As the Director of Service Design, I led cross-functional service design and innovation initiatives at Marketo. Faced with a significant opportunity to set the standard in an industry (enterprise software) where service is rapidly becoming the differentiator, we addressed some classic organizational challenges associated with multi-touch point service delivery. These include working in a more systemic (not siloed) manner, embracing exploration (not just execution), and valuing solutions driven by customer insight (not just business data).
To address these challenges and more, we created a classic customer experience framework that establishes a common language for cross-functional collaboration, and successfully piloted and globally launched the first of several new service experiences.
