Is Your Professional Services in Alignment with Your Experience Management? Part I
Eglobalis
September 14, 2020
Professional Services (PS), consulting, customer sucess and any ‘’business to business’’ interaction – in the enterprise technology industry and other sectors – should be strictly aligned with your experience management approach as part of your company culture. You’ve probably already heard 1000 times that we in customer experience (CX) call these moments of truth “touch points” with our customers. During those interactions, you have the opportunity to demonstrate not just the best of your organization’s professionalism, but also your own. At the end of the day, experiences are created between individuals independently of being digital or physical.

Stop focusing on NPS and concentrate on employee/customer criticism
MyCustomer
September 10, 2020
While NPS remains popular as "the one number you need to grow", customer and employee criticism are your real leverage tool for growth.

Although there is often a negative perception when it comes to receiving criticism, the truth is quite different. It can be a very positive gift to your organisation and can serve as a key tool for listening to your employees, partners and customers – regardless of which sector you’re in, or the type of product or service (digital or physical experience) you offer. Criticism is beneficial … if you use it to improve and grow.

Is Your Diversity and Inclusiveness Real, or Imagined?

August 02, 2020
Many organizations and individuals in the US have expressed profound changes of heart in recent weeks. They claim to have “opened their eyes” after watching the absurd killing of George Floyd.

Simplify employee and customer experiences to adapt and grow
Eglobalis
August 02, 2020
Customer experience has gained new significance now. I’m not here to provide any predictions, but rather I want to focus on practical experiences. Simplifying processes is critical because it can save costs and enhance experience outcomes, enabling necessary, practical adaptations. In turn, this ability to adapt can reignite real innovation, collaboration and product and service quality. I outline a plan that you can execute during the new normal of the pandemic to enhance process design, revise complexities and work toward uncomplicated procedures, ultimately leading to improved customer outcomes.

The 6 CX Fundamentals of Organizational and Human Adaptiveness
Eglobalis
July 30, 2020
When the pandemic started, many companies struggled, from procurement, retails to high technology among several sectors. Almost overnight their employees and customer interactions were made obsolete, and everyone scrambled to adapt — both tech and non-tech sectors.

In the months since then, we have seen some companies change very quickly and effectively, while others are taking more time to develop new, streamlined experiences for their workflows and customer interactions. In supermarkets and grocery stores especially, we see a wide discrepancy between businesses, some of which have designed experiences that are safe, simplified, efficient, and even convenient to consumers in some unexpected ways. Others appear more reluctant or slow to respond to the urgent needs of their employees and customers.

What is it that enables some businesses to respond more effectively than others? They are more prepared, with leadership and employees accustomed to continuous change.

Like humans after a certain age, at some point organizations need to work to maintain fast-paced adaptiveness. That is not always easy, especially in our hyper-fast, always-evolving society. The key is to build a human-centered culture that focuses on relationships with customers and employees. In return, those relationships increase in effectiveness and value, and they grow.

Here are a few principles that help innovative companies train continuously, so when the world turns upside down, they still land on their feet. Hoping we have no next time after this pandemic.

Retail Digital Experience Can Still Satisfy Europeans during COVID-19
Eglobalis
July 14, 2020
Of all industries, Consumer-Packaged Goods (CPG) stands at an opportune turning point in mid-2020. Some retailers are hurting; others have never seen anything close to this level of growth. In the following article, we will analyze the business environment using recent surveys of European consumers and deliver practical advice to help retailers respond to current issues to gain trust, satisfy emerging demands, and grow.

As my usual readers know, Customer Experience (CX) runs deeper than service. But in this case, there is a hidden but critical element to the perception of a retail brand: the products that are delivered to your home, or organization. Procurement and supply chain (engine) are a major barometer for overall brand health and experience perception. Would you feel more protected if you knew how suppliers have adapted to the pandemic? Your customers would too.

6 Ways to Boost Customer Experience Design Adoption & Growth
Eglobalis
June 28, 2020
Today, customers and employees are searching beyond the buzz word of “Customer Experience”, and “Employee Experience”; they are checking your governance complexities, procurement policies, purpose experience, what your company and you as a leader stand for. They watch your culture and leadership, your ability to change, adapt and evolve — from the largest structural change down to the smallest detail.

But given the massive number of factors here, what is the largest weight on the scale? Personal interactions with your organization. Your value is measured by engagement, the ability to develop meaningful relationships that helps you grow in value for all user groups — from customers and employees to partners and shareholders. If you can do that “small” thing then Annual Recurring Revenue (ARR), growth and new customers will come as a positive reward for a job well done.

Deep Leadership: Act Boldly to Protect Customers, Employees and Partners
Eglobalis
June 16, 2020
Of all the changes we’ve seen over the last four or five months of this slow-motion nightmare, at least one thing has become clear. We all need security and empathy. The leaders who have shown they can listen to their communities and respond with transparency have made us feel secure and heard. So, use this crisis to change for the better! Your human-abilities are crucial for deep leadership through these times.

We are seeing a plenty of change now, as many European countries and some parts of MEA, North America, LATAM, and APAC cannot hide from Digital Transformation. It’s now a means of survival. Everyone is learning about ongoing adaptability to simplify customer and employee experience.

Medtronic Puts Humans FIRST in Heroic COVID-19 Response
Eglobalis
April 08, 2020
Some are supporting with resources; others are developing solutions; still others are adapting to our most urgent needs, changing and adjusting supply chain, logistics, R&D and operations, in order to produce more masks, gloves, ventilators and other key components and products. They all deserve our appreciation and praise.

However one company is actually going above and beyond any expectation: Medtronic, the world’s number one medical device company and already a powerhouse of top human innovation. In this perilous time Medtronic is giving away their ventilator IP so that any manufacturer with the capability can now produce some of the best ventilators on the planet and help prevent more COVID-19 deaths.

So be prepared! It happens to all brands -- some more than others, yes. But all brands have the capacity to encounter a crisis of quality or experience at some point.. even yours.

A Potential New “Q” Metric for Your Customer Experience and Design
LinkedIn
November 20, 2017
If we had a metric like that, and decision-makers were judged on it, it would strengthen the culture you need for quality services, products and the overall CX. Less people would cut corners on cost and other factors. Because their incentives would be connected to product quality, they would prioritize quality and design over cost measures. Quality is one of the main pillars of customer experience, loyalty, satisfaction, retention and revenue generation

6 Ways to Boost Customer Experience Design Adoption & Growth

6 Ways to Design Simplify CX, Technology, Boost Adoption, and Generate Growth!

Today, customers and employees are searching beyond the buzz word of “Customer Experience”, and “Employee Experience”; they are checking your governance complexities, procurement policies, purpose experience, what your company and you as a leader stand for. They watch your culture and leadership, your ability to change, adapt and evolve — from the largest structural change down to the smallest detail.

But given the massive number of factors here, what is the largest weight on the scale? Personal interactions with your organization. Your value is measured by engagement, the ability to develop meaningful relationships that helps you grow in value for all user groups — from customers and employees to partners and shareholders. If you can do that “small” thing then Annual Recurring Revenue (ARR), growth and new customers will come as a positive reward for a job well done.

It is unfortunately not easy. Products and services are becoming increasingly similar, increasingly difficult to distinguish based on overall value, technology, onboarding programs, trainings. Even innovative design has a shorter shelf-life as more companies gain adaptive capabilities — some with their own business model (personality) but others that are copycats, decidedly turned into followers rather than leaders.

As we move forward into an increasingly competitive technology market, how can we continue to differentiate?
The Big Idea: Remove complexities to develop meaningful relationships with customers

In a recent article, McKinsey wrote about what I have evangelized for many years, simplification and simplicity of customer, employee and partner’s experience as a competitive differentiator. (Read my article on simplification and simplicity here.) Their rightful opinion is based on a very clear trend over the last ten or twenty years, as companies like Amazon, Google, Spotify, Ikea, Microsoft, Aldi and Lidl have outperformed competitors — by an average of 679% across major indexes such as S&P (+207%), Dow

What makes companies and individuals want to acquire and adopt these solutions over competitors’? Simple and simplified experiences! Simplified experiences create engagement while clarifying value. This is true internally as much as externally. Thus:
