Walgreens - Head of User Experience and Service Design

Design Thinking in Omni-Channel Retail

As digital and physical retail touchpoints co-exist in our mobilized world, we strive to create a seamless customer experience across channels. Design thinking can help make that happen. At Walgreens, we are evangelizing practices like customer journey mapping, co-design with customers, and iterative ideate-prototype-test cycles. This flavor of innovation has been part of our digital practice from the beginning, and now we’re extending it to the store experience that’s been around since 1901. This presentation will walk through some real-life examples of how we’ve succeeded (and sometimes failed) at bringing new products and services to the market.
