SERVICE MANAGEMENT

General Information:

In today’s increasingly service-based industry, Service Management has become a popular emphasis for all business majors through the country. Service Management convers the management of service producing industries (in contrast to manufacturing and agricultural industries) by focusing on three key elements:

· service development

· service provisioning

· service management as an operational task

Service management requires operational and production methods that are different from manufacturing management. It is widely accepted that producing and selling goods requires offering a service in order to be competitive.
