A Global Service Design Community of Practice
One of our missions at Practical Service Design is to build community. Global community. As part of that, we launched the Practical Service Design virtual community of practice in November of 2015 to create a safe, low-barrier-to-entry space for people to talk about all sorts of things service design and help each other grow as service designers.
Since then, over 1800 people from all over the world have joined up and are having daily discussions; from square-one beginner topics to things you'd normally only hear in graduate schools!
Although it's completely fine to sit on the sidelines, we encourage you to jump in and engage with the community. Ask questions, share your practice, and join the discussion in Slack.
In the community, you can: discuss service design methods and mindset, ask and answer questions with your peers, attend virtual community events, find other SXD-interested people in your geographic area, and learn about upcoming service design events, job opportunities, and publications.
BECOME A COMMUNITY LEADER
An integral part of the success of our community is people like you who volunteer as Community Leaders. We have many roles and many ways you can step up and contribute to moving our community forward. Join the #community-planning channel if you're interested.
As always, if you have any questions or ideas, don't hesitate to reach out.
Sign up with your email so we can invite you to the Slack community! Please include a LinkedIn or Twitter (or something) so we know you're a real person and have a real interest in service design.
