Title The Service Transformation Game: Snakes and Ladders to Advanced Services 
Description A board game based on the classic game 'Snakes and Ladders' but with an advanced services twist. Snakes and ladders is a game involving two or more players, who compete to progress through squares on a grid by rolling a dice and moving their token the corresponding number of steps. The grid is occupied with snakes and ladders. If a player lands on a snakes head, they must move back to the end of the snake's tail. If a player lands on the bottom of a ladder, then they move forward to the top. In the Service Transformation Game, the steps on the grid are associated with transformation steps towards advanced services, while snakes and ladders represent barriers and enablers associated with these steps, respectively. 
Type Of Art Artefact (including digital) 
Year Produced 2017 
Impact The game has been used in various workshops since its inception in 2017 with senior executives from small, medium and large manufacturing enterprises. The game has proven to be very succesful as an engaging tool to educate participants about the transformation steps towards advanced services, and for obtaining qualitative data related to the perceived barriers and enablers in the transformation steps and stages. 
 
Description This ICT cluster grant has enabled discoveries in servitization, gamification, and the development of complementary communities in research and practice. About Servitization: Analysis of earlier findings indicated a significant opportunity for manufacturers to grow and become financially sustainable through the development and delivery of advanced services. To set the agenda from a more theoretical perspective, we initially developed an extensive research framework based on the analysis of 232 journal publications on servitization (published between 1988 and 2015). This framework demonstrates (i) the developed topics, which identify relatively established knowledge relevant to the topic of servitization, (ii) the developing topics which identify the growing concentrations and opportunities, and (iii) the undeveloped topics which identify significant opportunities for further exploratory studies. Based on this primary research, we identified two key gaps in literature and practice related to the topic: (i) what is the vision for advanced services and how these offerings could be defined? And (ii) what stages of organisational transformation does a manufacturer follow when servitizing to compete through advanced services? To address the first gap, we conducted research that drew evidence from prior literature and industry practices to synthesise a set of foundational propositions that collectively describe how a manufacturing firm can compete through advanced service as a new business model. To address the second gap, we developed a holistic and integrative framework that guides the transformation process that takes place as a product-centric manufacturer servitizes in order to compete through advanced services. This framework shows that the transformation process can be explained as four principal stages of maturity, which the manufacturer proceeds through according to the pressures of five principal forces. These scientific insights into servitization have both contributed to the body of knowledge, have been core to the gamification research, and have been foundational in forming the broader community around this topic. About Gamification: Our research into games and gamification has been undertaken in parallel to the servitization research to support engagement with advanced services. At the outset of this project we found that the field of gamification research is much more recent and far broader than that of servitization. Our findings from the servitization research, and working alongside both manufacturing and games development organizations, served to demonstrate that previously established theories, methods and models of games and gamification are insufficient for engaging manufacturing organizations with business model transformation. By aligning servitization research with established approaches to simulations, game-based learning and gamification, we were able to thoroughly understand the limitations of existing methods and techniques for applying gamification to business model innovation within manufacturing. We were then able to develop a process which overcomes these limitations by taking into account the requirements and constraints of different participants in gamification projects. This process was refined through the development of games and gamified applications, co-created with manufacturing and/or game development organizations. The process was then evaluated in practice, and this illustrated (i) low tech games and gamified activities can be both captivating while supplying rich sources of qualitative data, and (ii) games and gamified applications that are disseminated digitally are more appropriate for obtaining quantitative data and engaging organizations at scale. Iterations of the gamification process, informed by these findings, can facilitate the development of various activities and applications that serve a range of purposes. About Communities: In addition to the scientific findings, this ICT cluster grant also set out to form communities of relevant researchers and practitioners. In particular, we have enabled the development of close relationships with both large and small (SMEs) manufacturing firms to understand their organisational change towards servitization and advanced services. To facilitate this, we have formed our Advanced Services Partnership, which enables our researchers to engage in a mutually beneficial partnership allowing manufacturers to better understand the servitization business model. The goal of the partnership is defined as "To accelerate the adoption of advanced services across a range of manufacturing businesses." The partnership consists of members from significant multinational manufacturing, each competing in a different business sector, each on a journey to develop and deploy advanced services, and each engaged at an executive level. Our workshops have covered a range of topics on servitization, for example the first workshop was held in October 2015 at KLM-Air France facilities in Amsterdam to cover the understanding the journey towards the adoption of advanced services, and the second workshop was held in January 2016 a partner manufacturing company in Luxembourg to analyse the business model design and customer value proposition for advanced services. Subsequent round tables have been held in Birmingham, Amsterdam, Atlanta, Derby, Rugby, Milford Massachussetts, London and Washington DC and have been hosted by and engaged with a range of companies including GE Power, Rolls Royce, JCB, Cisco, Caterpillar, GE Power and Volvo . These round tables regularly occur every four months and are a strong platform for industrial collaboration. Companies that have been members of the partnership are Goodyear, Yanmar, Ishida, Cisco, Emerson, Waters, Nederman, Crown, Domino Printing Sciences, Baxi, and Legrand.
A new Whitepaper on Performance Advisory Services has been published. Produced in conjunction with senior executives from manufacturing companies, including Siemens, Ishida Europe and GE Power, the Whitepaper focuses on ways to create value through digital technologies and servitization and provides insights on using digital technologies to improve productivity in a manufacturing context.
Exploitation Route Our findings can be taken forwards by both the industrial and academic communities. In the research community our concepts and frameworks have formed cornerstones for researchers seeking to advance servitization. For example, the concept of advanced services, introduced through our work, is now a growing topic in the literature. This is, however, currently focussed on manufacturing, and there are considerable opportunities to expand this into other sectors, such as transport and finance. For industry, our work is enabling manufacturers to frame their service transformation, and there are now over 100 firms collaborating with our group.

To ensure these findings continue to be taken forward, we have established a number of pathways to impact for example, (i) Since 2013, we have organised the annual Spring Servitization Conference to bring a variety of academics in the field and manufacturing businesses with an interest in servitization together. Attendance is generally between 80 and 110 delegates. Conference papers are published in the conference proceedings which are printed and available online; (ii) our spinout company, The Advanced Services Group, was incorporated in October 2015, and focusses on advanced services consultancy. This company is facilitating and enabling practitioners to directly access the practical applications of our research; (iii) gamification workshops and conferences have engaged both enthusiasts and industry practitioners, some of whom have developed their own gamification companies and technological platforms based upon engagement with our research. We anticipate that these individuals and organizations will continue to experience growth following our continued engagement, and (iv) our gamification techniques have informed teaching and learning at our respective institutions, with the development of a centre for games in education being explored at Aston University.

Description The overall aim of this project was to transform the adoption of Product-Service Systems and servitization within mainstream manufacturing and accelerate the development of gamification (technologies, design principles & protocols) in strategic business decision making. The adoption of Product-Service Systems has been driven by formalising our knowledge of the barriers, risks, paths and contingencies that enable manufacturers to adopt such new concepts. There have been a high number of outputs from the programme, for example: Developed 5 apps/games to aid engagement with industry: 'Servitization Bingo', 'Unlock your insight', 'Drilling for Success', 'The Boardroom Game' and 'The Servitization Game: Snakes and Ladders to Advanced Services'. These have been used to help engage business leaders in our partnership programme, as well as workshops, conference sessions and executive education Published over 45 scholarly journal and conference papers Published 7 industry whitepapers on servitization Participated in 232 (from Feb 2013 to March 2019) business engagement activities, such as keynotes and presentations at industry conferences or workshops. Produced 'What is Servitization?' animation. Organised seven Spring Servitization Conferences that have resulted in delivery of over 197 academic papers. Developed advanced services transformation roadmap. Engaged 4,000 undergraduate students with gamification through long course programmes. Recruited six PhD/DBA candidates studying servitization. Hosted "Product-Service Systems and the Servitization of Manufacturing" as part of an ESRC Business Model Seminar Series. Invited to attend 10 Downing Street to discuss value of servitization to the UK economy. Produced workbook on gamification systems development Facilitated further funding for a partner games company (Eyesparks) for the development of a gamified learning platform In terms of specific industrial impact, the knowledge created through this EPSRC funding has informed our work with 157 SME's which, as a direct result, has delivered £32.85m impact on GVA. In December 2018 the Advanced Services Group published a book of thirty case studies which demonstrated impact of £9.9m of new revenue and 89 new jobs created. These 30 case studies came from our work with 80 manufacturing or technology innovating SMEs across the West Midlands and the 30 selected came from a variety of sectors and of different sized organisations to reinforce the benefits of servitization to small and medium sized enterprises. Our work with SMEs was commended in the 'Project of the Year' category in the Impact Awards for Knowledge Exchange and Commercialisation (KEC) professionals, organised by PraxisUnico and supported by Research Councils UK. http://www.aston.ac.uk/news/releases/2017/june/aston-praised-for-advanced-services-support-to-smes/ In addition, we have established an exclusive network of likeminded business executives applying leading practices. The partnership is for larger manufacturing organisations traditionally production- focused, and now in the earlier stages of exploring, developing and deploying advanced services. Our work with large businesses, such as Goodyear, has formed the basis of an EPSRC Impact report. https://www.epsrc.ac.uk/files/newsevents/publications/case-studies/2016/key-advantage/ ASG continue to build on the foundations laid by this project and further impact is continuously being created in a number of ways The games and research findings from the project will continue to inform large companies that are part of the Advanced Services Partnership and also be used with SMEs via a new grant on our Small Business Programme. We have secured £1.45m for a three-year project to support 95 manufacturing and technology-innovating, firms to identify new revenues streams by adding services to support their product(s). This follows from the successful delivery of the £1.2m TRAN-SIP programme in the Greater Birmingham and Solihull area which ran during 2016-18 and supported 80 firms to improve their revenues and employ more staff. Further research funding awarded from the Newton Fund - UK China Agri-Tech Challenge, Innovate UK and the BBSRC in November 2018 will fund a project titled 'Next generation rice processing'. The £2.067 million project will be delivered in collaboration with Sheffield Hallam University (project lead), Siemens, Koolmill, Cox & Plant, and New-Food Innovations. Koolmill's Managing Director Alec Anderson, who is one of Aston Business School's Visiting Industrial Fellows, is a key partner in the project. The global milling machine market potential is worth £11.25bn p/a and Koolmill holds patents for its grain separation technology covering 75% of the global rice market. As part of the project, ASG has been awarded £250k to focus on business models, revenue models and contractual arrangements for the delivery of advanced services in this area - particularly for SMEs. Further EPSRC funding, (EP/R044937/1 Digitally Enhanced Advanced Services Network+), has also been awarded to create a cohesive community of researchers and practitioners, working collectively across disciplines (eg computer science,engineering and business) and industry sectors (eg manufacturing, transport and financial services, to accelerate the innovation of Digitally Enhanced Advanced Services. The Digitally Enhanced Advanced Services NetworkPlus is managed in collaboration with Universities of Exeter, Greenwich, Nottingham and Cranfield University. Furthermore we have acquired additional grants on the area of gamification and game based learning, and we have engage with the rail industry. We have acquired RSSB funded projects in partnership with Chiltren Railways , and we are currently investigating the use of virtual reality and gamification for passengers with Visual impairments (https://www.rssb.co.uk/News/Pages/rail-accessibility-competition-winners-announced.aspx)
