How to Avoid the Metrics Trap AND FREE book

Guest this week is CX Guru, James Dodkins:

Download James Dodkins latest book 'Foundations for Customer Centricity' and learn how the very best companies avoid the Metrics Trap http://bit.ly/cxFoundations


I saw a quote the other day about how increasing testing won’t improve education and It made me think of the parallels between that and business.

Too many times we think in order to get better we need tighter measures over our everyday tasks and activities. However in actuality, the most successful organisations on the planet think more like a football (soccer) team and are more interested in the measures that directly impact success, the most important being the score.

So next time you find yourself wanting to increase your measures maybe you could take a football (soccer) team view and measure less but more important things.

South Africa pumps up the CEM Volume

Newly qualified CPP Champions in Johannesburg, April 2016
I can safely say that things are looking up in South Africa for the customer experience management community. 

My tenth annual visit concluded today after a week which included a CPP Champion session (see the team photo), a stimulating Certified Process Professional sundowner (with a remarkable turnout of 40+) and then finally leaders of African enterprises met for breakfast to review latest happenings in CEM,  BPM, and all things customer. 

CPP Champions preparing their cases
The breakfast session included a small deck on 'control the customer interaction and you control everything'.
You can get that here.

CEO IQ Business Adam Craker Chairs the Exec session
If you are in Africa and would like to join the ranks of Certified Process Professionals then IQ Business are the BP Group partners on the ground. With a cadre of experienced coaches, you can become qualified as a CPP Master or indeed have your internal CEM programme reviewed and mentored.
More than 60 companies have done so since 2013.
