The prime reason is simple: the transparency of the web has changed the business game forever. Customers are empowered and dictate what they want, when and where they want it. Following Google’s philosopy, “focus on the customer and all else will follow” many organisations are becoming more customer-centric. This programme will enable you to embark on a journey of revisiting and co-designing your customer-centric strategies in 1 day.
