Dimensions of Service Quality

  1. 1. P R E S E N T E D B Y D A Y O A D E W O Y E Dimensions of Service Quality
  2. 2. Background: A Study SERVQUAL was developed in the 1980s by some Amercan scholars: A. Parasuraman, V.A. Zeithaml, and L.L. Berry. It was developed as a tool for measuring service quality by comparing customers perception of the service delivered with their desired expectations. When expectations are not met, the service is deemed unacceptable. When perception is in line with expectation, the service quality is satisfactory. However, the service is rated as exceptional when the perception exceeds expectation. The study observed that customers measure the quality of service received along five areas or dimensions: Responsiveness, Reliability, Assurance, Empathy, Tangibles.
