Ecosystem perspective in tourism sector creates added value

Research |  October 3 2018
Breukelen, October 3 2018 - An ecosystem perspective on innovation in the tourism sector is needed. This approach places a much greater focus on the various stakeholders in the innovation, which in turn provides a clearer picture of the long-term success and added value for the customer. That is the message shared by Prof. Dr. Bas Hillebrand in his speech. He claims that tourism is uniquely suited for this due to the many (digital) innovations within the sector, and calls upon the industry to conduct joint research into this perspective. Hillebrand also argues that we can use the results of this research to better understand the extent of businesses’ innovativeness, the acceptance of innovations, the necessary skills and the overall customer experience.

Now that the modern business world is becoming increasingly complex for sales representatives and sales managers, it's time for a new strategy.

The turmoil surrounding the economic situation in Italy has returned in recent weeks. Based on inflation expectations, however, Italian consumers intend to remain in the eurozone. Inflation expectations would indeed rise if the country were to leave the eurozone, though the findings show that inflation expectations actually fall during times of concern over the eurozone’s future. This points to an internal adjustment mechanism within the eurozone. This is one of the conclusions reached by Beau Soederhuizen in his dissertation titled “Empirical studies on (un)conventional policies and macroeconomic adjustment during the crisis”, for which he will receive his doctorate from Nyenrode Business Universiteit on 11 June 2018. At age 26, Soederhuizen is the youngest person ever to earn a PhD from the university.

The main reason cited is that these firms believe they are too small for such a role. This is one of the conclusions of the Internal Audit Monitor 2017 study carried out by FSV Risk Advisory on behalf of the Stichting Vaktechnisch Onderzoek IIA in collaboration with Nyenrode Business Universiteit.
