An adaptive innovator / service science practitioner / versatilist in any job role can play a key role in managing across a broad set of business and technical disciplines using pertinent client and offering information.
They will ensure that new service implementations or adaptation of existing environments should not only consider the IT alternatives but also how factors such as cultural and human system dynamics influence the technology selection and implementation of a total solution offering. They have the ability to analyze and model large and/or complex service systems across all private or public sectors of the service economy.
They demonstrate customer interaction skills equivalent to a business consultant seeking to improve productivity, quality, regulatory compliance, or innovation of a service system.
Sustainability of effectiveness in this role will require an on-going discovery, analysis, and implementations of emerging services innovation frameworks and tools.
