Alexandra Coghlan 2019 Introduction to Sustainable Tourism 1. Cocreation and servicedominant logic Co-creation of value depends on having personalised experiences, engagement, and co-production Service dominant logic (SD logic)

considers value-in-use and co-creation of value Alexandra Coghlan 2019 Introduction to Sustainable Tourism Alexandra Coghlan 2019 Introduction to Sustainable Tourism The application of specialised skills and knowledge is the fundamental unit of exchange Indirect exchange masks the fundamental basis of exchange. Goods are a distribution mechanism for service provision. 10

Foundational premises of SD Logic Operant resources are the fundamental source of competitive advantage All economies are service economies. The customer is always a co-creator of value. The enterprise cannot deliver value, only offer value propositions. A service-centered view is inherently customer oriented and relational. All social and economic actors are resource integrators. Value is always uniquely and phenomenologically

determined by the beneficiary.
