Everything you always wanted to know about Customer Journey Mapping!

Super overview deck about customer journey mapping from the founders of Samply.

Really great to see how the topic of customer journey mapping is getting more and more popular and widespread, the below material also nicely reflects this development.

Earlier CJM was just a simple tool mostly used by designers to map the interaction of the customers with a products / service. Today we have several different versions, we are doing employee journeys, stakeholder journey, we add different internal process related dimensions, impossible to count how many different ways journeys are used nowadays. We are leaving a customer journey revolution :)

Anyway check the slideshare deck below from Marc Stickdorn, really nice summary on Customer Journey Mapping.

Some previous articles on the Customer Journey mapping topic:

Samsung Safety Truck

In Argetinatina almost 1 person dies in a car accident everyday, Samsung had an idea how to make traffic a bit safer.

Nice marketing idea, combination of technology and giving back to society, not solving the problem, but looks effective in drawing the attention on the problem.

CX Webinar by KPMG Nunwood

An interesting webinar (looks free, but not sure about this) from KMPG about what is the current situation / level of customer experience in the Telecommunication market -special focus on the UK market.

The webinar will take place Thursday 5th November 12.00pm, if you like it you can check the registration page by clicking here!

KPMG PMG Nunwood’s Customer Experience Excellence Centre recently surveyed the UK market, drawing on over 10,000 consumer interviews to evaluate 272 brands. The research revealed the telecoms industry faces something of a customer crisis, with slight, but near universal declines in the UK CEE analysis, from an already weak position.

The increasing sophistication of the product, coupled with forthcoming M&A activity, will spell either opportunities for new customer success or deeper challenges for an uncertain sector. The UK CEE revealed:

  • Telecoms is now ranked 9th of all industries included in the 2015 UK CEE, ahead of only utilities and the public sector
  • Most major telecoms brands are in decline
  • Customer experience investments in telecoms are not creating consistent value

Join us for this exclusive webinar to learn more about the telecoms industry’s performance and find out where telecoms brands should be investing to improve their customer experience.
