    Guest speaker: Lou Downe, Scaling good services through service literacy

    The Institute for Citizen-Centred Service (ICCS) in partnership with the Municipal Service Delivery Officials (MSDO) invite you to a complimentary session with guest speaker, Lou Downe, author of "Good Services: How to design services that work". Among her many accomplishments, Lou was voted one of the UK’s top 50 creative leaders by Creative Review and one of world's 100 most influential people in digital government by Apolitical. Most of the services we use every day aren’t designed to meet our needs In fact, most of the services we use every day weren’t designed at all. Design is an increasingly mainstream activity within organisations, yet the services we use today are still more likely to be the product of technological constraints, political whim or personal taste than they are the conscious decisions of an individual or organisation. Lou will talk about the experience of building the UK’s largest in house design teams in the UK government, and what it takes to build a truly user-centred organisation at scale.
