We are a group of thought leaders who are experts in the practical application of the disciplines that are now required to help companies build a truly customer-centric business.
Our experience has taught us the following:
It’s not easy. “Change is hard” is a well-worn cliché that nonetheless happens to be true. Making the “pivot” to become customer-centric is requires a well thought-through customer strategy and a well-planned change programme.
Choose wisely. Do you focus on strategy, training, process, customer journeys, performance indicators, functional structure, organisational structure, creating a CX function, process automation or digital strategies? Picking the right start point and deciding where to invest to get bottom-line benefit will be key.
The plan that fits your company’s needs will be as unique to you as the customers you serve. Many people talk about a 12-step process or a 6-pillar plan. The plan that works is not "one-size fits all". It is specific to your organisation and its priorities.
