Service network productivity with data analytics

 

Examine and document the process for one of the services cases studies provided. Redesign the service and discuss the impacts on process execution, orchestration and choreography. Discuss the business process compliance monitoring and resolution issues.

Service organisations operate in a process-environment for creating value, but often don’t recognise the underlying process flows in terms of throughput (capacity), queue build-up, and process flow time (responsiveness). As such service value management and the understanding of service processes and associated dynamics has lately become a strategic driver for developing and/or maintaining a sustainable competitive edge. The area of services science is very quickly evolving, and students need to expose themselves to the latest developments in this field.

ln this context, each individual chooses one of the HBR cases provided in class (Max of 4-5 students per case will be allocated and HBR case allocations will be on first come first basis and will be emailed to you).
