Data underpinning article "Network positioning and risk perception in servitization: evidence from the UK road transport industry"

Bigdeli, Ali and Bustinza, Oscar and Vendrell-Herrero, Ferran and Baines, Tim (2017) Data underpinning article "Network positioning and risk perception in servitization: evidence from the UK road transport industry". [Data Collection]

Collection Method

The paper employs a multiple case study approach, and the data were collected through 14 in-depth, semi-structured, face-to-face interviews with two Senior Executives from seven companies involved in UK road transport (between Jan and Nov 2015). As part of the analysis, we designed a numerical exercise to measure interviewees’ risk perception, based on the 'payment card method’. In this regard, we asked interviewees to ascribe a value to the increase in their firm’s profitability expected from incorporating advanced services into their portfolio.

Statement on legal, ethical and access issues: We have made a verbal agreement with all companies and interviewees that we won’t share any part of the interviews, and we agreed that the information about the background of the companies will be anonymised. The main reasons for not sharing are (1) the individual interviewees did not want to be identified; (2) the data included sensitive financial information, which could not be shared with wider community, and (3) such data could reveal the competitive strategies of the companies involved in the study.
