Tip from Faktor K:
To understand the factors influencing the customer experience, they must be made measurable. The Net Promoter Score (NPS), for example, indicates whether customers would recommend the company to others. Feedback forms and reviews also provide information about customer satisfaction.
Involve your customers and employees in the process. Customer opinions are valuable and help to discard the internal view. The more employees are involved, the greater the willingness to change.
