Cambridge Service Alliance

developing new understanding and approaches to complex service systems

Studying at Cambridge

Designing Competitive Service Models

This is a working paper by Veronica Martinez and Trevor Turner. This paper presents a case study where we traced the value propositions’ shifts of a single firm over 40 years. The firm’s strategic decisions, market adaptation and influencing factors triggering the shift to new offerings are discussed. Then, the paper introduces a value proposition framework for organizations to diagnose the design and delivery of service value propositions. This framework could trace the endurance and adaptability of value propositions in the market at a longer term.
