Customer experience is an enterprise-wide strategy, not a functional one. The key to aligning your organisation is to align the senior executive team first
Your CX effort may well start in one part of the business because of a pressing need. However without eventually gaining organisation-wide support and commitment there is only so much that can be achieved. Customers interact with companies how and when they choose – across channels and across different platforms – without any interest in functional boundaries. They expect to have a seamless experience and if the organisation is not joined up, they probably won’t. It is essential that all functions – marketing, operations, technology, finance and HR – are aligned because they all impact the customer experience in one way or another.
At its core, establishing organisation-wide buy-in and commitment to a customer experience strategy, (or any other strategy), is a leadership issue. Senior executives play a critical role through their communication, their role modelling, the way they spend their time, the decisions they take and by the behaviour they recognise and celebrate.
