International Business School of Service Management

Service Management Compact

"After one week intense training by different coaches and doing lots of workshops exercises how to transfer the theory directly in to my business, I would say, I like the idea of this course. This is not something that I could have learned at University. It is directly to my function “Service Management” and what I like about the participants is that they are very energetic and passionate about their jobs."
Damian Francabandiera, Corporate Service Manager Elisa and Molecular, DiaSorin Italy

The management skills and implementation tool required for success in the modern service business are imparted in a systematic and compact way, supported by real-life case studies. This strongly facilitates the transfer into participant’s own practice.

Kim TaeYun, Service Manager Endress+Hauser South Korea

We can carry out any of our open seminars, trainings or certificated courses for you in-house.

Specific programs for managers and specialists, adapted to the specific markets, customers and internal structures of their organizations, are a unique offering of the ISS Business School. Nationally and internationally, more than 2.500 participants from different companies have enrolled in these programs to strengthen their customer competence and to acquire professional service management know-how in order to prepare their service organizations for the future. Creating Service Business Competence at Endress + Hauser is just one example…

Several aspects have to be considered when designing a successful program

  • Specific issues relating to the particular situation of the organization concerned and
  • General issues which have to be considered when designing successful inhouse programs.

What is the starting point? Why is there a need for transformation/change? Is it changing markets? Is it strategies which require a re-orientation of the business or is it changing technologies which make new approaches and procedures necessary?

Just think of recent disruptive changes like, e.g., internet telephony, Car2Go by card, shoes ordered by mail, remote diagnosis in industrial organizations and accelerated processes… all these are service issues, by the way, which require new management approaches and customer competences. Nothing is as constant as change! This saying is now more "true" than ever.
