Companies have lofty goals for customer experience. Unfortunately, most customer experience professionals aren't doing even a fraction of the things required to achieve those goals. Customer experience professionals need a plan and a road map to help their organizations adopt the practices that will let them design, implement, and manage customer experience in a disciplined way that delivers the results firms want.

We concluded that firms that actually succeeded at this goal followed the same four-phase path. This is an update of a previously published report, describing the path to customer experience maturity for customer experience professionals and providing examples of organizations that are on it today.
