What Do We See Through the Service-Dominant Lens? Insights from a Swedish Public Service Case

Westrup, Ulrika LU (2017) THE EUROPEAN INSTITUTE OF RETAILING AND SERVICES STUDIES (EIRASS)
Abstract (Swedish)
The service-dominant logic in the context of public services has only previously been studied empirically to a very limited degree. The purpose of this article is to provide knowledge of what the theory of service-dominant logic makes visible in public service practice. The empirical material is case concerning a new public service organisation – a service centre. The professionals’ own experiences of how they perform their day-to-day work constitutes the material, which has been gathered in via interviews and focus group interviews. The result shows that the service dominant perspective makes visible: (1) the poor exchange of resources between service systems internally and externally: (2) that deeper knowledge of what is value-creating...
