Customer Experience Workshop

Workshop

Teams everywhere – from startups to enterprises – have identified the customer experience as a key element of their success. This workshop teaches the fundamentals of customer experience management, with a focus on the particular issues and challenges faced by the team.

Since 1997, Creative Good has pioneered the discipline of customer experience in digital business, working with hundreds of companies across a variety of industries. Our workshops inspire teams to include customer insights in the development of products and services.

Over the course of this full-day customer experience workshop, we will cover how to conduct research and listen to customers, collect insights, distill the insights into thematic findings, then convert those findings into actionable next steps and discuss how to effectively socialize the findings throughout the organization.

Testimonials

Teams everywhere – from startups to enterprises – have identified the customer experience as a key element of their success.

"We hired Creative Good to run a workshop for us to help build support for our growing user-centered design practice. The impact from this workshop on our culture was significant. Stakeholders that usually resisted user research and design thinking started to embrace and advocate for these valuable practices."

— Director of Enterprise User Experience

"The Creative Good workshop helped reinforce our company's philosophy around having a user-centric development process. At the time, we had several team members who were new to product management and UX, so the vivid, engaging nature of the workshop was particularly powerful and useful for our team. We definitely recommend the workshop for anyone looking to run a more customer-centric development process."
