CHANGE? QUESTION: WHAT IS CHANGING? EVERYBODY IS TALKING ABOUT CHANGE BUT VERY FEW HAVE THOUGHT ABOUT WHAT IT IS... 2min IMAGE BY LOTUS CARROLL ON FLICKR:COM QUESTION: WHAT ARE CUSTOMERS ASKING FOR TODAY? THAT DIDN'T EXIST THREE YEARS AGO 2min COMPANIES ARE EXPERIENCING OR ANTICIPATING PAIN BASED ON A GROWING GAP BETWEEN THEMSELVES AND THEIR CUSTOMERS - THE QUESTION THEY ASK IS: HOW CAN I CLOSE THIS GAP? According to a recent global study of 1,500 CEOs conducted by IBM, the biggest challenge those CEOs face is the so called complexity gap. Eight out of 10 expect the business environment to grow in complexity, but fewer than half feel prepared for the change. The research also reveals that CEOs see a lack of customer insight as their biggest deﬁcit in managing complexity. They prioritize gaining customer insight far above other decision-related tasks and rank “customer obsession” as the most critical leadership trait. SOURCE: An Anthropologist walks into a bar... Christian Madsbjerg and Mikkel B. Rasmussen HBR March 2014 QUESTION: WHAT IS THE GAP BETWEEN YOU AND YOUR CUSTOMERS TODAY AND IN THREE YEARS?

Technology’s promise is not simply to automate processes, but to open routes to new ways of doing business. 78% of respondents, achieving digital transformation will become critical to their organizations within the next two years. However, 63% said the pace of technology change in their organization is too slow.

THE BARRIER HERE IS THE COST OF TECHNOLOGY. TODAY TECHNOLOGY HAS BECOME SO CHEAP THAT THERE ISN'T A BARRIER ANYMORE. TESCO SENDS OUT 5 MILLION INDIVIDUAL CUSTOMER LETTERS EACH YEAR.

PART 2 2 PART What should the marketing function's top priority be at your organization? (% respondents) To which area has marketing contributed most in the past year? (% respondents) Driving revenue growth Improving your organization's reputation Retaining existing customers 30 22 22 The C-suite view of the CMO Agenda, 2012 COMMENT: There is a gap between what the organization wants from its communication and how it is used - we except this gap to close the next years. Which means communication will be measured less on communication goals and more on business goals. COMMUNICATION IS A TOOL DESIGNED TO FIT THE BEHAVIORS OF THE CUSTOMER. WHEN THESE BEHAVIORS CHANGE OUR MARKETING NEEDS TO ADAPT. 0 COMMENT: Investments are moving towards channels enabling the nurturing of personal relationships. Today the customers are individuals, not masses. Technology today allows for individually tailored communication to millions of customers at the same time.

"The implications of our ﬁndings are that fostering customer participation can be very proﬁtable and that companies are better oﬀ when they emphasize customer participation over word of mouth, as opposed to the reverse. Our study of the retail bank mentioned earlier suggests that customer activity directed toward the company creates more customer “stickiness” (greater attachment and commitment) than customer-to-customer activity."

QUESTION: HOW CAN LASER PRECISION AND RELATIONSHIPS CHANGE THE WAY YOU THINK ABOUT MARKETING? 2min CUSTOMERS3 PART CUSTOMER CENTRICITY Inversion. The old logic of wealth creation worked from the perspective of the organization and its requirements—for efficiency, cost reductions, revenues, growth, earnings per share (EPS), and returns on investment (ROI)—and pointed inward. The new logic starts with the individual end user. Instead of “What do we have and how can we sell it to you?” good business practices start by asking “Who are you?” “What do you need?” and “How can we help?” This inverted thinking makes it possible to identify the assets that represent real value for each individual. Cash ﬂow and proﬁtability are derived from those assets. - Shoshana zuboff - Creating value in the age of distributed capitalism, McKinsey Companies’ upstream activities—such as sourcing, production, and logistics—are being commoditized or outsourced, while downstream activities aimed at shaping customers’ perception and reducing their costs and risks are emerging as the main sources of competitive advantage. To compete effectively, companies must shift their focus from upstream to downstream activities, emphasizing how they deﬁne their competitive set, inﬂuence customers’ purchase criteria, innovate to solve customer problems, and build advantage by accumulating customer data and harnessing network effect. - Niraj Dawar - When Marketing is Strategy, HBR We come up with technology, then ﬁnd a use for it and then try to invent meaning through advertising and communication… we have to push meaning to the beginning. - Anne Kirah For many organizations, the challenge lies in ﬁnding innovative ways to capture the “voice of the customer” and infuse customer insights across all business functions, from the point of sale to the call centre, in order to create business value. - The Economist Intelligence Unit and SAS Institute, Voice of the Customer.
