This chapter is conceptual and starts from practice-based research on innovation to develop a framework of service innovation by integrating a concept of ‘relationality’ into the practice-based approach and specifying sub-practices of service innovation. The framework extends previous approaches to practice-based research on service innovation by seeking to explain more effectively how service innovations are related to the social environment and progressively become stabilized within collective structures – thereby moving the focus of service innovation research from creativity to stabilization. Stabilization refers to the acceptance of an innovation in society and the market. The chapter outlines three relational sub-practices of innovation that describe different types of interactions with the environment related to service innovation at the micro, meso and macro level. These are: the bricolage approach, the system-oriented approach, and the systemic approach. In two case vignettes, the chapter illustrates the framework and discusses implications for research and management.

Innovation and the Creative Process

Towards Innovation with Care

Edited by Lars Fuglsang

This book explores new frameworks and methods of understanding and analysing innovation. These are set against a backdrop of ‘innovation with care’, which is seen as a phenomenon that takes place among many actors with different perspectives, ideas and cultures that must be carefully woven together in order to achieve the benefits of innovation.

This chapter presents the critical incident technique (CIT) and argues that CIT, when combined with other more ‘reflexive’ approaches, can provide an analysis of everyday experiences of services and make these experiences useful for innovation. The chapter seeks to place the critical incident technique in three different research traditions, with examples from services and innovation: positivist–functional, phenomenological–interpretivist and process-oriented reflexive. The value of the critical incident technique as a special interview and research technique for service innovation research is discussed.

The chapter argues that the fields of service, innovation and experience research are still separated, however several studies are emerging at the boundaries between them or establishing linkages among them. This chapter shows that experience and experience industries can be seen as a continuum in relation to service and service industries. At the same time, it is possible to outline two types of integrative perspectives on services and experiences, one that is systemic and one that is practice-based. The first follows from the basic idea that innovation is an interactive process with many actors. The second argues for a unit of analysis called practices, that is, the wider historical conditions of experiences and value creation in order to grasp the complexity of innovation. Furthermore, technological transformation is an important motor of innovation and change in both perspectives.

Services, Experiences and Innovation

Integrating and Extending Research

Edited by Ada Scupola and Lars Fuglsang

Whilst innovation has traditionally focused on manufacturing, recently research surrounding service innovation has been flourishing. Furthermore, as consumers become ever more sophisticated and look for experiences, a research field investigating this topic has also emerged. This book aims to develop an integrated approach to the field of experience and services through innovation by showing that it is necessary to take several factors into account. As such, it makes a substantial and compelling contribution to the interdependencies between innovation, services and experience research.
