How Technology is Changing the Management of Services
Speaker:
Prof. Dr. Marc M. Davis, Bentley University
Abstract
Technology is creating a hyper-competitive environment in which service often provides a company
with a competitive advantage. At the same time technology, specifically information technology, is
dramatically changing how services are being delivered. We also need to acknowledge that services
involve people. This is especially true for the ultimate end user who is always a person. The current
state of services is discussed at both the macro and micro levels and existing trends in service
management and their underlying causes are introduced. One trend in particular, open service
innovation, which involves customers in the design of new services, is presented in detail.
Der unternehmerische Einsatz von Technologien führt zu einem extrem wettbewerbsintensiven
Umfeld, in dem Dienstleistungen einem Unternehmen häufig zu einem Wettbewerbsvorteil verhelfen.
Gleichzeitig verändert der Technologieeinsatz, speziell der Einsatz von Informationstechnologie (IT),
dramatisch die Art und Weise, wie Dienstleistungen erbracht werden. Dabei muss berücksichtigt
werden, dass die Dienstleistungserbringung die Einbindung von Menschen erfordert. Das gilt im
Besonderen für den eigentlichen Nutzer der Dienstleistung, der immer eine Person ist. In diesem
Vortrag wird der aktuelle Stand der Dienstleistungserbringung diskutiert und aktuelle Trends im
Servicemanagement und deren Ursachen sowohl auf der Makro- als auch der Mikroebene
beschrieben. Hierbei wird insbesondere das Thema Open Service Innovation im Detail betrachtet,
wobei es um die Einbindung des Kunden in die Entwicklung neuer Dienstleistungen geht.
