A Chief Information Officer (CIO) could bring about customer-centric cultural change in an organisation.
Businesses that want to become customer-centric must adopt the right tech to provide personalised experiences and assess data across channels to understand customers better. Moreover, companies must have a shared understanding of what consumer-centricity means across departments.
With most companies being product-or brand-centric, understanding consumers’ expectations, needs, disappointments, and mindsets is imperative. With the appropriate mix of technology, skills, and agile processes, organisations can digitally transform and shift their culture towards customer-centricity.
Companies’ C-suites, however, must be unified in their commitment to move its culture towards a more consumer-centric one. Further, traditional marketing strategies that use a top-down approach and are focused on the product can make it difficult for brands to implement a company-wide cultural shift to customer-centricity.
