Why talking about customers in government and inside business is a mistake, and we need to do better.

There’s a really simple relationship in customer service.

Investment in service is determined by switching cost.

The harder it is to switch to another service provider, the worse the customer service generally is. 

So service just has to be good enough to prevent “customers” switching governments, or finding a new job.

That’s not very good.
