Workshop ‘Ideation Techniques’ March 29

On 29 March 2016, the Dutch chapter of the Service Design Network, of which STBY is one of the active core members, is organising an evening around Ideation techniques.

As service design enthousiasts we use many tools and techniques to create useful and meaningful services. How do you stretch yourself to think in new ways? Do you have tips and tricks to share? And what can you learn from others? This is what will be discussed in this workout. Maartje van Hardeveld (UX team coordinator at Rabobank, and a very experienced facilitator) will show how she gets the most out of her ideation sessions.

To put this newly gained knowledge into practice we have a very exciting topic to work on. The Service Design Network is bringing the 9th Service Design Global Conference to the Netherlands! As the Dutch chapter of the SDN network we will welcome many international Service Designers to Amsterdam. We’d love to hear your ideas for how we can delight and surprise our international service design peers with an unforgettable, Dutch flavoured conference experience.

Come and join us! Everyone with an interest in ideation and facilitation techniques is invited: service design practitioners, students, lecturers, researchers, managers, etc. There are only 25 places available so apply quickly by sending an email to:

This events, and other events of the Dutch Chapter of the Service Design Network are also announced on our Linkedin group and on the service design website.
