Thesis project description
Digitalization strategies in the frame of servitized companies, with special reference to the barriers and problems to its application, given that there are external and internal enabling factors that can be or can not be controlled by the organisation, with the perspective of analysing empirical data and gather relevant theory about how to create a canvas that can show the set of factors that can be measured, studied, and controlled by the organisation, according to the theoretical frameworks of Service-dominant logic and the holistic Digital Transformation (especially post-covid-19).
Managerial value of the research
By gathering theory that explains the digitalization and servitization phenomenons. While gathering empirial data from different organizations and industries in different stages of such transformation I aim to create a comprehensive general view of the components that will enable a succesfull revision, planning, and, finally, execution of the strategies.
The final knowledge will be summarized in a canvas that will facilitate the understanding of the level of digitalization the studied organizations is, and the enabling factors that can be addressed to achieve success.
Your organization will understand the level of digitalization and will be able to set the ground base of a revisited digitalization strategy.
