This course begins by introducing you to fluctuating customer demands for services which can be addressed in managing capacity within the service processes. You will then learn about how marketing elements in businesses can shape the different demand patterns. You will learn about consumer behaviour, and about how important parts of service processes such as waiting lines can be re-designed to improve customer experience.
You will also learn about how the Three-Stage Model of Service Consumption allows managers to set objectives and to shape consumer behaviour in a deliberate way. Finally, you will learn about the co-creation of business services and about self-service technologies (SSTs) and how methods such as these can be the ultimate form of customer involvement in a service when used properly.
The course uses real-world examples to demonstrate how service businesses and organisations achieve high standards in their customer relationships globally. This course will be of interest to anyone working in service businesses and management and for those who would like to learn more about creating business services that achieve customer satisfaction.Start Course Now
