PhD defence: Marzia Aricò

In order to obtain the PhD degree, Marzia Aricò has submitted her thesis entitled: Service Design as a Transformative Force: Introduction and Adoption in an Organizational Context

Friday, September 28, 2018 - 13:30 to 15:30

The study aims at clarifying the elements characterizing the organizational environment within which service design is introduced and the mechanisms for its adoption. Nine large, western organizations operating across eight different sectors are analyzed, who have all opted to introduce service design to tackle a diverse range of pressing business challenges. The study concludes that service design enters the organization through the emerging customer logic, conceptualized as an organizational logic of competitiveness that reflects a system guiding specific competitive choices.
