Service Productivity and Quality Challenge (9780792334477)

  • Section I addresses the economy-wide problems of measuring service productivity and its impact on economic performance. The growing volume and recognition of trade and international competition in services is the subject of Section II. The first two sections together outline the broad parameters facing the economy and individual managers as they struggle to improve service productivity in an increasingly competitive international market. The specific steps to be taken are addressed in Section III. Section IV presents an operations management perspective on the productivity problem. Section V presents the problems and opportunities that exist in productivity improvement in market services (i.e. those industries where some degree of competition and market pricing exists). Finally, non-market services, a vital part of all developed economies, are discussed in Section VI.
    The Service Productivity and Quality Challenge presents the state of the art thinking on the service productivity challenge from a variety of disciplines. Rather than a cursory view of each discipline's perspective, the papers go into detail on each subject or industry. Taken as a whole, they provide a panoramic view of the problem and its potential solutions.
