Customer Experience Management through Moments of Truth

Jan Carlzon, President of Scandinavian Airlines System, coined the term Moment of Truth for each customer contact in person, by phone, email or otherwise. He reached the conclusion that each one provides an opportunity to create a positive or a negative perception of the organization. Hence his "prescription" that says:
"Manage the dickens out of those unique, never-to-be repeated opportunities to distinguish ourselves in a memorable fashion from each and every one of our competitors."

The name of the game is therefore "to sweat the small stuff" and to become fanatically detail oriented to make each client touch point into a WOW experience. The formula for this is: WOW = OK + 1.

A +1 is something that is valued by the customers, which is over and above what was expected. There are three important criteria for +1's. They are necessary to ensure that each +1 creates added value for the customers and the business. They are:

  • They must have little or no cost.
    It's what you do for customers and not how much money you spend on it.
  • They must be quick and easy to do.
    Things that fit naturally with work practices without creating much extra work.
    Often, we can make time by stopping Non Value Added Activities (for which customers would not pay if they knew you were doing this)
  • They must be noted and valued by the customers.
    Things that people enjoy doing, that they are proud of doing and which make doing business with us easier and faster for the customers, while reducing cost.
