Internal Measures Not Connected with the Customer or Competition Why does the customer care?
Service Level/ASA Is the door open when promised? How much of my time are you willing to take? Should I begin to look for an alternative?
Abandon/Answer Rate Im too busy right now I dont have tolerance for wasting time I have alternatives
Too Much Time Spent Analyzing the Score More Time On the Game Film and Moving Players
Svc Level ASA Abandon Adherence What is Planned? What do I Have? What is Down the Road? …Adjust Based on Future NOT Past
Measures Put In Place Because Everyone Else Does It Understand That Size Makes Call Centers Different

Measures With Holes That Lead to Excuses Wishful Thinking and Denial …Beyond the 4 Walls
GATEWAY - I Built This Company, I Can Save It – Fortune Magazine Many of these changes hurt more than just morale. They hurt business. For example, one policy put a time limit on customer-service calls; reps who spent more than 13 minutes talking to a customer didn't get their monthly bonuses. As a result, workers began doing just about anything to get customers off the phone: pretending the line wasn't working, hanging up, or often -- at great expense -- sending them new parts or computers. Not surprisingly, Gateway's customer satisfaction rates, once the best in the industry, fell below average. What's more, many customers stopped recommending Gateway to their friends and families; Gateway's referral business -- once 50% of total sales -- fell to about 30%
Comparing Apples to Watermelons and the resulting AVERAGE Give leaders the tools to COACH the solution
