What People are Saying About This

Peter Lorange

This book represents a major contribution to our understanding of professional service firms. Dr. Løwendahl's in-depth research...gives us a comprehensive description of professional service firms and why they cannot be managed like other types of firms such as manufacturing...I congratulate her on her thorough and instructive achievement - I would recommend it to professors and service professionals alike. (Dr. Peter Lorange, Professor & President, IMD.)
