By turning customer research into a cohesive visual view of a customer’s journey and identifying opportunities for improvements, you'll get a map that shows what customers are feeling, doing and using as they move through your service and the pains and opportunities that arise along the way. Then you can share your customer journey map with stakeholders and those responsible for delivering the service, prioritise the opportunities you’ve identified, and start working on the most critical ones.
Use customer journey maps to give you insights into your customer's journey. Focusing on a specific journey lets you see where customers are getting frustrated and where to focus on creating better user outcomes. A customer journey map is the right tool if you know which Service you want to focus on to improve. And when doing so, try not to assume or guess people's real-life experiences before the exercise, as you end up with a semi-realistic assessment versus the actual customer experience.
Choose a service like DA's, Parking or Tree permits that you want to improve to demonstrate the value of journey mapping.
Ensure you conduct surveys and customer interviews to better understand the pain points and moments of truth.
Map your user's journey in a way that suits your team. Represent the user's journey in swim lanes. Use visuals to communicate points on the journey.
