Product description

Review

'Sense and Respond is a key approach that overlays the supply of Managed Services. It inevitably increases value for our customers beyond that of traditional service delivery.' - Tsuneo Kato, Group VP of Global Services, Service Business Group, Fujitsu Limited

'Sense and Respond is a radical departure for the entire service sector, a dramatic shift in thinking that could revolutionise services in the same way as Six-Sigma and TQM transformed the world of production. Congratulations for this brilliant contribution - we will all benefit immeasurably.' - Roger Camrass , Director, Business Transformation Group, Fujitsu

'...this pioneering approach demonstrates just what can be achieved from being truly customer-focused. The real significance of the authors' work is that it starts by understanding what the customer is trying to achieve...customer purpose...rather than from customer satisfaction or even customer delight.' - Professor Daniel T. Jones, Chairman, Lean Enterprise Academy

'In reality, this is a culture change on a massive scale in which learning is seen as central to business success. This approach transforms thinking behind the delivery of service, knowledge and innovation in organisations.' - Dr Joel Cutcher-Gershenfeld, Senior Research Scientist, MIT Sloan School of Management
