First question… QUESTION: Why do so many organizations struggle to become truly customer centric?
ANSWER: They are using an out of date mindset. The thinking is borrowed from the industrial age when optimising production and throughput was the thing. That way of thinking is about production management, efficiency, effectiveness and elimination of waste. Does that feel familiar? Next question…
QUESTION: What is (probably) the biggest hurdle to overcome on the way to becoming Outside-In?
ANSWER: It is getting passed this industrial age mindset and all the things that come with it… our reward structures… our approach to employee engagement… the processes and systems… Alright, one more…
QUESTION: If listening to the customer is so important what is ‘best practice’?
ANSWER: Often times many companies are trying to drive forward by only looking in the rear view mirror. That is listening to subjective perceptual feedback, rather than at every interaction 100% of the time.

Why should Individuals & Organizations adopt the ACXP Program?
Better business results begin with Accredited CX Professionals guiding and leading their organizations.
By establishing a cadre of accredited people organizations are demonstrating their drive towards customer-centricity which delivers immediate results and pleases employees, customers, and stakeholders.
The Accredited Customer Experience Professional (ACXP) is a program underpinned by practical exercises based on the work underway in the enterprise. Individuals and teams are coached and assessed by ‘been there and done it’ CX professionals regarded as top of their profession.
Less on the theory, more on the practice the ACXP program uses ‘now’ case studies (frequently not in the public domain) so attendees can see ‘next practices’ and quickly incorporate them into their individual, team, and organization work.
Underpinned by proven approaches and techniques, such as the CEMMethod™ (launched in 2006 and now in Version 14), the ACXP program is designed for individual advancement, organizational maturity, and ultimately business transformation to become truly customer-centric.
The ACXP is the first step on the ladder leading to a progressive and more advanced understanding and delivery of Customer Experience next practices.
The portfolio of levels includes ACX Master®, ACX Champion® and ACX Mentor®.
