Abstract: Service economies have developed rapidly to the point at which they dominate many economies. A group of three companies, British Telecom, Hewlett Packard and IBM have been working together to understand how existing service models might develop and in particular, using the UK economy, the role that government support for both pre-competitive and near competitive support might play in this process. This paper summarises one result of those discussions - a proposal to investigate the role of service networks in the development of agile, competitive economies.
