Behavior-based customer service is a sound strategy because behavior is measurable and manageable. The strategy is a process rather than a program that calls for employee involvement and development of internal resources to obtain continuous improvement. Both management and the work force must understand and buy into the process. Key characteristics of successful behavior-based implementation are flexibility, meaningful employee involvement, continuous improvement based on communication, and long-term support.
