Handbook of Management Scales/Service standards
Service standards (composite reliability = 0.84)
The authors follow a two-phased approach to develop multi-item scales that measure dimensions of service orientation in the context of business-to-business e-commerce. Service orientation was conceptualized as a third-order construct comprised of five combinative service competency bundles: service climate; market focus; process management; human resource policy; and metrics and standards.
One of these five second-order dimensions, metrics and standards, consists of two first-order dimensions: measurement system and service standards.
