Abstract [en]

This paper departs from research on Public Service Logic (PSL) to advance a framework ofpublic service innovation (PSI) by incorporating the notions of resource integration and valueproposition. The framework consists of three resource integration processes, referred to asvalue creation, value co-creation and value facilitation, through which users and employeesdetect problems and suggest solutions that contribute to service innovation by creatingnew, or by developing existing, value propositions. To test and illustrate the framework, astudy of six service innovation groups in primary care was drawn on. Four aggregates ofservice innovation ideas were identified in the study: access, patient experience, physicalenvironment and organization of work. In line with the framework, the findings suggest thatusers and employees contribute to PSI by drawing on their knowledge and experience ofconducting resource integration, and by detecting problems and suggesting solutions to theseproblems.

Abstract [en]

Frontline employees play a key role in service innovation and value creation. However, a detailed and structured understanding of how frontline employees contribute, and what types of roles they enact when involved in service innovation, is lacking. Hence, this thesis aims to explore frontline employees’ contributions to service innovation. The thesis consists of five empirical papers. Data has been collected from both private and public organizations via interviews, observations, documents, and innovation groups.

The three main contributions of this thesis are as follows: Firstly, an extended understanding of how frontline employees contribute to service innovation. It was found that they contribute knowledge generated in three resource integration processes; value facilitation, value co-creation, and by learning from users’ value creation processes. Frontline employees are well equipped to draw on their knowledge and to integrate resources into new or developed value propositions, both during specific service innovation projects and in their day-to-day work practices. Secondly, when involved in service innovation, frontline employees enact different types of roles, e.g. as deliverers, as co-creators, and as negotiators. The third contribution, suggests that front line employees’ contributions to service innovation, as well as service innovation and value creation more generally, can be understood from three perspectives; i) an intra-organizational perspective following a goods-dominant logic, ii) an open-collective perspective, and iii) an open-conflictual perspective, where the latter two are informed by service-dominant logic. Thus, this thesis confirms, develops, and extends previous research by illuminating different ways of creating value and conducting service innovation, relating to frontline employees.

This thesis aims to explore frontline employees’ contributions to service innovation. First, it provides an extended understanding of how frontline employees contribute to service innovation. It was found that they contribute knowledge generated in three resource integration processes, value facilitation, value co-creation, and by learning from users’ value creation processes. Frontline employees are well equipped to draw on their knowledge and to integrate resources into new or developed value propositions, both during specific service innovation projects and in their day-to-day work practices. Second, when involved in service innovation, frontline employees enact different types of roles; e.g. as deliverers, as co-creators, and as negotiators. Third, frontline employees’ contributions to service innovation, as well as service innovation and value creation more generally, can be understood from three perspectives, an intra-organizational perspective following a goods-dominant logic, an open-collective perspective, and an open-conflictual perspective, where the latter two are informed by service-dominant logic. This thesis confirms, develops, and extends previous research by illuminating different ways of creating value and conducting service innovation, relating to frontline employees.
