    Abstract

    The focus of this paper is on the creation of industrial service businesses by companies transforming from manufacturers into service providers. This enormous change brings not only new business opportunities but also significant uncertainties to be managed. In order to simultaneously manage the risks and identify the business opportunities, systematic management approaches are needed. In this paper, we address the need for various applications of uncertainty management based on four case studies.
