CX Manangement Maturity Assessment document

Is Your CX Management Maturity Assessment Flawed?

Ever hear the carpenter’s mantra, “measure twice, cut once’?

In 2017, one of the largest global investment banks performed a CX maturity assessment, developed their CX strategy and funded it according to the outcome of the assessment, and got to work. A full year later, in mid 2018, after funneling resources to power up their assessment-based strategy, their CX scores along all dimensions assessed had either remained static or dropped. The problem was their CX assessment used the perspectives of the wrong people and measured the wrong things (inputs) forcing them to work on the wrong dimensions (outputs) out of sync with what their customers valued in their banking expectations.  $18 million and a year later, they realized their mistake as their market share shrank by 4%.  In this white paper we illustrate how to measure CX management effectively.
