New service development culture (composite reliability = 0.69; average variance extracted = 0.37)[edit | edit source]

Description[edit | edit source]

The authors report a two-stage approach for the development and validation of new multi-item measurement scales reflecting a multidimensional construct called new service development competence. It is operationalized as a multidimensional construct reflected by five complementary dimensions: new service development process focus, market acuity, new service development strategy, new service development culture, and information technology experience.

Definition[edit | edit source]

New service development competence reflects an organization’s expertise in deploying resources and routines, usually in combination, to achieve a desired new service outcome. New service development culture captures the values and beliefs fostered by the service organization that indicate a willingness and desire to innovate.

Comments[edit | edit source]

Much efforts have been made by the authors in order to ensure that the new scales exhibit sufficient psychometric properties, which make them quite useful. However, the values of both composite reliability and specificially average variace extracted are too low. Thus, this scale may not be used without modifications and/or new items.
