Demographic and economic shifts coupled with game-changing advances in digital technologies are changing customer behaviour faster than many large companies can respond. These changes create significant opportunities for the most agile and forward-looking businesses.
More informed and sceptical consumers are holding businesses to increasingly higher standards. A company's success in achieving customer-centricity and customer loyalty is no longer a differentiator. It has become a matter of survival.
To remain at the forefront, leading companies are transforming their businesses into customer-centric, digitally enabled and connected enterprises capable of responding to customer needs and creating new sources of customer value.
Understanding what motivates customers; the forces behind decision making and customer spending; and the experiences that can make or break customer loyalty and advocacy is the key to achieving growth today and for tomorrow.

But there is no point in creating a breakthrough customer experience if the new business model runs at a loss. It is all about getting close to your customers and staying there.
