WHAT IS THE MOST COMMON CUSTOMER EXPERIENCE PROBLEM CX PROFESSIONALS FACE?

SEEING THE WORLD AS IT IS CAN BE A CHALLENGE FOR SO MANY PEOPLE

The other day I was rewatching The Matrix – can you believe that was released in 1999?… but I digress.

One of the most interesting scenes is where Morpheus presents Neo with a choice of the red pill or the blue pill. What was Neo’s response to the offer? 

As described by Morpheus: “You take the blue pill…the story ends, you wake up in your bed and believe whatever you want to believe. You take the red pill…you stay in Wonderland, and I show you how deep the rabbit hole goes.” Neo chooses the red pill and joins the rebellion.

What will your choice be – Red or Blue?

Yes, he chose to see the world as it really is, not as it appeared to be….

That’s a lot like the choice companies face now. Do they carry on living in the blissful ignorance of a collective hallucination from the industrial age, or do they see the world as it really is now.

Maybe I’m geeking out on this a bit…

But when you’re as immersed as I am into Outside-In and Customer Centricity you just start seeing these little lessons everywhere… even in popular films.

We do a lot more about moving beyond the hallucination during the ACX Masters 4 day program.

The Customer Experience definition

What is the definition of Customer Experience?
The definitions of customer experience are many however in 99% of cases incorrect. Why so? Well simply because they are from a company viewpoint, that is ‘Inside-Out’.

A truly customer-centric definition needs to see customer experience through the customer’s actual experience. Accordingly, the CX definition the BP Group and partners endorse through our training, mentoring and consultancy is:

A customer experience is the sum of the thoughts, feelings and interactions a customer has about and with different products and services during the achievement of a goal or outcome

James Dodkins aka ‘CX Rockstar’

This talks neatly to the point that the experience starts with a need and finishes when that need has been fulfilled. It goes way beyond when the process for the company starts and ends.

What is your definition for Customer Experience?


So next time someone challenges you to define ‘what is customer experience?’ give them that.

You may even get people confusing customer experience with customer service but that discussion is for another day 😉

Do you want to embrace advanced Customer-Centric thinking and become Outside-In?
