1. 1 Chapter 4 Focusing on Customers

2. Key Idea Introduction To create satisfied customers, the organization needs to identify customers? needs, design the production and service systems to meet those needs, and measure the results as the basis for improvement.

3. 3 Importance of Customer Satisfaction and Loyalty ?Satisfaction is an attitude; loyalty is a behavior? Loyal customers spend more, are willing to pay higher prices, refer new clients, and are less costly to do business with. It costs five times more to find a new customer than to keep an existing one happy. A firm cannot create loyal customers without first creating satisfied customers.

4. Key Idea Importance of customer satisfaction Customer wants and needs drive competitive advantage, and statistics show that growth in market share is strongly correlated with customer satisfaction.

5. 5 American Customer Satisfaction Index Measures customer satisfaction at national level Introduced in 1994 by University of Michigan and American Society for Quality Measures national index, seven industrial sectors, 40 industries, 203 companies Continual decline in index from 1994 through 1998 with a small improvement into 2000 suggests that quality improvements have not kept pace with consumer expectations

6. ACSI Model of Customer Satisfaction Perceived quality Customer complaints Perceived value Customer satisfaction Customer expectations Customer loyalty

7. Key Idea ACSI The econometric model used to produce ACSI links customer satisfaction to its determinants: customer expectations, perceived quality, and perceived value. Customer satisfaction, in turn, is linked to customer loyalty, which has an impact on profitability.

8. 8 Customer-Driven Quality Cycle measurement and feedback Customer needs and expectations (expected quality) Identification of customer needs Translation into product/service specifications (design quality) Output (actual quality) Customer perceptions (perceived quality) PERCEIVED QUALITY is a comparison of ACTUAL QUALITY to EXPECTED QUALITY

9. Key Idea Creating Satisfied Customer Many organizations still focus more on processes and products from an internal perspective, rather than taking the perspective of the external customer.

10. Leading Practices (1 of 2) Define and segment key customer groups and markets Understand the voice of the customer (VOC) Understand linkages between VOC and design, production, and delivery

11. Leading Practices (2 of 2) Build relationships through commitments, provide accessibility to people and information, set service standards, and follow-up on transactions Effective complaint management processes Measure customer satisfaction for improvement

12. Identifying Customers Key Customer Groups Organization level consumers external customers employees society Process level internal customer units or groups Performer level individual internal customers

13. Identifying Internal Customers What products or services are produced? Who uses these products and services? Who do employees call, write to, or answer questions for? Who supplies inputs to the process?

14. 14 AT&T Customer-Supplier Model

15. Key Idea Identifying Customers The natural customer-supplier linkages among individuals, departments, and functions build up the ?chain of customers? throughout an organization that connect every individual and function to the external customers and consumers, thus characterizing the organization?s value chain.

16. Customer Segmentation Demographics Geography Volumes Profit potential Vital few & useful many

17. Key Idea Customer Segmentation Segmentation allows a company to prioritize customer groups, for instance by considering for each group the benefits of satisfying their requirements and the consequences of failing to satisfy their requirements.

18. Understanding Customer Needs Key Dimensions of Quality Performance ? primary operating characteristics Features ? ?bells and whistles? Reliability ? probability of operating for specific time and conditions of use Conformance ? degree to which characteristics match standards Durability - amount of use before deterioration or replacement Serviceability ? speed, courtesy, and competence of repair Aesthetics ? look, feel, sound, taste, smell

19. 19 Key Dimensions of Service Quality Reliability ? ability to provide what was promised Assurance ? knowledge and courtesy of employees and ability to convey trust Tangibles ? physical facilities and appearance of personnel Empathy ? degree of caring and individual attention Responsiveness ? willingness to help customers and provide prompt service

20. 20 Kano Model of Customer Needs Dissatisfiers: expected requirements Satisfiers: expressed requirements Exciters/delighters: unexpected features

21. Key Idea Understanding Customer Needs As customers become familiar with them, exciters/delighters become satisfiers over time. Eventually, satisfiers become dissatisfiers.

22. Key Idea Gathering Customer Information Companies use a variety of methods, or ?listening posts,? to collect information about customer needs and expectations, their importance, and customer satisfaction with the company?s performance on these measures.

23. 23 Gathering Customer Information-- Customer Listening Posts Comment cards and formal surveys Focus groups Direct customer contact Field intelligence Complaint analysis Internet monitoring

25. Key Idea Customer Relationship Management An organization needs to build customer loyalty by developing trust, communicating with customers, and effectively managing the interactions and relationships with customers.

26. Moments of Truth Every instance in which a customer comes in contact with an employee of the company. Example (airline) Making a reservation Purchasing tickets Checking baggage Boarding a flight Ordering a beverage Requests a magazine Deplanes Picks up baggage

27. Customer Relationship Management Accessibility and commitments Selecting and developing customer contact employees Relevant customer contact requirements Effective complaint management Strategic partnerships and alliances Exploiting CRM technology

28. Key Idea Customer Contact Employees Companies must carefully select customer contact employees, train them well, and empower them to meet and exceed customer expectations.

29. Key Idea Effective Complaint Mgmt To improve products and processes effectively, companies must do more than simply fix the immediate problem. They need a systematic process for collecting and analyzing complaint data and then using that information for improvements.

30. 30 Measuring Customer Satisfaction Discover customer perceptions of business effectiveness Compare company?s performance relative to competitors Identify areas for improvement Track trends to determine if changes result in improvements

31. Key Idea Measuring Customer Satisfaction An effective customer satisfaction measurement system results in reliable information about customer ratings of specific product and service features and about the relationship between these ratings and the customer?s likely future market behavior.

32. Survey Design Identify purpose Determine who should conduct the survey Select the appropriate survey instrument Design questions and response scales

33. Key Idea Survey Design The types of questions to ask in a survey must be properly worded to achieve actionable results. By actionable, we mean that responses are tied directly to key business processes, so that what needs to be improved is clear; and information can be translated into cost/revenue implications to support the setting of improvement priorities.

34. Key Idea Analyzing Customer Feedback Appropriate customer satisfaction measurement identifies processes that have high impact on satisfaction and distinguishes between low performing processes low performance and those that are performing well.

35. Performance-Importance Analysis Performance Importance Low High Low High Who cares? Overkill Vulnerable Strengths

36. Difficulties with Customer Satisfaction Measurement Poor measurement schemes Failure to identify appropriate quality dimensions Failure to weight dimensions appropriately Lack of comparison with leading competitors Failure to measure potential and former customers Confusing loyalty with satisfaction

37. Customer Perceived Value CPV measures how customers assess benefits?such as product performance, ease of use, or time savings?against costs, such as purchase price,installation cost or time, and so on,in making purchase decisions.

38.
