Customer Experience Indexes: A Tool for Gaining Empathy, Insights & Alignment

Speaker bio: Jeff Patton is a graduate from Austin Center for Design and has been designing digital infrastructure and IT support tools at Rackspace for nearly 4 years. He enjoys diving into messy problems and finding ways to visualize solutions; he believes the more complex the problem, the more it requires visuals to create a story that people can understand & align behind. He finds the Customer Experience Index to be a unique tool for doing just that. Summary: We will review the Customer Experience Index (CEI) process used at Rackspace and the ways it can be used to increase understanding, create a standardized way of judging experiences, benchmark experiences to track improvements and gain alignment across business units. We will cover: - When best to use a CEI - The process of creating a CEI - Ways to leverage a CEI - How to use the CEI to track improvements
