A Conversation About Service Design with the Authors of Woo, Wow, and Win: An Event Hosted by Continuum Boston
Service isn't what it used to be. Customer expectations are high, and it's up to companies to meet the public's wants and needs. Firms that design and deliver great service will inspire and retain customers. Those that don't will be at a distinct disadvantage.
