The Third in a Trilogy of Service Design Handbooks Published by the International Service Design Institute
(Tampa, Fl., April 2020)—The International Service Design Institute has released The Master, the third in a trilogy of handbooks for service designers. Service Design is a practice for building services, as product design is a practice for building products
“The Master is a collection of models, tools and case studies for service designers to measure the use, quality and performance of services,” accomplished service designer Steven J. Slater said, a co-founder and author of The Master.
Approximately 2 million professionals consider themselves service designers, as do user experience designers and design thinkers. Their numbers are growing with the increasing importance of services in the global nations’ service-driven economies.
The Master is the final book in the reference handbooks that were heavily researched and written based on real-world practice. The handbooks are for service designers to build services in a logical, step-by-step sequence. The topics covered include generating and validating ideas for new services, models and tools for constructing two-dimensional services, and measurements to gauge service impact and performance. Each topic appears in sequence starting with The Apprentice, then The Journeyman, and now The Master.
