2. The Customer Agenda: The Impact of this changing world on customers is profound. Customers are more Individual, more self-centered than ever before and they care about themselves and their families first. They care about health, education, and wealth, as well as more emotional factors such as happiness, enjoyment and friendships.

They care about local communities, the social fabric itself and about broader national and global issues-such as environment, poverty, fairness and justice. 3.

The Customer is the Controller The customer used to travel to get his place, to take time off work because he wanted to, to be prepared to tolerate slow deliveries and to be grateful for any choice. He used to be happy to tell us all his details and pay more for a personal service. He even used to enjoy seeing adverts on television and waiting for the money-off coupons to come through the door.The customer doesnt need to play by our rules anymore-to go to the locations most convenient for us to be open and pushed as the customer quite frankly knows more about what he is seeking to buy than we do because He checked them all out online.The customer knows the options and how much competitors are selling for. And also he knows how much he prepared to pay and if we dont do a deal, he will have plenty more choices.We shouldnt forget that he is the customer. He is in control. 9. Customer Power Customer demand, expect and know more. Ifcan delivera book or washing machine the next day, why does it take a car retailer three months to get new car or local store eight weeks to deliver some new furniture?The availabilityEmotions drives customers attitude and behaviors like never before. In general, Customer satisfaction has not increased. In this hyperactive, emotional world, it is the extremes of emotion that can stir customers inside as 100% satisfaction is the expected from us and the same for the delight , Surprise is what Customer wantof information, unlimited web research and strength of recommendations between friends means that Customers are more knowledgeable and able than ever before. 10. Customer Attitude: Rising Expectations, Falling Trust. Companies need customers customers need companies.morethanIn the past, the unhappy customer was thought to tell around ten to twelve other people of their misfortune or annoyance round a dinner table whereas now they get online and give the company a negative review by write a blog or add a comment to somebody elses site, where hundreds or may be thousands of people can instantly share their unhappiness.So, just imagine if the unhappy customer to decides to feature his unhappiness on YouTube video that is then watched by thousands of others or writes his review on Amazon that is read by every other potential customer. 11. PULL NOT PUSH Business moves from hunters to gatherer, from aggression to assertion, from doing things when and how business wants, to when and how the customer wants.Business used to be powerful and to push customers to buy products .Customer played along with this because they had limited choice.Business became even more aggressive, with more commercial breaks interrupting TV programs and movies, or buying lists of target customers and then mailing them or send them text messages in the hope of winning their attention, but Customers resented this intrusion. 12. PULL NOT PUSH Customers want to work with us but on their terms as they have the awareness and intelligence to know what they want and to explore where they can get it. They have the means to research and evaluate their options in terms of comparing specifications or finding the best price.Of course, We still need to be visible, to have presence and brand that is known and well regarded because Reputation is best achieved through word of mouth and Image is best achieved through sponsoring events that target audiences want to be part of, endorsed by experts or celebrities who people trust and aspire to be like. 13.

Inside Out : Imagine if everything started with customers and , more broadly, the marketplace and environment where you do business - the outside.Doing business from the outside in is different as it recognizes that markets are constantly changing, that competition is constantly evolving, that customers wants and aspirations continually change and grow. It therefore knows that the past is a poor guide to the future that success is found by moving with markets with most profitable growth rather than hanging on to outdated capabilities.
