Handbook of Management Scales/New service development
New service development (composite reliability = 0.80)[edit | edit source]
Description[edit | edit source]
The authors follow a two-phased approach to develop multi-item scales that measure dimensions of service orientation in the context of business-to-business e-commerce. Service orientation was conceptualized as a third-order construct comprised of five combinative service competency bundles: service climate; market focus; process management; human resource policy; and metrics and standards.
