Measuring the Efficiency of Service Delivery Processes: With Application to Retail Banking
AbstractThis paper presents a methodology that determines the role of design in calculating the efficiency of service delivery processes. The efficiency of these processes is determined by using a variation of frontier estimation (DEA-like) techniques. The methodology is then applied to a particular service delivery process in retail banking. The methodology allows one to address the question of how much inefficiency in a business process is due to the wrong process design, and how much is due to the right design, poorly executed.
