X Topic Abstract

•Business Analysts can prioritise the correct areas of focus, saving time setting targets for parts of the customer journey that have a real impact.

•Thus great CX is always linked to strong collaboration across silos, may this be departments and/or business processes.

•Business leaders of such a CX transformation journey, will find it hard to secure sufficient resources for needed investments if they don’t have evidence that their efforts will generate business value

•Making a successful business requires using customer research and operational data to link customer satisfaction with financial outcomes, such as customer churn and new revenue.

•This analysis will provide the foundation to know what each point of satisfaction is worth to the business.

•But building an effective customer experience capability isn’t just about applying some analysis to existing data. It requires a transformation of the business: its processes, technology, employee mind-set and behavior.

•When done well, it creates value, reduces costs, and improves both customer and employee satisfaction as well as improved business processes.
