Title: Innovations In Hospitality Management

 

Author: Ravi Sharma

Innovation in Hospitality and Tourism presents empirical studies that identify the major'push and pull'factors of innovation in hospitality and tourism, providing vital information on how to measure innovation in the control and sustainable management of new service development.

With hospitality markets saturated and clients selecting services from all over the world, it's not enough to have an innovative idea for a new tourism product'your idea has to have the potential to be successfully marketed. This book looks at methods of measuring the market-based applications of new processes, products, and forms of organization, the economic impact of innovation, innovation as a bipolar process between market and resources, and forms of cooperation that can strengthen and reinforce innovation. The present book is an invaluable resource for academics, professionals, practitioners, and researchers working in the field of hospitality and tourism.(Source)
