  • Approaches Service Science as a coherent discipline and as a family of research programs, in a full-length research article format
  • Provides a compendium of perspectives from engineering, science, business and legal, both academic and practical
  • Includes contributions from an acclaimed pool of experts from industry and academia

Traditional service sectors encompass a wide variety of industries ranging from transportation, retail and healthcare to entertainment, banking, and insurance. As the service sector expands into the global economy, a new science of service is emerging, one that is dedicated to encouraging service innovation by applying scientific understanding, engineering discipline, and management practice to designing, improving, and scaling service systems.

This seminal reference considers Service Science to be the study of value co-creation, and finds abundant common elements and themes, common concerns and approaches that converge on this central, real-world phenomena. Handbook of Service Science takes the first major steps to clarifying the definition, role, and future of this nascent field. Incorporating work by scholars from across the spectrum of service research, the volume presents multidisciplinary perspectives on the nature and theory of service, on current research and practice in design, operations, delivery, and innovation of service, and on future opportunities and potential of service research.

Handbook of Service Science provides a comprehensive reference suitable for a wide-reaching audience including researchers, practitioners, managers, and students who aspire to learn about or to create a deeper scientific foundation for service design and engineering, service experience and marketing, and service management and innovation.
