This online course helps funeral directors explore today's "service crisis challenge," with a special focus on Baby Boomers and their likes, dislikes, and their frequent questioning of traditional funerals. The author explains the how and why many funeral homes are not providing excellent customer service - and shows how funeral directors can learn to create dynamic customer service experiences that today's consumers want in this "experience economy."
