Service business authority Leonard Berry and Mayo Clinic marketing administrator Kent Seltman had the rare opportunity to study Mayo Clinic's service culture and systems from the inside by conducting personal interviews as well as observing hundreds of clinician-patient interactions. The result is Management Lessons from Mayo Clinic, a book about how the Clinic's business concept produces stellar clinical results, organizational efficiency, and interpersonal service.
