Design Thinking: Creating an Exceptional Customer Experience

Programme Code: CRS-N-0043533

Overview

In a marketplace with vast and growing options, customer loyalty may seem like an elusive goal. How can companies create a consistent brand of service experience that will keep customers coming back? 

There has been a growing interest in behavioral science and design thinking in organizations (e.g., Amazon, Facebook, Google, Walmart, Hertz, and Pepsi), leading to the increasing execution of evidence-based strategies toward customer interactions—such approaches reveal that certain organizational assumptions/beliefs regarding how to improve customer satisfaction are often mistaken.

This programme will guide participants on understanding the cutting-edge behavioral science principles informing how customer motivation, memory, and irrationality play significant roles in shaping the customer experience.

Participants will learn the expectations of customers, how to design the customer experience, improve the process of customer experience, track the customer experience, and identify and mitigate pain points from the customer experience. This highly interactive 2-day programme will use industry case studies and an integrative plenary session at the end of the module for a comprehensive and integrated learning experience.

By learning the principles of behavioral science and design-thinking, participants will be equipped with the ability to form low-cost, yet high-impact strategies to improve customer satisfaction.

This module is part of the SMU Advanced Certificate in Service Excellence and Innovation.
