Winning In The Age Of The Customer
Embrace Four Imperatives To Transform Your Company For Customer Obsession
April 6, 2015
Why Read This Report
The age of the customer is here. To prove this, we analyzed recent economic and survey data and reviewed the practices of over a dozen companies that have made customer-focused transformations. We found that customers are now more mobile, consume more reviews, and buy more online than ever before. Companies must respond by becoming customer-obsessed and adopting four mutually reinforcing market imperatives: 1) Get a quick start by embracing the mobile mind shift, 2) attain maximum customer intelligence by turning big data into business insights, 3) seek a broad impact by transforming their customer experience, and 4) become more effective by accelerating their digital business. This transformation happens locally, from the bottom up, and globally, with the backing of the CEO, CIO, and CMO. (Note: This report is a successor to the report "Competitive Strategy In The Age Of The Customer" published on October 10, 2013.)
