the emotional. I intend to buy a copy for every member of my

This book will introduce you to Service Science, Management
and Engineering (SSME)—a term introduced by IBM
to describe service science, which is the application of science,
management, and engineering disciplines to tasks
that one organization beneficially performs for and with
another. The authors detail the disciplines, principles, insights
and tools of SSME that are now ready to transition
to the mainstream business world with transformative
effect. They coin the new term “Service Thinking” to communicate
this mainstream business transformation.
It includes expository case histories of the service
thinking-based transformation of familiar businesses, illustrating
the seven principles of service thinking, with
compelling examples and clear direction for application.
