FAQ1. What does it cost to join ISSIP? Free for individuals (Slide 17: Membership details), and institutions can contact an ISSIP Officer, Board Member, or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Why should I join ISSIP? If you are interested in service, service innovation, service systems and platforms, service science and arts, etc. and belong to an existing professional association with a focus or SIG on service, chances are you have stories that will help the next generation of service innovators, and would qualify as an ISSIP Ambassador to be eligible for sponsorship of your existing conferences, and attract additional submissions to your publications. If you are a student, ISSIP membership can help you build your network and professional reputation. So our view is don’t wait, but instead become a catalyst for change today.3. Does ISSIP compete with SRII or any other organizations? We are not trying to compete with other communities, but ensure support of a “service logic” perspective, promoting innovation regardless of the discipline, sector, or region. By design our goal is to create a global network of service innovators who add value to all others. We do not have our own conference or publication, but support and contribute to those of other organizations. ISSIP has a unique mission, objective, and operating model. Our design goal for ISSIP (as a service system and platform) is a small weekly investment of time, and a big payoff in professional development is our design goal for ISSIP.
FAQ4. How do I become an ISSIP Ambassador to an existing professional association? Register, and then nominate yourself by sending email to email@example.com, you then can propose that ISSIP sponsor a conference with a student best paper award for service innovation5. So I registered, now what? Soon you will be able to easily explore existing SIGs and Chapters at the website, and propose new ones. SIGs and Chapters require about 30 minutes a week commitment, and lead to conference sessions, publications, etc. If you send email to firstname.lastname@example.org we can see if you qualify to become an Ambassador, and then we can work to help you propose activities, like sponsorship (student best paper awards) for the service innovation related conferences you attend or run, and value add benefits for the professional associations you belong to. We can also work with you on sharing a video about your career and interests, or if you are a student about your interests and aspirations.6. Does ISSIP fund service research? Not at this time, but SIGs and Chapters may perform service research activities, and may work together to find funding for service research projects, including from ISSIP sponsor institutions.
FAQ7. I don’t get T-shaped, what is that about? When people had jobs for a life-time, they could specialize and be I-shaped, more and more experienced in their specialization. Those days are gone for most people. Today, adaptive innovators are needed, and they tend to be T-shaped professionals with depth (specialization) and breadth (ability to understand and communicate as a boundary spanner to better integrate and explore, and learn new things faster).8. Why do you call it service innovation, and not just innovation? “Service” is the application of knowledge and resources to co-create value with others. We could call it “knowledge-based value co-creation innovation” and that is just too much of a mouthful. Also, human-serving systems are complex systems that we all depend on.9. Is ISSIP mainly for academics or industry? Both, plus policymakers and social sector professionals. See the coverage (Slide 12: Coverage). Industry practitioners may not work in SIGS with conference sessions and publications as goals, but with goal such as new standards, tools, and best practices as outcomes.
FAQ10. Is ISSIP mainly for students or professionals? Again, both. We are all on a journey to be more T-shaped and adapt to accelerating change.11. Why should businesses become institutional members? If you care about service innovation, then you have professionals that work for you who could benefit from ISSIP. If you are trying to growth your service innovation professionals, their service in ISSIP and filling Ambassdaor, SIG, Chapter, or other Officer, Advisor, or Board roles can be excellent professional development.12. Why should government, foundations, and other organizations become institutional members? Just like businesses, you employ service innovation professionals that impact the productivity and quality of the service offerings you provide society. ISSIP can help your organization develop its professionals, and gain access to a worldwide network of professionals.
FAQ13. Does ISSIP run its own conference? This organization is not as “event” oriented, as other associations, but instead focuses on on-going and iterative exchanges of ideas and insights. We support the conferences of other professional associations and organizations. ISSIP supports their publications venues as well. The design goal of ISSIP is to add value to other professional associations and organizations. By the By-Laws, ISSIP will have open Board Meetings and Annual Member Meetings, with some restrictions on space, and mechanisms for members to vote on important issues and topics.14. How does ISSIP relate to service science? Service science is an emerging discipline that studies service phenomena (as value co-creation, reflecting service-dominant logic mindset) and service systems. ISSIP SIG for Education & Research will help advance service science, management, engineering, design, arts, polictymaking, etc.15. So what’s ISSIP message to me? No matter what region, discipline, or sector you belong to, service innovation is important to your quality of life and quality of career. ISSIP can help you “leverage the matrix” to get important things done. Join us and help us co-create ISSIP. ISSIP is a service system and platform for 21 st century T-shaped professionals. So our view is don’t wait, but instead become a catalyst for change today.

FAQ16. I am still not sure, what should I take away for now? This community is not as “event” oriented as others, but instead focuses on on-going and iterative exchanges of ideas and insights. So our view is don’t wait, but instead become a catalyst for change today. We are not trying to compete with other communities, but ensure support for your service perspective in the evolving ecology of perspectives, promoting service innovations regardless of the discipline, sector, or region.17.

What is Service?• The IHIP fallacy – Intangible If products are tangible then why do auto companies advertise the hedonic values of driving their cars?Intangible: Service is intangible,products are tangible Is a meal in a restaurant tangible?
What is Service?• IHIP definitions If products are homogeneous – Intangible then why is it possible to – Heterogeneous configure many thousands of laptop computers from one brand and model?Heterogeneous: Service isheterogeneous, products arehomogeneous How heterogeneous is a bank teller machine?
What is Service?• IHIP definitions How soon after purchasing a soft – Intangible drink from a machine do you consume it? – Heterogeneous – InstantaneousInstantaneous: Service outputsare used simultaneously with theprovision of the service; productsare used after they are acquired. How soon after getting advice from your doctor do you execute that advice?
What is Service?• IHIP definitions – Intangible How long will your car last? What – Heterogeneous about Chemicals, pharmaceuticals, food, etc? – InstantaneousPerishability: Service outputs – Perishableare perishable and must berenewed. Products arepermanent. When did you stop using your education?
