One of the ServDes themes has proposed the need for " T-shaped professionals with deep skills in a specialty and broader understanding of other disciplines " , and asked us to consider " What are the key competencies and skills Service Designers need to develop to help shape promising Service Futures? " Snook propose a workshop where these ideas can be explored in depth, and a series of profiles will be created by participants to illustrate the range and depth of skills of people who call themselves Service Designers. This may result in identification of key skills and core competencies that might form a programme for Continuing Professional Development (CPD) for Service Designers. We will use technology we have been developing as part of the Mozilla Open Badges project with the Technology and Strategy Board (TSB). This technology allows participants to create digital Open Badges using agreed shared technical standards that validate recognised skills and achievements. The badges are a way of visually recording and displaying achievements, qualifications and soft skills.
