Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

Poor performance is becoming more of the norm in today's business environment. This book, to be serialized in the Harvard Business Review , examines this "service crisis" and offers explanations as to why it has developed and how organizations can change it. Six basic elements are presented which the authors feel are essential for improving customer services: strategy, leadership, personnel policies, design, infrastructure, and measurement. Individual chapters are devoted to each of these areas. Thoroughly researched and well written, this is similar in theme to Linda Silverman Goldzimer's I'm First: Your Customer's Message to You , with Gregory L. Beckman ( LJ 4/1/89). Recommended for most collections. Fortune and Macmillan Book Club alternates.

Top Customer Reviews

Format: Paperback
I highly recommend this book to anyone who wishes to excel in giving good customer service. I have a background in retail, social psych, and market research, with experience in customer satisfaction research studies - and I found this book extremely useful. Not only did I learn a lot from it, but it also put much of what I have learned along the way (and feel as a consumer) into writing! It can help you plan a customer service program for your store or company, whether your company is brand-new or pre-existing. It is a little dry at times, but also has some great examples of what you should do or not do. I'd buy the book just for them!
