Faculty Message:

"Why are a few service organizations better in and year out at what they do than their competitors? Outstanding service organizations are managed differently from their merely good competitors. Missions are stated differently. Managers act differently. Actions are based on totally different assumptions about the way success is achieved. Heskett J, et al. at HBS have developed and tested with quantifiable measures of a set of these relationships that they have come to call the service profit chain. Acquiring this concept through case discussion definitely help you mobilize your organization. The more you express your thoughts, the deeper you understand the concept."
