The need for specialised skills in Services Marketing has grown in recognition of the important role of services in advanced economies. This course addresses the essential nature of services and the role of service quality. Employees’ role in service delivery and the emotional load for service workers form an important focus of the course.
Service sector firms face increased competition and more demanding customers. Marketers need to develop a distinct set of competencies to design, manage and evaluate the processes and performances that comprise the service offering.
Upon successful completion, students will have the knowledge and skills to:
- Identify the challenges facing services marketing in traditional commercial marketing, e-marketing and non-commercial environments;
- Consider the difference between marketing physical products and intangible services, including dealing with the extended services marketing mix and the four unique traits of services marketing;
- Recognise the challenges faced in services delivery as outlined in the services gap model; and
- Develop professional business writing skills.
- Typical assessments may include but are not restricted to: in-class exercises, written and oral assignments, quizzes, examinations, group project tasks, oral presentations, and other assessments deemed appropriate to show the attainment of the learning outcomes set for the course. Further details will be made available via the Class Summary. (100) [LO 1,2,3,4]
