This project examines how innovation and branding help service firms create service offerings that are seen
by customers as superior and ensure superiority and sustainability in profits. The research areas addressed
in this project are prioritized by research institutions, government bodies, industry associations and scholars
as being of major theoretical and practical significance. In this area, innovation and branding are stated as
the Next Big Thing in the services sector, which now dominate the economies of most industrialized nations.
