Digital Marketplace Architect
Slimming World, a renowned weight loss organization, required a service design overhaul for its decade-old weight tracking and management software. The existing system was reliant on outdated devices, and the operating system was nearing the end of its support lifecycle.
In the Discovery phase of the project, I led the effort to understand the current state by conducting extensive research, including 15 business interviews, 12 consultant interviews, 3 group shadowing sessions, 2 co-design workshops, and 1 vision workshop.
Gathered insights from interviews, workshops, and observations to create an 'as-is' user experience map.
