'Servitisation and Maximising Higher Value Opportunities in the Pre and Post-production Phases' Workshops
The Department of Industry, Innovation and Science are launching a new series of information services workshops on “Servitisation and maximising higher value opportunities in the pre- and post-production phases ”. These workshops are targeted at manufacturing companies and registration is free. Austmine recommends that relevant members consider participating in these workshops, which are confirmed for Adelaide, Perth, Sydney and Melbourne.
The workshops will provide the participants with an understanding for why servitisation is a critical strategy for most manufacturing firms. It will exemplify the typical services that can be provided in the pre and post-production phases of manufacturing activities with a focus on a business-to-business environment. The workshop will also illustrate the typical journey that a servitising manufacturing firm will take and as a consequence the capabilities that the manufacturing firm will have to develop in order to successfully make this journey. Finally, the workshop will discuss the key dimensions of the business model for servitised manufacturing firms.
After this workshop, the participants will be able to make a strategic decision on how far and how fast they will go down the servitisation route. They will also have an understanding for the skills gap that may need to be closed within the firm and also how their existing business model will have to change.
The presenter Göran Roos has held academic positions in Finland, UK, Norway, Japan and Sweden and was named one of the 13 most influential thinkers for the 21st Century by the Spanish business journal. A recognised world expert in modern intellectual capital science and is a member of CSIRO’s Manufacturing Sector Advisory Council amongst other postings.
