The Spring Servitization Conference 2015

Servitization: the theory and impact

18 & 19 May 2015, Aston Business School, Aston University, UK


Servitization continues to grow substantially. Whether driven by concerns over competitors from low cost economies, environmental and economic sustainability, demands for market growth or the potential to exploit new Information and Communication Technologies, more and more manufacturers are innovating their business models to include greater revenue generation around services.
