    The correct answer is 95% System 5% Individual. This suggests that the primary factor driving performance is the system in place, such as the processes, procedures, and resources available. While individual effort does play a role, it is a smaller factor compared to the overall system. This implies that having an effective and efficient system is crucial for achieving high performance.

  • 4. 

    It's better to be efficient than effective.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Efficiency refers to doing things in the most optimal and productive way, while effectiveness refers to achieving the desired outcome or goal. In this context, the statement suggests that it is more important to prioritize doing things in an optimal and productive manner rather than focusing on achieving the desired outcome. However, this contradicts the general understanding that effectiveness is more important than efficiency, as achieving the desired outcome should be the ultimate goal. Therefore, the correct answer is False.

This means that the customer had certain expectations that were not met or addressed adequately, leading them to reach out again to address their concerns or dissatisfaction. It indicates a failure in managing customer expectations and requires further attention to resolve any issues or address any unmet needs.

      To lull CSRs into a false sense of security and introduce targets through the back door

    Correct Answer
    B. To prevent CSRs being encouraged into bad behaviours
    Explanation
    Tesco Bank does not impose targets on their CSRs to prevent them from being encouraged into engaging in bad behaviors.

  • 10. 

    Does low average handling time always equals effectivness?

    • A.

      Yes

    • B.

      No

    Correct Answer
    B. No

    The answer is "No" because low average handling time does not always equal effectiveness. While a low average handling time may indicate efficiency in handling tasks, it does not necessarily mean that the tasks are being completed accurately or effectively. Effectiveness is determined by the quality of the outcome and the ability to meet the desired goals or objectives, rather than just the speed at which tasks are completed.
