Job Summary As DEED's Director of Customer Innovation, you will lead DEED's efforts to bring human-centered design practices to its customers, to its services, to the way the agency runs, and across the State of Minnesota. You will help DEED better support the customers who depend on its services, and you will nurture a new function we've created within the agency that uses a design-centered approach to problem-solving. Based on customer research and our own experiences, we know that there are many Minnesotans who could benefit from DEED programs but don't know it yet, and that we need to push the envelope in service design to deliver more for the state. One approach we've taken to advance these efforts is to create an Innovation Lab within DEED. This is a place to ideate and test aggressive new solutions to the challenges our customers face. Not every idea that comes out of the Innovation Lab succeeds - by approaching problems without fear of failure, we can end up designing and delivering services and solutions in new ways. The Lab is rooted in the principles of design thinking and serves the entire agency. As Director of Customer Innovation, you will help institutionalize the Lab, and thereby empower teams to create new solutions and processes that allow us to better serve DEED's customers (internal and external). You'll work with cross-functional project teams to identify, understand, and break down challenges to customers accessing DEED's services. You will be a champion for innovation in government and empower our agency to look for new solutions to challenges. Your work will leave a lasting mark on DEED's culture, transform the way DEED serves its customers, and help us live out our mission to empower the growth of the Minnesota economy, for everyone. And your work will serve as a model across the State of Minnesota. If that sounds interesting, we hope you'll apply. This position will be part of the Senior Leadership Team at DEED, directly reporting to the Assistant Commissioner for Operations. Responsibilities Lead cross-functional project teams to identify, understand, and break down challenges to customers accessing DEED's services.

Grow the DEED Innovation Lab; establish processes, operating model and relationship management strategies. Create and implement a framework for identifying opportunities to bring to the Lab; incorporate a fast-fail project management process. Facilitate innovation workshops, teach human centered design (HCD) and Continuous Improvement (CI) tools to staff participants, and train staff trainers in the tools. Work with colleagues across the organization to identify, start, and nurture ideas that enhance the way we serve our customers. Build relationships with external partners to bring in cutting-edge ideas and innovation. Actively reach out across the organization to broaden the base of participation by harnessing the talents, skills and perspectives within our employee base. Build out and offer a menu of options from brown bags and small sprints to how to tackle big challenging projects. Work with team members to advance projects after design sprints to help teams build out the prototypes and test. Bring your skill set to other projects across state government.
