Final Service Management Assignment

 

Strategic Service Vision report (Individual)

 

Many organisations face choices regarding the types of services they   wish to offer and to whom, and the operational procedures they employ. Strategic Frameworks are sometimes used to assist in these decisions. Using your company’s strategic service vision as a template and relevant strategic service management frameworks, provide an overview of your organisation, its ‘target market segments’ and its service concept’. In addition to the above, the following questions should be addressed:

  • Outline your core and peripheral services that make up the bundle of services you will offer to your customers.
  • Provide a description of the proposed servicescape.
  • The service sector is now a key generator of economic prosperity in many countries. However, changes in the context in which businesses operate are having an impact on their ability to provide this economic wealth. Using online articles and newspieces published in the past three years, identify three current issues that would impact on your specific organisation. You will need to include evidence of these in your bibliography.
  • Using a range of sources of information, including both media articles and academic literature as supporting evidence, identify and evaluate four factors that you think will impact on your business in the future

.

Guidelines to your Strategic Service Vision report

 

This assessment is designed as an experiential learning exercise by having you apply theoretical concepts to a potential real-world situation in a critical manner. You should adopt the mindset of real business owner/investor for the organisation you have selected to base your report on.

Your strategic service vision report must be presented using academic report format. It should conform to the following format and should also include a professionally laid out the table of contents prior to the executive summary.

 

Important: In order to determine the service strategy, you should define the purpose, objectives and scope of service strategy and explain the value service strategy provides to the business. Describe value creation through the services portfolio-both core and peripheral. Please use Michael Porter’s competitive strategies framework to explain the service provider’s market positioning and value proposition.
