Submitted via the QP reader survey A: The old adage "to err is human; to forgive, divine" works well in social interactions, but in the industrial world, human errors can be costly and occasionally result in fatalities. The same attentiveness is necessary for transactional processes in banking and finance; otherwise, organizations may go bankrupt due to human errors.
This is a fairly wide spread and common problem showing a lack of understanding about basic customer service cause and effect. How reasonable would it be to hold a shipping dock worker responsible for the quality of the goods in the boxes he or she is shipping?
Not only would that be unfair, it would be bad management. A good manager would argue, quite rightly, that the manufacturing process should be traced back to find the ultimate source of the defects. So how reasonable is it to hold the frontline server responsible for the quality of the products or services he or she is delivering?
Sometimes poor service is their fault. Some servers are rude, sloppy, or uncaring. But most often the person on the front serving line is a symptom carrier, not the source of the problem. While he or she may be contributing to low service delivery, blaming him or her is also not only unfair but looking for answers in all the wrong places.
Even if poor service did originate with the service deliverer, who hires, trains, rewards, coaches, and measures that person? Like so much about culture, performance, and leadership it really is common sense; if you put a good person into a bad system, the system will win most of the time.
All this lies within the system, processes, structure, or practices of the organization. And all this is a leadership, management, and culture issue. The result is a culture of fixing the blame rather than the problem.
This creates a culture of fear, cover your backside, and finger pointing. Browse a selection of our articles and posts on Customer Service.
