"Crafting the Customer Experience" – A “one-size fits all” approach to customer service is no longer viable. Businesses competing on service need to understand and cater to customers’ racial, ethnic, religious, generational and geographic differences in order to meet or exceed customers’ service expectations.
“Uncommon Service” – Harvard Business School professor Frances Frei and co-author Anne Morriss argue that service is a competitive weapon, not just a damage-control function – especially in a volatile economy where the old rules of strategy no longer hold true.
