I’m glad to share that in my next webinar with Product School, I’ll get to chat about customer experience, my favorite theme in Product Management. I’ll share my perspective on how to understand, measure, and improve customer experience (CX). I find CX to be an exciting and never-ending challenge in product management.
What will you hear in the webinar?
I’ll share 4 tips to measure and improve CX that I stumbled upon over the last few years.
Tip #1 Data + Empathy
As a Product Manager, you benefit from mixing anecdotes and data to have an understanding of customer needs. We’ll take one case study related to this article to look at how to combine three layers of customer insights.
Tip #2 Signals + Metrics
You can track the success metrics of your product launch better by defining output metrics vs intermediary signals of progress. We’ll use a case study to look at defining input vs output metrics. Due to the latency in updates of output metrics, we’ll see how to find intermediate signals that show the success or failure of a product launch.
Tip #3 Process + Product
Sometimes you need to drive stakeholder alignment and internal process changes to improve customer experience. We’ll use another part of the same case study in changing the process of a few customer-facing teams to improve customer experience.
Tip #4 Checklist
If you haven’t read Checklist Manifesto by Dr. Atul Gawande, I’ll summarize my takeaway as 1) have a checklist of steps to do for everything you do such as heart surgery or a product launch 2) prepare for crisis or unexpected events (black swans?) by having a checklist of communication so that the cross-functional check-ins guide the path forward.
You can build your own checklist for product launch and for communicating with customers to ensure you have your metrics ready, your communication is well received, and you are driving the desired customer behavior. I discussed this earlier in this article.
