In a tight market, your most powerful growth engine and your best protection from competitive inroads is this: put every thing you can into cultivating true customer loyalty. Loyal customers are less sensitive to price competition, more forgiving of small glitches and ultimately, become “walking billboards” who will happily promote your brand. In Exceptional Service, Exceptional Profit, insiders Leonardo Inghilleri and Micah Solomon reveal the secrets of providing online and offline customer service so superior it nearly guarantees loyalty. Their anticipatory customer service approach was first developed at The Ritz-Carlton as well as at Solomon’s company Oasis and has since proven itself in countless companies around the globe from luxury giant BVLGARI to value-sensitive auto parts leader Carquest and everywhere in between. Now, readers can take the techniques that minted money for these brands and apply them directly to their own businesses. As Ken Blanchard writes, “Leonardo and Micah’s philo sophies, rules and winning examples of service excellence will make you want to implement their suggestions immediately in your own organization.”
Filled with detailed, behind-the-scenes examples, the book unlocks a new level of customer relationship that leaves your competitors in the dust, your customers coming back day after day and your bottom line looking better than it ever has before.

An all-in-one guide to new trends and best practices in project management: Program Management Office

Program Management Office (PMO) is the secret weapon employed by Fortune 500 companies to get complex, simultaneous projects completed on time and on budget. Pioneered in the IT industry, PMO eliminates the haphazard nature of running multiple projects by creating a central office responsible for allocating limited resources, setting consistent measures, and monitoring progress. But PMO’s powerful tools and techniques can be used in any industry—construction to finance, health care to education—to enhance efficiency and performance.

The Program Management Office Advantage is the first practical, down-to-earth guide to PMO that anyone—project managers, IT professionals, line managers, and company executives—can quickly understand and implement. This complete, how-to guide covers the entire spectrum of issues and duties, from building a financial case for establishing a PMO to forging consensus about its impact on your organization… from implementing a fail-proof plan to improve project success rates to establishing standard practices that reduce the need to “reinvent the wheel”…from staffing the PMO with highly qualified people to leading it with the skills and knowledge that guarantee success.

It’s all here, in one essential resource to setting up and managing a state-of-the-art PMO that ensures all of your organization’s projects are running in the most efficient and effective manner possible.
