    What is The Service Design Jam?

    A design jam can best be explained when it is compared to a music jam. For music jams people with various skills come together to play music. It is all about playing with each other, creating a unique atmosphere and learning from each other. The goal is not so much to produce a fantastic studio album. As an outcome some music jammers will form a band after the jam, others simply learned new ways of playing music.

     

    A design jam is very similar. Design professionals and people interested in the topic come together to work on a challenge for 48 hours. Even though the jam will be based on a user-centered design approach, there are no set rules on how to solve the challenge. The final outcome can be a scenario for a service concept, a physical prototype for a product, a movie and so on.

  • A Little Story about the jam history ...

    The first Jam was the Global Service Jam in 2011. The Global Service Jam was initiated and coordinated by Markus Hormess (who had the initial idea) and Adam Lawrence of WorkPlayExperience, a German-based service design agency. Markus is German with a background in theoretical physics and process design; Adam is British and has a background in psychology, marketing and theatre. The Sustainability Jam and Gov Jam are sister events of the Service Jam. This November groups in over 90 cities will join the Global Sustainability Jam.
