3 Innovation in Services Basic Research: Pursue a planned search for new knowledge regardless of possible application. Applied Research: Apply existing knowledge to problems in creation of new service. Development: Apply knowledge to problems to improve a current service. 4-3


5 Challenges for Service Innovation Ability to protect intellectual and property technologies. Incremental nature of innovation. Degree of integration required. Ability to build prototypes or conduct tests in a controlled environment. 4-5

6 Levels of Service Innovation Radical Innovations Major Innovation: new service that customers did not know they needed. Start-up Business: new service for underserved market. New Services for the Market Presently Served: new services to customers of an organization.
