Drawing on deep research and examples from industries as diverse as airlines and brokerages, hospitals and hospitality, consulting and construction, Stewart and O’Connell show how to apply the principles of service design in ways that uniquely fit your strategy. And the authors demonstrate how to use service design to set customers’ expectations—and meet them in every interaction, in every channel, every time.
Woo, Wow, and Win teaches you how to create “Ahhh” moments—when the customer makes a positive judgment—and to avoid “Ow” moments—when you lose a sale or, worse, customer trust. Stewart and O’Connell show how to map and evaluate all your interactions with customers; how to evaluate your ability to design and deliver great experiences; how to build innovation into your business model; and how to align your culture with the strategy and design you have selected.
Whatever your industry, whether you’re giving haircuts, selling life insurance, or managing an office building, your customers are as much a part of your business as your employees are. Woo, Wow, and Win shows you how to enlist them as collaborators in your success—and accelerate your company’s growth and profitability.
