Mad Management: Service and systems in the private and public sectors – and sales skill

My wife and I are the owners of a top of the range, magnificently engineered BMW 535i that is as responsive as a racehorse and perfectly equipped to meet all our needs. Now I am no petrol head, far from it. I normally never give cars a second look, having owned fewer than a dozen in over 50 years of driving. I never gave my Beamer a second look either, all the time it had been parked just down the road in front of a neighbour’s house. (It was 10 years old when I bought it).
