Map Customer Journeys

Do you know your customers enough to create wow experiences? Does every department of your organization know how to turn your customers into evangelists?

When it comes to managing customer experiences, many organizations are reactive and transactional.

1. Managers don’t have specific goals on how to improve customer experience.

There is an expectation of excellent customer service. This is why organizations offer customer service training and conduct customer satisfaction surveys.

Unfortunately, surveys show only lag measures. Service improvements are reactive because they are meant to undo poor customer service.

You can undo poor customer service. You can only anticipate the next one.

  2. Employees don’t work proactively to improve customer experiences.

They don’t know how to wow. Many customer service training programs focus on experience in front of a customer.

Most customer experiences related to organizations are not face-to-face experiences.

3. They don’t measure the impact of customer experiences — and use measures to improve “business” objectives.

It is not necessary to measure everything. Measure what must be improved. Most employees, for example, don’t know the experiences they create for each touchpoint, for each moment of truth.

4. In many organizations, customer service is the accountability of one department.

Employees don’t talk about customer experience improvement in their meetings.

They talk about many things, but seldom it is that customer experience is on the agenda.
