The 5 best practices to get more value out of your service prototypes / Circle #10 Service Design Show

    • Zaken en persoonlijke financiën

How do you get the most value out of your service prototypes? That was the key question we explored in our recent Circle community session.

As it quickly turned out, there's an entire field with its own set of tools and frameworks that focus on prototyping. During the session, the participants shared their success stories and common roadblocks that prevented them from doing the right experiments.

What emerged were five best practices for doing better, more effective service prototypes that everyone in the session could agree on. In this episode, you'll discover what these best practices are and how you can use them in your day-to-day work.

What I found interesting is that many participants didn't only use prototyping as a way to reduce the risk of expensive failures. They also used it as a very effective strategy to generate buy-in for the eventual solution.

Enjoy the conversation!
