The Service Profit Chain is a theory and business concept evolved by a group of researchers from Harvard University in the nineties (among others James L. Heskett and Leonard Schlesinger). The concept was first offered in the book , The Service Profit Chain – How Leading Companies Link Profit and Growth To Loyalty, Satisfaction and Value, published in 1997.
