Conventional thinking is that a CX innovation program is daunting. It is perceived as long, large, expensive, risky and that it may not deliver desired outcomes in terms of revenue or profit performance.
But the questions one must ask are
can we maintain our profits by just doing the things we always have done?
are our competitors innovating using digital strategies?
are they creating new customer journeys?
are they partnering for greater customer value?
will a focus purely on product and/or price performance be enough?
are competitors working on product & price AND customer experience?
