The DNA of Customer Experience: How Emotions Drive Value, Review
Book by Colin Shaw
Show me the money! This is the frantic cry of the “old guard” of senior executives as they desperately struggle to deal with commoditizing markets, the loss of their differentiator and the inevitable impact on profitability. At the same time, the new breed of enlightened, customer-focused executives knowingly smile, seeing the answer is simple: focus on the customer rather than the organization, provide customers with an emotionally engaging experience, and the rest will take care of itself.
