Aimed at courses in undergraduate Service Marketing and Management, this clear, accessible book presents an integrated approach to the study of services that places marketing issues within a broader general management context. It emphasizes the fact that service organizations differ in many important respects from manufacturing businesses, requiring a distinctive approach to planning and implementing marketing strategy. Coverage is comprised of 16 chapters and 12 short- to medium-length cases that let readers apply what they've learned to real-world settings and fully understand the complexities of service management—including the interactions between marketing, operations, and human resources.

Principles of Service Marketing and Management, Second Edition, is designed to complement the materials found in traditional marketing principles texts. It avoids sweeping and often misleading generalizations about services, recognizing explicitly that the differences between specific categories of services (based on the nature of the underlying service process) may be as important to student understanding as the broader differences between goods marketing and services marketing.
