Customer-centric philosophy has changed the game of acquiring, serving and retaining customers. Modern businesses treat their customers as segments of one, personalising the customer journey at every stage, and doing what’s right by customers to continually build their loyalty. We know this increases customer lifetime value, satisfaction and profitability, but with limited resources, how can we reorganise our businesses to build customer centric cultures, strategies and ways of working?
