Reviews

"I had to recommend one book to be the first book someone read about service design, it would be this one. One of the main benefits I can see for those reading this book is that it will give them a real clear view of where they need to start with their personal focus, as well as the focus of their business. It’s easy to take the information and say “here’s where I fall short, and here’s what I can do about it. Here’s where my organization falls short, and here’s what we can do about it.” Once these questions are answered, then further reading can be done on methods, techniques, processes, and so forth."
