• Despite the growing awareness of the importance of servitization of manufacturing, relatively little study has been performed on how organizational elements may or may not enhance the value creation of manufacturing, and even less in the developing countries. The present study aims to bridge this gap by examining the impact of a set of organizational elements on the service-enhancement in a sample of ICT industry in China. The results of a multivariate analysis indicate that the degree of service-enhancement (measured by product, customer and financial performance) can be well explained by five organizational elements (service technological capability, strategic orientation (including market and innovation orientation), organization design, and resources endowment). Therefore, it is necessary for organizations to consider organizational elements in implementing servitization in manufacturing firms. ()
