Round table speaker
Round table session
'Moving mountains: embedding service design in large organisations'
How can large organisations become design-driven and embed in-house service design capabilities? What are the benefits and challenges of internal service design? This interactive session will be led by three members of the Oracle NetSuite Experience Design team.
In this session you will explore cases of starting service design centers in large organisations, including healthcare and education, with some lessons learned the hard way. The team will share how these lessons are being applied to Oracle NetSuite’s strategy to transform the business into a design-driven leader in the Cloud Business Software industry. The presentation will weave in project examples to illustrate progress and engage you in meaningful discussions about organisational culture, bridging silos, evangelising (service) design and getting buy-in from the top.
