    Abstract

    Future competitiveness of business operations under the dynamic and complex business situations relies on forward-thinking strategies. In this research, we study how to implement Sustainable Competitive Advantage (SCA), the highly competitive operation strategy for managing new business situations through fast strategy by integrating manufacturing and technology strategies with transformational leadership profiles of the decision makers. Moving towards service-oriented business models introduces new risks that must be taken into account in the development of new services. There is a need to consider risks in customer collaboration, information exchange among service value network partners, and capabilities related to collaboration and communication. The objectives of this study were: 1. To study how analytical models for evaluating the overall operational competitiveness can be applied in service business development; 2. To test these analytical models with case companies under dynamic and unforeseen business situations such as dealing with the economic crisis and expanding the business in global context; 3. To study what are the novel and effective uncertainty management principles and practices in service business and international service networkswith several and diverse actors.
