This course is an introduction to creating consumer off-boarding experiences for products, services and digital products.
The four hour session will be a mix of lectures, individual and group activities. Attendees will investigate bespoke new tools and approaches to help them create world class consumer experiences. They gain practical skills that improve the design of product, service and digital off-boarding.
Attendees will build a new perspective of the consumer lifecycle and experience new approaches that define this emerging area of product development.
Delivered online via Zoom and Mural.
We create rich, emotional and meaningful experiences to on-board the consumer. In contrast, the off-boarding of the consumer experience is barren of emotion and meaning. This sacrifices consumer action, holds back engagement; limiting reflection and responsibility.
The off-boarding of the consumer is an untapped area of action in the consumer lifecycle. It can help businesses align with new business models, increase consumer engagement, raise customer satisfaction, broaden business influence, pre-empt legislation, and maximise sustainability.

The facilitator – Joe Macleod
Joe Macleod is founder of the worlds first customer ending business. A veteran of product development industry with decades of experience across service, digital and product sectors. Author of the Ends book. Head of Endineering at AndEnd. TEDx Speaker.Wired says “An energetic Englishman, Macleod advises companies on how to game out their endgames. Every product faces a cycle of endings, from breakage to customer burnout to falling behind consumption trends. It’s important to plan for each of them. Not all companies do.”
The Ends book.
The Ends book considers the historical, philosophical, sociological perspective of why consumerism has overlooked off-boarding experiences. This provides a solid background to the wider theme of endings and this training.
The next book is: Endineering
The course will be based on some aspects of Ends and a great deal of Endineering. Neither book is required for the course.
Attendees of this course will get a free Ends e-book at course completion.
