Truly Putting the Customer First: An Introduction to Service Design and Customer Journey Mapping

We’re going virtual for our 4/8 meetup. Join us for networking and content socially distanced!

We hope to keep the central Ohio digital analytics and marketing community engaging with great content and with each other, even if we have to do so in a socially distant manner. So, our April 8th scheduled event will be happening, with the topic we had set for March, and with the aid of technology.

The basics of the format:

  • We will use the Zoom video conferencing platform (please use the desktop app and to turn ON your camera if possible)
  • We will start at 7:00 (rather than our usual 6:30 PM)
  • We will still do door prizes (but they will be different from the T-shirts we’ve done of late)
  • We will encourage audience participation during the main presentation
  • Following the presentation, we will break out into smaller groups for some brief freeform discussions

We hope you will consider joining us. The core content will be fantastic (details below), and we hope to see that we can socially and professionally engage while being geographically distant and safe.

Analytics is often focused on measuring and analyzing what customers do as they interact with our sites, our physical stores, and our call centers. At this month’s event, Monica and Anthony Weiler from Stratos Innovation Group will provide an introduction to a different—but highly complementary—mindset for thinking about customer behavior.

Service design and customer journey mapping apply a holistic, human-centered approach that blends together aspects of different disciplines—human factors, psychology, research, design, and analytics—to develop a deep understanding of the human beings who also happen to be our target customers.  Their presentation will cover what these emerging disciplines are, how they can be applied to uncover new opportunities for improving the customer experience, and how and where they complement traditional behavioral analytics.

This is definitely a meetup you will not want to miss!

Zoom Guidelines:

  • Please use the desktop app and turn on your camera (if you have one and are comfortable with that).
  • During the talk and Q+A period, please place yourself on mute.
  • If you have a question please place it in chat.
  • After the Q+A period you will receive an invitation to join a small “breakout room” to talk with a random small group of attendees. The speakers will remain in the main room.
    • Accepting the breakout room invite is optional, but if you do accept you’ll be placed in the sub-room for approximately 10 minutes until the room expires or you leave.
    • You may leave the breakout room at any time to return to the main room or simply leave the event. Other attendees in the breakout room should understand this is not a judgement of their conversational skills.
    • We will do up to 2 rounds of this networking, after which everyone will return to the main room.
