Best practice companies teach us to be wise in how we solicit, listen, and respond to customer feedback. They demonstrate practical ways we can create the customer-preferred and fiscally-responsible experience for each and every customer contact regardless of channel (phone, email, web, chat). Each decision whether about technology, measurements, service level, employee reward or recognition requires us to shift our perspective from a product centric approach to one of viewing each interaction from the customer’s point of view.Read more >

Today’s customer journey does not start and stop at the known touch points of marketing engagement. From word of mouth on social media to the actual last-mile delivery of the product, customers expect that the brands they trust and invest in will be there every step of the way. Yet marketers admit that they have not been highly effective at mapping the totality of the customer experience. According to a report from the CMO Council, some 41 percent of marketers admit they do not have a comprehensive view of customer experience across all customer touchpoints. This begs the question: Have we not tried to map the journey, or are our systems so disconnected and siloed that we can only map what we ourselves create?
Join the CMO Council as we delve into where and how industry leaders are taking a broad view of the customer experience and journey, as well as how this view and process have impacted the bottom line. How are campaigns managed differently when insights into supply chain are available? Who are the key stakeholders, and how are they aligned to ensure the customer experience is managed from the first conversation through to re-order and advocacy? How are marketing leaders orchestrating this view of the customer journey, and how is that strategy embraced cross-functionally and supported technologically?
This one-hour interactive webcast will explore the customer journey from the mindset of truly customer-centric organizations, including the critical steps and strategies marketers must take in order to turn customer centricity from catchphrase into profit.

The level of choice and options – from pricing plans to the devices themselves – have added layer upon layer of complexity for today’s communications service providers. From new market entries threatening to lure market share away with the promise of unlimited data, robust infrastructure and advanced technologies, CSPs must look at how their total customer experience – from acquisition through to continued and sustained retention – is achieved.
The days of operating under a belief that the product is at the center of marketing efforts has been eliminated. Instead, a mandate for true customer centricity – where data, insights and a deep, real understanding of the customer and that customer’s impact on the business is a requirement.
The CMO Council will be investigating this evolution in the CSP space through a series of webinars designed to dissect unique areas of the overall customer experience. In our first installment, we will look at the shifting requirements of developing more targeted and relevant retention marketing strategies while advancing the customer experience. Some of the key issues our speakers will focus on include:
- Customer-centricity: Institutionalizing this in the corporate culture and DNA
- "Surgical" segmentation – identifying which customers may be hurting the business
- Customer relationship marketing strategies to reduce burn and minimize churn
- How AT&T is profiling customers to determine the most profitable route to engagement
Given the heightened expectations from customers for flawless experiences, and the heightened expectations from management to optimize revenues, marketers are being challenged to enhance the overall customer experience by moving away from the traditional product-centric marketing model. Customer-centricity has become the new mantra for marketers looking to leverage the deep insights and intelligence that can be mined from customer data. The challenge is how to shift from looking at campaigns and instead looking at customer dialogs and engagements.
Focusing on the customer and harnessing analytics to fuel initiatives that retain and acquire customers, C-level marketers are earning a place in the board-level bottom line conversation. In addition, true collaboration between sales, marketing and customer service departments can pave the way for a customer experience that truly caters to the customer.
The third in an ongoing dialog, this webinar will explore how data, analytics, segmentation and strategy can come together to create a superior customer experience that generates advocacy and propels brands. The CMO Council has invited speakers who will share how to make marketing, on all levels, customer-centric. Some of the key issues our speakers will focus on include:
- Best ways to gain a holistic view of the customer
- How to measure customers in terms of lifetime value propositions and thereby measure marketing performance
- Bringing sales, marketing and customer service departments together to most effectively predict churn and produce the best (read: most profitable) customer experience
- Customer relationship marketing strategies to reduce burn and minimize churn

- How business requirements for the Service Desk change as a result of customer-centricity

Over the past decade the Chief Marketing Officer (“CMO”) role has come under intense scrutiny and been hotly debated as to what the metrics, competencies and role should be. It’s a given CMOs must sign up for a revenue number, what’s not clear is if they should own the customers’ experience and how to measure the role. For organizations embracing customer-centricity, defining marketing’s role is critical.
The 20 minute video interview with 10 minute audience Q&A will explore how the CMO role has changed, what CEOs expect from marketing and what marketers need to do meet internal and external expectations.
Accessing, aggregating and transforming data is critical whether for creating regulatory reports, understanding the customer, or managing large data sets for predictive analytics. But Financial institutions face significant challenges when unlocking, aggregating and managing data across the enterprise to achieve these strategic business objectives.
Financial services firms must seamlessly share data across applications and devices to become a “Connected Financial Institution,” but are being held back by organizational, geographic and product information silos. This approach no longer works for financial institutions looking to streamline regulatory reporting, monetize customer analytics, and democratize data-driven decision-making.
Join us as we discuss how organizations can address data management challenges and create competitive advantage by unlocking, aggregating and transforming data across on-premise and cloud applications, integrating both batch and real-time information sources to “connect the dots.”
Get the answers to these questions:
- What are the key challenges compelling firms to undertake data management initiatives?
- How can firms use pre-built tools to simplify connectivity to legacy mainframes, departmental databases and third-party data sources?
- How can integration accelerate data management across regulatory compliance, customer centricity, and big data projects?
Customer centricity is now an essential component of any business’ growth or retention plan, from marketing and loyalty efforts to customer satisfaction and engagement rates. However, adapting business practices across all customer facing departments is easier said than done.Read more >
The single biggest obstacle to having lasting success with Lean is the common misconceptions that abound about “what lean is.” This can be found in blogs, articles in trade publications and in advertisements for technologies and training. Talk of methods, approaches and strategies for “how to use Lean to get results quick” or “what Lean tools and methods you should use for ________” are plentiful. Unfortunately, these don’t help resolve the misconceptions – they help reinforce them.
During this session, we will start a conversation on how you can be successful with Lean by going beyond the traditional approaches and examining how to “think Lean.” We will cover how you, your peers and your organization need to start “thinking differently” and charting a course for how to intelligently and appropriately utilize lean. This webinar will address issues of organizational and personnel development, customer-centricity, cultural barriers to success and some ways you can get started.
