Design Optimal Experiences with Customer Journey Maps

Customer journey maps are a powerful tool for analyzing a user’s or customer’s thoughts, feelings and actions throughout their relationship with your organization. Customer experiences are nonlinear, and the map identifies key touchpoints where the customer is deciding to:

  • click on your link – or a competitor’s
  • stay on your site – or “bounce” to another site
  • read what you have to say – or give up
  • believe in the value you are describing
  • purchase, engage – or bail out
  • remain a loyal customer – or make a change
  • recommend you to their friends – or leave a negative review

After you’ve identified these inflection points, you are ready to design an experience that will educate, nudge, guide, delight and convince the user to stay engaged, and keep moving along the desired phases of the relationship.

In this fascinating session, service design practitioner Judy Cotter will walk us through the process of creating a customer journey map and share her recommendations for explaining to leadership how they’re used and why they’re valuable. She’ll talk about ways to use journey maps to inform your organization’s strategy, as well as how to execute to the strategy.
