THE X Factor of Customer Centricity

Over the past decades, focus on “experience” has grown dramatically. When considering products and services, emotions increasingly are the leading factor. Organizations have come to realize that, in an age where everything is available to everyone, customer centricity is key and experience has become the X factor. Focusing on Customer Experience (CX) is essential to acquire and retain customers. But the X factor is not only about the customer. An equal focus on Employee Experience (EX) will distinguish great companies from average ones. A drastic cultural change will be required and leadership and organizational structure need a thorough make-over. Every customer-centric company will need to make the journey from CX to EX and back.

Managers The Day After Tomorrow

To keep evolving, you have to abandon traditional linear ways of thinking. You have to let the world inspire you. You must look beyond ‘just’ the technology. You must zoom in on the needs of your customers and put them first. Above all, you have to focus on the possibilities out there and keep experimenting.

How to get ready for an AI future?

We are no longer able to imagine a world without the Internet, we will not be able to imagine a world without Artificial Intelligence in just a few years from now. In order to prepare ourselves for this future, it is crucial to gain some understanding on the topic of AI. But most importantly, Nancy will convey what Artificial Intelligence can do and how it can contribute to improving your business, mainly through acquiring deeper customer knowledge and delivering better, more proactive and personalized customer experiences.

Healthcare in The Day After Tomorrow – Patient Centricity is THE Leading Game

Healthcare will be driven much more by consumers than physicians as the patient is taking control of his own health and his own treatment. In this hyperconnected world, any healthcare company needs to become agile and adopt a fluid strategy. Patient centricity will be THE leading game. A new mindset is key to survive, healthcare companies will need to rethink their strategy, but also adopt value-driven behaviour embedded in a new type of culture and accompanied by a new type of management structure.
