Interesting survey result in the June 2010 edition of CIO Magazine.Â 90% of respondents to a survey by Forrester Research reported that customer experience was "critical" or "very important" to the corporate strategy.Â No surprise there.Â The responses on the obstacles to improving customer experience were very revealing:
- 53% (over half) reported "No clear strategy for improving the customers experience
- 50% expressed a "Need for customer-experience management processes."
- 49% are experiencing "insufficient cooperation across groups"
- 32% report a "lack of understanding about customers"
