CX Point of View Series
Are you proving the value of your CX initiatives?
In this 3-part series, authors Scott McCallister and Mohamed Latib argue for the entire discipline of CX by insisting practitioners measure their CX initiatives using hard data, thus underlining the real ROI and financial outcomes (success) of CX-centered strategies.
Testing CX Initiatives for Financial Benefits
Measurement Models for your Business Case
All Customer Experience gurus state that a connection of CX initiatives to the company bottom-line is important, but few discuss the hard details on how to do that. Past publications on this issue make a weak business case because they rely on analyses of correlations between satisfaction survey results and corporate or division-level revenues.
In this article, we will describe several types of tests that can be structured to determine whether CX initiatives have a positive effect on a company’s financial results. The types are:
Actual results versus baseline expectations of a business segment
Actual results of a test group versus a control group
Comparing actual financial results of individuals and groups of customers with different CX exposures
