Why service design? Service design isn’t just the development of e-services or fancy approaches to customer service enterprises. Service design helps you to face daily issues in your organisation’s structure, processes, client satisfaction, cost management etc. Service design aims to ensure clear and transparent functioning. It’s an integral toolbox for all the organisations to overcome management challenges.

To gain comprehensive data suitable to elaborate comparison in the field of KPIs between PuRE-net members we are about to use data from the last PuRE-net survey and a new additional questionnaire that we kindly ask you to fill in. If you did not answer the TWN/PuRE-net Survey, please fill in the data here. If you did answer but you want to correct your previous answers you can do it here. The aim is to include the findings developed of the Strategy WT, concerning strategic paradigms and business models of PuRE-net members. The business model is important in order to find and evaluate KPIs which can be compared between our organizations.

We kindly ask you to express your interest to take part at the WT on KPIs before 31st March 2017 via these e-mails.
