On 24 February, 2012, people interested in service design and using design-based approaches to problem solving and creativity came together in cities all around the world as part of the 2012 Global Service Jam. In a spirit of experimentation, co-operation and friendly competition, teams had 48 hours to develop brand new services inspired by the secret shared theme – hidden treasure.
Mikaela Griffiths at the Department of Industry, Innovation, Science, Research and Tertiary Education organised the Canberra Jam.
Come and join us to have a drink and listen to Mikaela that is going to share this experience with us and and how potentially this Service Jam could be extended to the Government.
Mikaela Griffiths worked for the Department of Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry from January 2008 until June 2010 and designed the $200 million Reef Rescue election commitment. Following that, until last year she worked on the Caring for our Country Review Taskforce reviewing Australia’s $2 billion natural resource management investment. She currently works as an innovation manager at the Department of Innovation in Canberra.
