ijgolding

I have written many times in the past about the importance of effective communication if an organisation has an intention to deliver consistently better Customer Experiences. Whilst much of my writing has been focused on the importance of the communication relationship between a company and the customer, I have not been as vocal about the almost equal criticality of the communication between a company and it’s employees.

Don’t Invent – Innovate: The Art of Resolving Human Need

Michelli Experience

For me… Invention is the creation of something new. Innovation is creating a new solution that addresses a human need. If I were so inclined, I could go into my garage cobble together some random materials and produce a “one of a kind” object. I could call it Joseph’s garage invention. While I might amuse myself in the process, the invention would be nothing more than an expression of my creative process. Innovation, by contrast, requires an effort to solve a problem.

NewVoiceMedia

I was visiting a client last week and we started talking about the recent trend in customer experience which suggests that customers should come first over everything else.
