Interaction Bridges for Customer Commitments

For customer experience management (CEM), it’s natural to focus on smoothing interaction difficulties between paying customers and sales and service representatives. Additionally, innumerable interactions for CEM occur inside the company, causing daily challenges for program managers — or any employee — in follow-through for timely and quality delivery of commitments to both internal and external customers.Weak…See More

Accelerate Customer Experience Improvement via Recognition 2.0

2-way conversations are now the norm! Social media, reality TV show voting, and smart phones make high interaction and accessibility (also known as Web 2.0) a way of life. This is a trend that’s here to stay. And business processes that invite interaction at all employee levels are also proving more effective. So I'm wondering . . . Which business process have you adapted to Web 2.0 principles of 2-way conversation?Let's talk about interaction and accessibility of employee recognition, and in…See More

Why Internal Branding is Central to Customer Experience Management

Why is it that only 12% of customers judge specific leading suppliers as extremely customer-centric (CMO Council Customer Affinity study), while 56% of those same suppliers think of themselves as extremely customer-centric? Possibly because of the way we tend to narrowly define customer experience in the first place, and our human nature to view …See More

Improve Customer Experience: Help Me Help You

Faulty inputs lead to imperfect outputs and inconsistent customer experience.Everything that external customers receive is the result of business processes.

Everybody Has a Customer

Is there any job that doesn’t have a customer? If you work directly with paying customers, you obviously impact customer experience.If you don’t work directly with paying customers: (1) Eventually, the job you do ripples to those employees who do work directly with customers — don’t drop the baton! (2) Inside your company, the job you do has internal customers — figure out how to make their experience excellent!What everyone in a company does can be reduced to one of two functions: to serve the…See More

Customer Experience Management Means Doing the Whole Job

Whether you’ve got external or internal customers, they expect you to ‘do the whole job’! Show that you care about your customer … after all, if your customer decides he or she no longer needs you, you may be out of a job. To do the whole job in customer experience management, go beyond lip-service, anticipate customer expectations, carry the ball, and double-check the customer’s perspective.Customer Care Beyond Lip-Service It’s easy enough to talk about …See More

Customer-Focused Culture by Living With Your Customers: A Lesson From Amazon

You never know someone so well as when they live with you! What better way to transform your culture to truly customer-centric ways of thinking and doing, than to invite your customer to attend all your discussions? This has long been a practice at Amazon, since founder Jeff Bezos once started an executive meeting by announcing that an empty chair at the table represented “the customer”. Throughout the meeting, the executives were compelled to include the customer in their thought process, and…See More

Customer Centric Leadership

Customer-centricity is about priorities. The key is to clearly state your priorities to executives, employees and affiliates. Then reinforce these priorities in daily decision-making criteria and rituals such as annual operating plans, operations reviews, staff meeting agendas, recognition and incentives, performance reviews, etc. Johnson & Johnson has an excellent way of communicating their …See More

Customer Experience Strategy is Uncommon

What is customer experience strategy? A set of tactics or a program is often labeled "strategy", but let's not be fooled by semantics. In Strategy: An Executive's Definition, an article by Booz Allen Hamilton, "strategy" is described as a shared definition among executives when they are creating, communicating, and implementing their choices on where to play and how to win, to maximize long-term…See More

Customers First, or Employees First?

Are customers or employees the number one priority of management’s decision-making hierarchy? … Or perhaps investors trump all? These questions may be in the consciousness of most customer experience practitioners. The title of this recently published book Employees First, Customers Second emphasized this stakeholder hierarchy notion. The book chronicles the CEO’s efforts at HCL Technologies to…See More

Customer Experience Intelligence Inspires Innovation

Customer intelligence is a source of insight and inspiration for innovation in marketing and loyalty programs, as well as operational efficiency and effectiveness.What is UN-intelligent is the unhealthy tension caused by different interpretations of "customer intelligence" and "customer experience" that creates a battleground between marketers and voice-of-the-customer managers. To do best by customers, as well as shareholder value and employee morale, intelligent management of customer…See More
