Journey Management for Real Impact: Using Maps for Agile Organizations

Facillitated by Marc Stickdorn and Michael Steingress

Theme: Elevating impact

Nowadays, organizations run dozens, sometimes even hundreds, of agile projects that all impact customer and/or employee experience. Only a few of these projects are innovation or design projects – many of which are changes in SOPs, implementing legal changes (such as GDPR), IT updates, etc. These projects impact CX/EX but are hardly coordinated. Service design is a team sport. To sustainably improve customer experience, all parts of an organization need to be aware of the impact of their projects on customer and employee experience. In this hands-on workshop, you’ll learn to use Journey Maps beyond a mere design or workshop tool: How to use journey maps to build an organization’s information system that actually helps prioritize projects from a CX perspective.
