Developing services with customer- and future-orientation
Vanhustyön keskusliitto is Finland's largest national organization in the field of elder work, which emphasizes the voice of elder workers and does advocacy of more than 300 member communities to promote the well-being, functional capacity and social security of older people and the elderly. The association offers solutions that work for the everyday life of aging through its own services as well as those of its member communities.
Together with its members, the union plays a significant role as a builder and enabler of a good old age. The association wanted to clarify the vision of membership activities and the roadmap for the development of services, taking into account the growing needs of the membership and changes in the operating environment.
Designing the service map by taking one step ahead and involving members
The project consisted of three parts:
- See further, future workshop: changing operating environment, the service map of tomorrow and hypotheses
- Designing together with the members: Participatory interviews and validating the findings with the member network
- A multi-stakeholder vision workshop and next steps forward
A clear vision and next steps forward
As the end-result, Vanhustyön keskusliitto received a clarified vision of member activities and a strategic road map with concrete development measures. A better understanding of the needs of different member segments and the changing operating environment will steer the union towards a better tomorrow.
