Making the intangible tangible

Updated: Feb 14

There are many complex systems and processes that go behind a service. How people work together. How technologies inter-link. Where the data comes from and where it surfaces. How things work over time. How all these contributing elements come together is the business of service design.


Making a service visible is key. Long reports, endless pages of text make quick access to the info you need at a certain point in time more than difficult. Maps not only show you what happens but very importantly the context within which it happens.


Mapping can be as simple as post-its on a wall, to a spreadsheet, to a map drawn up in a design programme like Miro or Illustrator. The key is that they are co-created and are a living source of information for a product/service team. Maps help teams to understand how things work, identify when there are pain points or opportunities. They are a communication tool to enable innovation. Co-op Digital have pushed the boundaries of service maps and you can see Katherine Wastell & Louise Nicholas share their wider story here: https://bit.ly/3bC0sP4
