Solving for X: The Rise of Experience Innovation

Solving for X: The Rise of Experience Innovation

I’ve known Judith Aquino for several years now. Her work in customer experience is extensive and her connections in the space are deep. Shortly after the release of X: The Experience When Business Meets Design, I caught up with Judith to talk about the rise of experience innovation.

The Future of Customer Engagement Starts with an Upgrade in Human Perspective

        Have you ever met someone with whom you instantly connect? Someone so welcoming yet wise and humble but so special that you become instantly inseparable…that they make you better and maybe you help them become better too?

Bullying, Hate, Conspiracies, Fake News, Negatively Impacts User Experiences and Advertising Value

“Social media has made too many of us comfortable with disrespecting people and not getting punched in the mouth for it.” – Ice T In real life… Free speech is not free from consequence. Spreading misinformation whether you aim to sow discord or because you actually believe it, is not free from consequence. Exchanging conflict for views, popularity and financial gain is not free from consequence. Inflicting emotional, psychological or emotional pain and aguish on another human being for any…

Designing the Future of Customer Experience

Designing the Future of Customer Experience

My last book, X: The Experience When Business Meets Design, explored the art and science of experience design. Looking beyond the disparate, but important disciplines of customer experience, brand experience, user experience, service experience, I sought to spark a creative coalescence between them…hence, “X.” It’s the letter, and more importantly, the experience, they share.

A Prelude to Innovation: Figure Out How The World is Changing and How To Be More Relevant as It Evolves

There are many places in this world I hope to one day experience. On that list was Sofia, Bulgaria. I use the past tense as I’m so happy to report that I had the opportunity to visit this beautiful city (and country) for the DigitalK conference. What a great event! I presented on topic that I refer to as “A Prelude to Innovation.” It’s meant to spotlight the important actions and events serving as the introduction to innovation itself. Shortly…

Customer journeys start with smartphones, but brands still don’t get mobile

Customer journeys start with smartphones, but brands still don’t get mobile

Customers are not going to wait for brands to get the mobile journey right…they’ll move on and find someone else who gets them. Customers are increasingly and overwhelmingly mobile-first. For the most part, many brands are still learning how to optimize traditional e-commerce experiences let alone mobile sites and apps. The Amazons of the world don’t make it any easier to keep up. Yet every day, customers are reaching for their smartphones to learn about what to buy, what to…

We keep talking about Millennials and Centennials, let’s just talk about human beings first and go from there

We keep talking about Millennials and Centennials, let’s just talk about human beings first and go from there

It’s my job to study how people, you and me, are changing as a result of our relationship with technology. It’s also my job to then reverse-engineer those insights into opportunities for innovation. There are immediate areas of where human-centered design can solve problems you are facing right now. There are many more areas where human-centered innovation and iteration can help you create competitive and critical opportunities for the future. Everything from customer experience (CX) and employee experience (EX) to…

Customer Experience, Where It is Now, and Where It Will Go Next

Customer Experience, Where It is Now, and Where It Will Go Next

Leo Bertelli was gracious enough to invite me for an interview on the state and future of CX.  The conversation was so engrossing that I wanted to share it with you here. I hope it helps you! What do you think have been the most significant advances in CX in previous years? You can’t talk about customer experience if you don’t appreciate what the word experience means – and as the author of a book on experience design, I struggled…
