11

One of the reasons we have service management is to help enable value in the form of services, define Value:

**Value = The perceived benefits, usefulness and importance of something**

12

Where does value co-creation come from?

Services and Products

13

When talking about value co-creation what are services

Services are a means of enabling value co-creation by facilitating outcomes customers want to achieve without the customer having to manage certain costs and risks (think electricity, you don't have a powerplant you pay a utility company, you still have the responsibility of having wiring in your house and buying the appliances which is where value co-creation comes from)

14

When talking about value co-creation what are products

**Products** are typically a configuration of an organisations resources (hardware, software etc)

15

Define Service Offering

Service Offering = A formal description of one or more services, designed to address the needs of a target consumer group.

16

What may a service offering commonly include

A Service offering may include goods (ownership is transferred to consumer for physical thing), access to resources (access is granted but ownership isn't granted i.e. O365) and service actions (something a service provider does on behalf of the consumer)


E.G. **POS Service**

Involves goods; Device that interfaces with debit card.

Service Action: Money transferred to a shops bank account

Inventory Control

Payroll Service

17

P.I.E.D.O.D

19

Within the SVC what does Plan do

Plan - Ties into strategic direction of business and if products and services are going to align with that.

20

Continuous improvement

21

What does Engage do within the SVC

Plan - Ties into strategic direction of business and if products and services are going to align with that.

22

Within the SVC what does Design & Transition mean

Design and Transistion - (in ITIL3 this was lifecycle stages) Properly design products and services, they then need to be transitioned into and out of operations in a smooth and non-disruptive manner

23

Within the SVC define Obtain & Build

Obtain and Build - Create or Obtain elements required for service offerings

24

Within the SVC define Deliver & Support

Deliver and Support - Where rubber meets the road, all design and creation for services needs to get to service consumer. Remember: Each activity contributes to value chain by transforming inputs into outputs (i.e. demands from outside value chain, or outputs from other activities)

25

What are some of the common rules (or suggestions) of the SVC

- All incoming and outgoing interactions to external parties are via engage
- All new resources are obtained through obtain and build
- Planning at all levels is via plan
- Improvements at all levels are initiated and managed via Improve

Service Value Chain Example:
A UK Coffee shop owner wants to use a US Companies piece of software for inventory control that ties into the UK's POS system.

The US company will need to make changes to there software to ensure it meets UK legisation, UK delivery time scales and UK Currency data.

What steps might need to be taken and which of the key activities would they fall into

The US Companies "**Plan**" activity would look at strategy to confirm international usage is in vision of company.

The US Companies "**Design Transistion**" activity would create a customised service offering

The US Companies "**Obtain and Build**" and "**Engage**" activities would allow US company to work with delivery companies in UK and Europe

The US Companies "**Deliver and Support**" would ultimately provide this service to UK Business.
