Companies delivering services must broaden their examination of productivity from the conventional company-oriented perspective to a dual company-customer perspective. This broadened approach can help reconcile conflicts – the leverage synergies – between improving service quality and boosting service productivity. This article proposed a conceptual framework for understanding the inter-linkages among service quality and the various components of the company-customer perspective of productivity, and discusses the implications of the framework for service executives and researchers.
