Analysis Service dominant logic involves understanding the organizations, markets, and society.
The main foundation of the service-dominant logic is that the organizations, markets, and society are concerned with the exchange of services as opposed to goods1. This involves the use of knowledge and skills. In the tertiary education sectors, the exchange of services is the main activity. In the service market, the services are exchanged for other services. The article looks at the service-dominant logic as the one which gives a broad market perspective as opposed to the traditional market which is composed of goods.
The logic empathizes on the use of skills and knowledge as opposed to the use of goods. These authors look critically at the basis of exchange on the perspective of the service to create value in the market. The process of exchange that empathizes on the exchange of knowledge and skills helps in creating value. This leads to the need of understanding the resources in the context. The author has succeeded in defining the service-dominant market using relevant examples.
This definition gives a clear view of the service-dominant market perspective and how the market functions1.
