At any company, senior leaders are tasked with creating business value, and the key for any CX leader is to create value by helping the organization develop a compelling customer value proposition that truly delivers.
Thoroughly understanding the needs and preferences of customers, as well as their behavior along the customer journey, is essential to achieving successful business growth.
A customer journey map (CJM) reveals gaps in customer experiences and explores innovative solutions that customers value. It helps businesses metaphorically “walk in their customers’ shoes” and experience the brand from the customer’s point of view. It gives everyone in the business a complete picture of how customers experience the organization’s products and services.
The benefit of doing this is the opportunity to examine every touchpoint to find ways to improve or to eliminate (or mitigate) friction and problems. It’s all about understanding customers’ feelings, motivations, wants and needs. In other words, it’s about the “customer truth.” By understanding customers at this level, you create a better experience throughout their journey and can train and support employees to better empathize and help them when needed.Click here to read the rest of the article on Forbes
