Two of our former students, Jan Kristian Strømsnes and Maren Moe Stokke were invited by BEKK Consulting (www.bekk.no), by Christin Staubo in the department of Service Design, to presented SOD at their yearly competence day.

Both of the designers currently work for the technology and healthcare company Dignio (www.dignio.no), and use SOD combined with Service Design in their daily work.

The presentation started with an introduction to the SOD approach followed by a workshop where the consultants got to learn tools such as timeline and ZIP analysis. Further on they got an introduction to the mindset of systems thinking driven from a design perspective and how to apply efficient tools for ideation and mapping. Designers with a background within SOD shared their oppinions and insights of using SOD in client relations. This was provided from designeres in organizations such as Bouvet, Hareide Design, Beyond Risør, Halogen and PhD program at AHO.
