The challenge we are very familiar with is one of technology disruption, empowered and increasingly complex customers, shifting markets and new competitors.
The common incumbent response to this challenge? Proclaim to 'put the customer at the heart of everything we do' or to become 'omnichannel'. Create a transformation programme that runs parallel to business-as-usual. Or throw money at ‘wow’ moments and respond to customer feedback at face value.
Customer-centric businesses do not grow profitably by following the common response. Instead, they unlock growth by genuinely going Outwith – it means ‘outside’ and ‘beyond’. They discover the promises and experiences their most valuable customers really demand, and then inspire and purposefully organise their business to excel at delivering them.
They believe that growing customer lifetime value is the ultimate driver of sustained success. Valued customers lead to a more valued business – by investors, regulators and other stakeholders alike.
Our clients describe us as builders, engineers, coaches, mentors - we don't really mind, whatever fits best. What we do care about is helping them develop and embed the essential capabilities that create long-term growth.
