Are you interested in creating better service design models to serve job seekers and employers – or addressing other challenges in your local area or State? Here’s a process for launching quick experiments and rapidly iterating ideas in order to ensure that promising ideas make it into the workforce system, despite any resource and regulation constraints. This “Experiment Toolkit” includes step-by-step instructions for designing, planning and running an experiment using the design thinking process and provides examples of past experiments run inside American Job Centers. The toolkit was developed in April 2013 and January 2014 through a partnership between ETA’s Region 6 office and IDEO, with the goal of creating better service design models -- and experimenting with “quick experiments.” Bonus resources: While the toolkit is focused on the experiment process, several additional resources were developed as part of the experiment in the toolkit case study. You can access these here as well: Job Seeker Cards: Hidden Resources Job Seeker Emotional Modes Poster See other example of how IDEO has applied design experiments in related fields: Long Term Unemployment Evolving opportunities for low-income housing communities Design Thinking for Educators For more information on how ETA's Region 6 is using experiments to design services and address other challenges, contact Diane Walton at email@example.com
