SERVICE DESIGN FOR IMPACT 1
Exploring the Gap and the Opportunity
Do you have a potentially great idea for a product or service, but don’t know where to start?

In Service Design for Impact 1, you will explore your idea and learn a human-centered framework. You will get an in-depth understanding of your target audience and their needs related to your idea.
This course is delivered online through recorded video sessions as well as live group sessions. It utilizes simple methods and tools for you to explore your idea from the users' perspective. The program is 20% theory and 80% practice and includes user interviews. You will be able to share your work with other participants and get valuable feedback.

You’ll need to have access to a good internet connection, and a quiet space for the weekly sessions.

Are the group sessions recorded, in case I cannot join?

Can I attend the Booster Program even if I can’t make it to the weekly sessions?
We don't recommend participating in the Booster Program if you can't make it to the sessions. Making time and space for your idea during these weeks will help you to get the most out of the program.
Can I participate even though I just have a vague idea?
Of course! We have participants in all stages of their business journeys.
Do I get a certificate upon completion?
Yes, if you complete all parts of the Booster Program you will receive a certificate.

I just want to ask my questions to a real person..
I got to a point in my career where it was time for me to do something for myself and I knew in what direction I wanted to go but I did not know where to start. I was not sure if the idea made sense, if it would be useful, or if people would like it. I was swamped in uncertainty and low confidence.
By joining the Innovation Booster Program I gained the confidence and the motivation I was lacking to have a fresh and concrete start into my own line of services. With the close coaching of Susanna on a weekly basis supported by new tools and customized to my needs, I was building the structure of my product step by step to bring it to reality. I am also extremely happy and lucky to have been part of a professional and like-minded community there.
I encourage every person having the desire to start their own line of business to enroll in the program, I am confident you will be well taken care of and put on the right track.
