Leposky is a 2nd year student and her research is focused on the influence of customer knowledge transfer in the development of service concepts in multinational corporations. The research attempts to clarify the dynamics of customer knowledge transfer in the relationships between customers, Finnish subsidiaries and foreign headquarters. The expected results will allow Leposky to draw conclusions regarding the companies’ ability to utilise knowledge from customers to create value through services and service models. The study is supervised by Professor Jorma Larimo and Dr Minnie Kontkanen.
