Influencing behaviour beyond nudging
Many thanks to all fellow DRS2018 delegates for an engaging and inspiring conference discussing the power of design as a catalyst of change. Here you can find my presentation on Rational Overrides; influencing behaviour beyond nudging and my conference paper.
Service organisations struggle to understand and change customer behaviour since it is complex, dynamic, multidimensional and very often not rational. Behavioural sciences can provide us with the ability to fundamentally understand, predict and guide customer behaviour. While service designers increasingly use nudging interventions, we propose that different efforts are needed to increase the chances of having a durable impact.
We introduced rational overrides as an additional approach for influencing behaviour in services at the DRS conference in Limerick. Rational overrides introduce micro moments of friction in the customer journey, which makes customers more active and aware. Livework has collaborated with the Delft University of Technology to develop a toolkit to support service designers, clients and stakeholders to understand and design effective behavioural interventions.
Don’t hesitate to contact us if you would like to continue (or start) the discussion!
