Abstract

A multidisciplinary approach to service science is necessary in order to study, design, improve, and manage service systems and processes in such a way that they add as much value as possible to their customers. It creates the need for service industry transformation, services innovations, and increasing services quality, productivity, efficiency, and effectiveness. Technology leveraging is identified as the key force enabling the advancement in all three main areas of services research. Its strategic priorities include encouraging service infusion and growth, improving well-being through transformative service, creating and maintaining true and sustained service culture. Service development requires stimulating service innovations, enhancing service design, and optimizing service networks and value chains. Finally, better service implementation encompasses effective branding and selling services, enhancing the service experience through value co-creation, as well as measuring and optimizing the value of services.
