Event Details

Are your Service Operations delivering effectively?

In the west, Service industries account for a majority of GDP.  Service Processes are different from manufacturing:

  • They have more contact points with customers and stakeholders
  • Services cannot be stored for later use
  • They deliver both intangible and tangible value.
  • Although processes can be standardised each customer is unique.

Kinetik Solutions Excellence in Service Operations course, offers the opportunity to deliver more to the customer with your existing resources. The benefits are more than just cost saving but an increase in reputation and brand value.

The course objectives are

  • Understand the Customer Experience levers in Service. We will study two models for services that are aligned with customer needs.
    • ABC-M Model [Autonomy, Belonging, Competence, Meaning]
    • Kano Model [Delight, Functional, Basic, Indifferent]

We run a Service Operations Simulation that brings out ‘learning by doing’. This includes the concepts of:

  • Understanding Takt Time (Process Drumbeat)
  • Improving Cycle Time and Capacity Levelling
  • Creating Error Proof Processes
  • Improving Flow by removing wasteful activities
  • Path to Digitalising the Services
  • Setting up Continuous Improvement in Service Operations
  • Creating a culture of Quick Wins
  • Team-working using the RACI Model

Use the Service Operations concepts to examine your own process issues and opportunities in digital or traditional services. A foundation certificate will be issued on completion of the course
