Calculate Your Organization’s Customer-Centricity

Lynn Hunsaker


Customer Culture


  • Many things done in organizations are primarily self-serving

    • There must be a benefit to the organization in order to justify the effort

    • “Ethno-centric” means emphasizing one’s own viewpoint or benefits

    • A self-serving approach ignores the reality of others’ roles in your success

  • Customer profitability increases when win-win is built-in to every process

    • “Customer-centric” means customers are at the center of your decisions,not secondary

    • If customers are at the center of your service decisions but not your product decisions, it’s likely that your products will cause a lot of service costs (lower profits!)

    • This holds true for every process and policy across your organization

    • Self-serving approaches are ultimately costly; customer-centric approaches can minimize waste and increase organic demand, revenue and profit

What a re your programs that affect customers
What Are Your Programs That Affect Customers?

  • Identify Your Programs That Affect Customers

  • 1. Examples of customer programs for:

  • Product Development: advisory boards, user groups, ethnography, etc.

  • Revenue Generation: CRM, 1-on-1, experiential, rewards, WOM, etc.

  • Product & Service Usage: technical support, touch-points, upgrades, etc.

How does everyone benefit

  • Identify Benefits & Preventions

  • 2. For each customer program, consider the outcomes, processes and policies relating to:

    • How does the program benefit you?

    • How does the program prevent negatives for you?

    • How does the program benefit your customer?

    • How does the program prevent negatives for your customer?

Calculate the benefit of each program
Calculate the Benefit of Each Program

  • Quantify the Benefits

  • 3. Mark each benefit with an S or L to indicate short- or long-term benefit or prevention.

  • 4. Rate each benefit or prevention: 5 = High, 4 = Medium, 3 = Low, 2 = Nominal, 1 = Superficial

    • Benefits and preventions are additive

    • Add the short-term benefits and preventions and write the sum in the Ratings column

    • Add the long-term befits and preventions and write the sum in the Rating column

Who benefits the most

  • Return on Investment

  • 5. Add the short-term ratings and then the long-term ratings in each column.

  • 6. Calculate the ratio of your value versus your customer’s value:

    • Your short-term total ÷ your customer’s short-term total = ________.

    • Your long-term total ÷ your customer’s long-term total = _______.

  • 7. Based on your analysis above, brainstorm improvements in customer-centricity:

Opportunities to Increase Customer-Centricity

  • Use your chart as a change management tool to engage program managers and executive sponsors.

  • Remind everyone that there’s always more than one way to do something!

  • Remind everyone that first providing value for customers (when it’s less of a hassle and more of a joy to do business with you) enables you to reap value from more organic customer demand

  • Brainstorm and implement ways to make everything you do provide more benefits and preventions for your customers primarily, and for you secondarily:

    • For anything that requires effort from customers, make sure they get ROI.

    • Time your process cycles to correspond to customers’ timelines.

    • Adjust your policies to make things easier and intuitive for customers.

    • Adjust internal policies, processes and deliverables to improve empowerment of customer-facing professionals.

    • Make sure customer-facing professionals and other customer touch-points have an efficient way to forward information to the right place across the company and quickly get meaningful answers back to customers.

    • Think “prevention” – especially when it comes to hassles for customers.

    • Pretend a customer is in the room when you make decisions.
