and techniques can deliver to start-ups and innovators, while also discussing some of the inherent challenges and conflicts. He'll then discuss how service designers can find opportunities working in this space.
https://www.service-design-network.org/community-knowledge/making-the-case-for-service-design-for-start-ups-and-innovation

Mike will share his experiences working with global Fortune 500 project teams and will locate Service Design as a discipline across the corporate innovation landscape. He will present insights into what intrapreneurial innovation funnels are inherently trying to achieve in terms of ‘knowing’ across entire projects whilst critically-presenting the role Service Design can optimally play.
