The head of IBM’s Global Services famously said: “The last best experience that anyone has anywhere, becomes the minimum expectation for the experience they want everywhere.”
Never has this been more true and goes a long way to explaining why customer experience has become the priority of many organisations. Customer expectations are higher, and switching suppliers has become easier than ever before in almost all markets. However, prioritising improving the customer experience and making that a reality are two different things.
This course will teach you all you need to know to move from a grand vision to a new customer-centric culture in your organisation. It will give you the tools to create a practical customer experience strategy and apply that in the real world.
While our Creating an outstanding online customer experience course focuses specifically on creating a great experience through digital touchpoints like your website, this course takes the bigger picture asking how you can fundamentally change your organisation’s culture to be more customer-centric.
The course will be practical, interactive, upbeat and hopefully fun. It will allow ample time to discuss the challenges you face and the obstacles you are struggling to overcome.
