`An excellent book aimed at researchers interested in the field of service quality, and as such deals with conceptual and empirical researches based on different service quality perspectives (marketing, operations management, and organisational studies)' - Managing Service Quality

The last three decades have seen a dramatic increase in the attention businesses devote to their quality of service. Scholars and researchers in a number of disciplines, including marketing, human resources I/O psychology, sociology, and consumer behavior, have all made substantial contributions to understanding what service is, how service and service delivery quality are experienced by customers, and the role of employees and their organizations in service delivery. Service Quality: Research Perspectives presents a comprehensive overview and analysis of the field and its research, including its growth, emerging trends, and debates.

Authors Benjamin Schneider and Susan S White cover the diverse conceptual and empirical approaches that characterize thinking and research on service quality, especially service delivery. It introduces the concept of service and the important ways service production can differ from goods production. It also presents a history of the concept of product quality and the emergence of concern for service quality.

Review:

"Schneider and White promise to deliver insight into the intriguing intricacies of providing excellent services. They deliver sagacity, the intelligent application of knowledge. They do this by being eclectic, disciplined, and thoughtful... Facts about service – what it is, how it happens, what is required to make it better – thankfully dominate this book, supported by good thinking and good methods. No one interested in service quality should miss this book. There is no other book like it." (Rick Guzzo, Ph.D.)

"The coverage is excellent. Among other things, it does a nice job of providing a rationale for why researchers and managers need to understand the perspectives of their customers." (Susan E. Jackson, Ph.D.)

“This book is not a ‘one-minute’ guide for managers in search of alleged quick-fixes of service quality. Instead, it is thirty years of accumulated theory and research that can help serious students understand and analyze this complex phenomenon. The book succeeds in embedding the often overlooked customer within organization studies, using the interdisciplinary approach that scholars preach but seldom practice, and closing with an agenda for future research that others might even find worth pursuing.”   (David E. Bowen)

"At any point in time a limited number of research-based volumes will rise to the top of one's reading list. This reviewer predicts that this volume will be one of them for readers interested in the topic of service quality. Schneider and White combine their academic and professional expertise to present a highly intense, exceedingly well researched literature review on service quality. Clearly beyond the course text market, this volume is a must for one or more of the organizational sciences." (Choice)
