Human-Centered CX: Uniting Stakeholders Across the Enterprise to Deliver a Relevant and Holistic Customer Experience

Customer experience is said to be a top business priority for most companies around the world. Many experts agree that investing in CX establishes a competitive advantage against companies that prioritize the bottom line. While customer experience is a noble and important catalyst for business transformation, becoming truly customer-centric requires an introspective approach. This takes stepping back to define what customer experience really means from the customer perspective, what they truly value and also what’s primed, broken or missing to…

Does your brand have an experience style guide?

Does your brand have an experience style guide?

X has opened the doors to new countries and experiences and for that, I am truly grateful. Recently, I had the opportunity to visit Singapore and also Hong Kong. I already want to go back. While in Hong Kong, I meet with Soon Chen Kang 江欣珍 at Campaign Magazine to discuss X, the state and future of brand and the importance of experience design in all aspects of customer/employee engagement. I wanted to share the conversation with you here… Does your brand…

Human-centered CX: Uniting stakeholders across the enterprise

Customer experience is said to be a top business priority for most companies around the world. Many experts agree that investing in CX establishes a competitive advantage against companies that choose to solely prioritise the bottom line.

Building a Brand Through Experience Design

  Recently, I had the good fortune of conducting a joint interview with Don Schuerman, chief technology officer and vice president of product marketing at Pegasystems on the topic of customer experience. Don brought an intriguing perspective to the table from more than 20 years on the technology side, working directly with companies to operationalize digital initiatives. You can listen to the interview here, but I also wanted to share some highlights from the conversation: The market is changing, whether we like it or not: Customer expectations…

Building Dragons: Digital Transformation in the Experience Economy

Guest post by Daniel Newman (@DanielNewmanUV), author of Building Dragons: Digital Transformation in the Experience Economy with Olivier Blanchard (@BrandBuilder) We set out to write a book about technology…but after 10 chapters and still very little technology discussion, we realized that we were in the process of writing a book that was about so much more. At the core, we wound up writing a book about change. More specifically, a book about how companies can align their strategy, mindset, human capital…

An Intern’s Review of WTF: What’s the Future of Business

An Intern’s Review of WTF: What’s the Future of Business

One of the little known stories about my previous book, What’s the Future of Business: Changing the way businesses create experiences, is that I wrote and published it after I had started my latest book, X: The Experience when business meets design.  While it stands on its own, WTF is technically a companion book to X and can be read as a part 2 of sorts. One of the lesser known facts about WTF, is that it wasn’t even on my docket….

How Digital Darwinism Changed Customer Experience

How Digital Darwinism Changed Customer Experience

What is experience? What is customer experience? Believe it or not, trying to answer these questions is where the future of digital transformation and experience design intersect.  While I was in London at an event focused on innovation in customer experience, I filmed a short video for Oracle to explore the topic. A 20 minute conversation was edited down to a a one minute burst. Knowing that this would happen, I spoke in Twitter-like responses. I hope it helps you in…

Photo Credit: Brian Fanzo I don’t normally share things like this, but…I’ve had a heck of a week. On Monday, I released what I would consider my most significant research to date on the subject of digital transformation, “The Race Against Digital Darwinism: Six Stages of Digital Transformation.” I also spent traveled to San Diego (SMMW), Las Vegas (SAS) and Huntington Beach (WCPRSA). Not the most extreme mileage in comparison to previous trips, but each event, was in its own way, unforgettable….

The Importance of Designing Customer Experiences

The Importance of Designing Customer Experiences

SXSW is one of my favorite events of the year for many reasons. It’s an experience where serendipity becomes the new gravity and almost everyone you meet has incredible stories to share. Upon arrival in Austin, I drove straight from the airport to the Sysomos lounge to see my dear friend Amber Naslund and her team. She was kind enough to host my very first booksigning of X the evening before SXSW was set to kick-off. The place was packed! What…
