Great Customer Experiences an Upgrade to Executive and Management Mindsets

Great Customer Experiences an Upgrade to Executive and Management Mindsets

It’s a new year and not necessarily another step forward. This isn’t the first time I’ve used this profound picture by Banksy as inspired by Meek. It always inspires me to spread my wings as a change agent. In my research, I find time and time again that digital transformation and corporate innovation is spurred by customer experience. The reality is that customers, as a result of their relationship with technology and the resulting digital transformation of their personal and professional…

Defying Demographics: Generation-C, Today’s Hyperconnected Consumer ‘Generation’

Defying Demographics: Generation-C, Today’s Hyperconnected Consumer ‘Generation’

Not that long ago, I spent time with Kevin Delaney and the digital transformation team at Cisco’s Connected Futures to explore the evolving consumer landscape. My research and ongoing work with Google continues to show how and why people are changing and how businesses must transform through digital and also human approaches. Technology isn’t the answer, it’s a means to solve problems and create opportunities tied to how people are changing. As part of a deeper conversation and project with…

Is technology creating a narcissistic society?

Is technology creating a narcissistic society?

Part 2 in a media tour series for my 2016 keynote at Digital Business World Congress (DES) in Madrid, Spain. This interview is with Expansión, “La tecnología está creando una sociedad narcisista.” Technology is creating a narcissistic society We all talk a lot about change, but how can we change ourselves? This question refers to a famous quote by Russian novelist Leo Tolstoy, “We all talk of change but we don’t talk of changing ourselves.” To change ourselves requires us to first…

Business as Usual is Still Business as Usual: An interview about the real state of digital transformation

Business as Usual is Still Business as Usual: An interview about the real state of digital transformation

Diginomica’s Jon Reed is someone I greatly respect. He’s one of the most discerning and shrewd voices on business modernization out there. I recently had the opportunity to speak with him about the state of digital transformation and the importance of change agents in the evolving enterprise. Every time I have the chance to speak with him, I come away more enlightened and determined. I wanted to share our conversation with you here: Digital transformation may be overhyped, but so…

The Purpose of Brand and CX in the Era of Human Experience

The Purpose of Brand and CX in the Era of Human Experience

It’s time to design experiences you want people to have, remember and share. Customer experience is the new marketing and customer experiences (what they have, feel and share) become the new “BX” (brand experience). More importantly, CX becomes a way of doing business that permeates and reshapes every facet of how and why companies operate. It’s about purpose, vision and meaningful engagement…not corporate mission and vision statements, taglines and creative campaigns. Image courtesy of RantandRave. About Brian Brian Solis is…

The Future of Experience Design

The Future of Experience Design

It’s amazing to me how many companies still don’t “see” the customer when it comes to customer experience. While everyone talks about Customer Experience (CX) as the new black, most companies miss the real opportunity to be customer-centric. They don’t actually think about experiences from the perspective of the people they want to reach. Customers are evolving. Business processes and mindsets are not keeping up. As a result, they’re limited in the ability to design experiences that matter to an…

Customer Experience is Defined by the Experience Customer’s Have, Remember and Share

Customer Experience is Defined by the Experience Customer’s Have, Remember and Share

The funny thing about customer experience is that, for all of its good intentions, it is a bit ironic. Many businesses talk about the importance of customer experience (CX). At the same time, many are prioritizing investments in new technologies and touchpoints to improve engagement. But, when asked about their understanding of modern customer behaviors, expectations, preferences and which experiences in their life they love and don’t love…you get crickets. All too often, customer experience doesn’t really start with the…

The Future of Brand, Tech and Business is Experience

The Future of Brand, Tech and Business is Experience

If you’ve never attended the Next Conference in Germany, plan for the next event. It combines elements of SXSW in a festival, city-wide format where people, technology, music and art converge into an experience that’s anything but a conference. I’ve had the privilege of presenting at Next over the years. In 2016, I was invited once again (I think for the third time) and I jumped at the chance. Well, actually, I flew to Hamburg, but you know what I…
