About the talk

Bad services: Why services fail and what we can do to make them work

- Barbican Centre

It can be hard to work out why great ideas don’t get implemented, harder still to work out what we can do about it.

This talk demystifies the reasons why organisations fail to deliver good services and provides clear and straightforward steps to overcome them, from understanding how to overcome organisational siloes to helping your organisation to see and understand services in the first place.
