I’m a real sucker for great new tips, techniques, tools, shortcuts, “hacks” and other quick ways of getting better results from our processes and customer experiences.
the truth is that the big wins don’t come from tips or tricks.
come from getting the
fundamentals right. Again and again.
like really understanding your customers (internal and external) so your
products and services are what they need (not just what you think they want).
Fundamentals like having understanding the successful customer outcomes before you ever meet or work with them, so your processes and experiences build credibility and trust quickly.
Fundamentals like follow-up and nurturing your relationships so they are top of the priorities when your customers need to change things.
Fundamentals like being able to “meet” face to face, on the phone, or via a webinar or web page (and by “meet”, I mean help a customer get the best from their experiences and processes, understand their problems, the potential solutions, and decide how to change things to meet ever-changing needs).
Master the fundamentals and the little tips and tricks will improve your results even further.
the fundamentals wrong and all the tips, tricks or clever techniques in the
world won’t hurt.

High Performance Organizations on the other hand know that engineering the CI’s, designing them Outside-In and keeping them owned and controlled determines every aspect of the Customer Experience.
So let’s take a journey together and start with the basics. If we look at healthcare and hospitals especially we all know the smallest things make the biggest difference. Hygiene for instance.
So what are the smallest things in your business that make that massive difference?
