It encompasses both intra- and interpersonal processes. National Scientific Council on the Developing Child2 Infants experience, express, and perceive emotions before they fully understand them.
Most recent CEO surveys position 'customer experience' as one of the top business priorities but talk is cheap. What is customer experience and why is it important?
And what do business leaders exactly need to know about customer experience?
To answer these questions, I reached out to a former Gartner analysts and arguably one of the top customer experience experts in the world.
Esteban Kolsky is the founder and principal of thinkJara Customer Strategy consulting and think tank organization helping companies and user successfully become better, more open, and more collaborative organizations.
Kolsky is a customer strategist, researcher, keynote speaker, and a consultant analyst for 15 years, 8 years with Gartner. Kolsky is highly influential and widely considered as one of the smartest people covering the science of customer experience.
Kolsky believes that research has become a commodity and value has shifted from discovery to analysis and experience applied to better understanding of the issues and the solutions.
Kolsky is a deep thinker, facts-driven, and sometimes controversial with his views.
Customer experience is defined as the sum total of conscious events, as as a coordinated series of interactions between a customer and a brand to accomplish anything. Above all words - a customer experience is defined by the customer, for the customer, at each touch-point, each time.
Customer Experience Management CXM is a business science that has the purpose of determining the strategy and programs that can make the customer feel good enough about the company to want to continue to do business with the company.
If a customer likes you and continues to like you, they will do business with you. If they don't, they won't. But is customer experience something that can be manufactured, engineered, owned or controlled by companies? Kolsky's concern is that companies believe that the customer experience is something that has to be manufactured, engineered or prepared for the customer.
Whereas the customer is willing to define their experience as they go along, and this why most of the work in this area is of little to value. Kolsky believes that the customer experience process is non-deterministic, so one-time generically manufactured experiences ignore the nuances and complexities of actual interactions with customers.
Kolsky believes that the customer experiences must be chosen and validated by the customer. He does not believe that the customer experience is offered by the company. The company does however need to build an infrastructure - combination of cloud, mobile, social, apps, data science, CRM, community platforms and related technologies - to allow the customer to do whatever they want, whenever they want, and however they want.
Customer experience is not a onetime event, and every single interaction is going to be different. Greenberg recently defined customer engagement as: The customer chooses and therefore the control resides with the customer.
The customer owns the customer experience. Some will argue that depending on the industry, business regulations, compliance and governance will not allow companies to broadly deliver this level of customer defined experiential ubiquity.Hence, it is important that sociologists, and other social scientists, demonstrate why these problems have sociological causes, enabling the individual to understand how his or her biography is linked to the structure and history of society.
The importance of social media in business is growing at warp speed.

With more and more people joining social media sites and using them regularly/efficiently, the social media industry is bound to become bigger in the coming years. When social scientists studied cases of severe isolation in children, they realized that they did not have a personality, they just existed.
They did not experience joy, anger, sadness or any emotion that would be consistent with a child that had been loved and held throughout their young lives.
The themes include the importance of a social network for the older adult, as well as how this type of network can impact their quality of life. An exploration of these themes will be provided using literature along with my own personal experience.
Customer experience is the most important priority for any business. Evolving demand of customer self service at their own convenience has raised the use of technology to solve their queries.
