This week, I had the chance to read the blueprint for customer obsession (literally) with the help of Marbue Brown. He’s a CX practitioner with years of experience at companies who can more or less take credit for starting the movement toward customer obsession. Amazon, Microsoft, Cisco, JP Morgan Chase… you know, just some mom-and-pop shops.
We discuss how the truly customer-obsessed companies out there go to extremes. They do things in their day-to-day operations that would get most people laughed out of the room. And most importantly, they innovate nonstop, because customer expectations never stop changing, either.
So get ready to hear an insider’s perspective from companies that brought customer-centricity mainstream and learn everything you can. Enjoy!
