Launching a customer-centric approach with Quality Assurance

Dr. Jodie, we want to change our existing approach to a more customer-centric approach.  Where is the best place to start?   – John D.


Thanks for your question, John.  Changing from a product-centric or company-centric approach to a customer-centric approach will certainly serve your company well in the long-run. Be prepared that the changeover will be a challenge as you relearn engrained behaviors – but it’s worth it. When you undertake what we call the Quality Assurance Transformation Process, you must do away with your old company- or product-centric behaviors, change your way of thinking, and act to deliver exceptional customer experiences.

To have a more customer-centric approach the first thing to do is stop think like a company and to start thinking like your customers. The customer experience is not what you (the company) think it is or how you think it should be, so be honest and admit that this defines your currently strategy. Truly shifting your way of thinking and continuously measuring the customer experience identifies the gaps between what YOU think is an excellent customer experience and what the CUSTOMER thinks is excellent.

You are not alone to be struggling with a gap between the two. John, this quality transformation dramatically enhances the development of healthy and strong customer relationships. Customer Relationship Metrics has created a contact center quality transformation chart that represents the overall summary for the Quality Assurance Transformation Process. Please use it as you frame you build your customer-centric approach. Don’t be an organization that talks a good game but then doesn’t deliver on its stated mission. – Dr. Jodie
