This often-quoted classic still has a lot to say about the service frenzy of today’s market, a phenomena that it predicted in its first edition more than fifteen years ago. Karl Albrecht and Ron Zemke have written a powerful, no-nonsense book filled with illustrative examples. If many of their insights seem to be common sense by now, it is only because so many of them have become a part of our collective business unconscious. If this volume was prophetic then (1985), it is indispensable now. getAbstract.com recommends this book to managers and executives throughout the corporate hierarchy.
In this summary, you will learn
- Why service can extend to problems that have not cropped up yet,
- Why good service begins the very moment the customer steps through your door and
- How you can plan a good service strategy to satisfy your customers.
