What makes ABCG Cascade different?

Customer focussed planning, collaboration, communication and coaching are imperative in leading CX transformation.

Whilst identifying and recognising the importance of Customer Experience many companies are struggling to develop Customer Experience strategies that work across the company. Harvard Business Review comments “lack of alignment & collaboration within senior teams impedes CX delivery”.

ABCG believe that Senior Management behaviour is critical when leading CX transformation and there are a number of key blockers which are not being addressed, from lack of strategic alignment, inconsistent leadership, processes that inhibit speed of responses, to structure and ways of working, all of which inhibit collaboration.

ABCG Cascade is an intensive management capability
development programme that uses ‘live planning’ to equip
executive teams to deliver sustained change in CX performance.

 

By the end of the Cascade programme ABCG commit to delivering shared vision, aligned priorities & new processes.

Building on from the Status Audit findings and combining the
Investment Rationale, the first stage of the Cascade programme
consists of intensive Executive team workshops to specifically
address these issues, delivering shared vision, aligned
priorities, new processes, systems and tools.

Once the Executive Leadership team is ready we then move
to stage two and cascade this to the rest of the organisation.

Cascade encompasses a wide range of management,
front-line and specialist programmes using a blended learning
approach transforming organisational Customer Experience
priorities and behaviours.

Executives underestimate CX risk & reward and potential value of CX transformation. Cultivating a customer focussed culture is the critical senior management challenge.

“44% of executives believe customers are willing to pay premium for great CX… but 86% of customers say they do”.
