The Principal Service Designer is responsible for leading holistic service design activities within a designated strategic development area or value stream. He or she champions a design thinking methodology – guiding project teams through the process of capturing, analyzing, and visualizing customer insights; concepting, ideation, prototyping, evaluation and iteration. Solutions generated out of these processes will be truly omni-channel, living in both physical and digital spaces.

A key responsibility is facilitating ideation workshops with cross-functional internal teams, as well as outside design/development partners. This individual must be adept at working with colleagues from research, design, and technology – as well as business SMEs and executives. The Principal Service Designer is a natural collaborator and consensus builder, comfortable both in the field and in the boardroom.

The Principal Service Designer will use a diverse set of methods and tools to illustrate all the components and touchpoints of the service, and co-produce deliverables such as qualitative research reports, customer and employee journey maps, process flows, and prototypes. This leader also helps define service design best practices for Walgreens as we grow our internal practice.
