"Why read Outside In? Because a focus on customer experience and an outside-in perspective are the cornerstones of business success. The strongest client relationships are built on trust, mutual respect, and really listening to each other. Those are the kinds of relationships that can last a lifetime."
— Vanguard Chairman and CEO Bill McNabb

"This eye-opener gives you a comprehensive, need-to-know look at how smart companies achieve sustainable success in dealing with customers.  Hint:  It involves the entire organization, not just those on the 'front lines.' The GPS-like guidance provided here is invaluable."
— Steve Forbes, Chairman and Editor-in-Chief, Forbes
"Enjoyable, Easy, Meets Needs. This is Manning and Bodine’s Customer experience pyramid, listed in order of importance for the customer. Yes, it’s hard to make the changes needed to deliver on these promises. But there is a simple first step: read this book.
— Don Norman, Nielsen Norman Group, author of Living with Complexity

"Manning and Bodine understand that a good customer experience is actually less expensive to provide than a poor one and customers will pay more for a good one than for a bad one. Nothing drives profitability like an excellent customer experience does."
— Dan Hesse, CEO, Sprint

"I define customer centricity as simply ‘the one who pays you money placed at the center of everything you do.’ If you buy that definition, then buy this book, for Manning and Bodine provide a blueprint for doing just that. Following its prescriptions will yield enjoyable experiences for your customers by understanding them — from the outside in."
—  B. Joseph Pine II, co-author, The Experience Economy and Infinite Possibility: Creating Customer Value on the Digital Frontier
"Looking forward, healthcare organizations need to make patient experience part of their strategic plans. It’s as important as quality and safety. Manning and Bodine show why creating a great experience is important for any organization, and how to drive the change needed to make it a reality."
— Delos “Toby” Cosgrove, MD, CEO, Cleveland Clinic

"Here at Virgin, our brand is all about a great customer experience. Outside In provides the discipline to turn that thinking into successful business practices."
— Paul Sands, Head of Customer Experience Management, Virgin Atlantic Airways

“Here’s a simple recommendation: if you have customers, you should read this book.” —800-CEO-READ

“CIOs who want to travel down that path [of success] but need a bit of guidance should look at Outside In…By looking closely at the problems customers experienced that led them to call customer service, some of these companies either slashed costs by billions of dollars or generated billions in new revenue.” The Wall Street Journal -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine andere Ausgabe: Gebundene Ausgabe .

A good book providing all the tools to help you manage your side of the experience 23. August 2012
Von Mark P. McDonald - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts ( Was ist das? )
Outside In is a solid book on the increasingly important subject of the customer experience. Harley Manning and Kerry Bodine provide a comprehensive view of all of the major aspects related to the importance, design and creation of compelling customer experiences. Overall this book advances the state of customer experience strategy, processes and approaches. Recommended if you do not know what customer experience means or your current customer experience is in need of transformation.

The author's six disciplines of a mature customer experience organization provide a basis for thebook. Each discipline is its own chapter covering

Customer understanding

These disciplines, coupled with a part 1 that discusses the need and financial implications of poor customer experiences constitute the bulk of the book. The book introduces a number of tools from a definition of the customer journey, to the idea of a customer experience pyramid, ecosystem and four adoption levels of customer experience practices. These tools cover the full lifecycle of a customer experience program.

Overall the book represents a solid and in depth addition to the discussion of customer experience, its importance and design. It's a solid book as it reflects an understanding that builds on and extends current practice. Its not a book that will redefine what customer experience means, but it will give people without a definition a powerful resource to move them forward.


Frequent, personal and illustrative case stories, rather than case studies, that bring the book's concepts to life. These appear throughout the book and come from companies we all want to learn more about from Fidelity Investments, Best Buy, USAA, Jet Blue, etc. The authors use these stories effectively.

Advocating customer observation and inquiry, as a critical part of the customer experience process is spot on and often underappreciated in organizations. Too many people are too willing to accept what they think rather than to go out and see what is really going on.

The book is comprehensive with the appropriate level of detail to give executives an idea of what it takes to develop and execute a customer experience strategy. The six disciplines of a mature customer experience and the details are very helpful.

The book recognizes that the customer experience involves an ecosystem - it takes a village to have a good experience. This observation and the techniques discussed to define that ecosystem are strengths of the book.


The book defines the customer experience as `how your customers perceive their interactions with your company.' This definition, while accurate, creates a bias toward customer experiences based on usability, being easy to do business with and focus on what the company does as determining the experience. It's a subtle point but limiting the experience to interactions with your company provides a thin ledge to support inside out thinking.

The customer journey used in the book is good. But this lifecycle predominantly focuses on marketing, selling and purchase events as opposed to taking a broader view of the customer experience.

Through the book, there is an assumption that internal integration is the primary cause of a poor customer experience. It is, but its not the only cause, nor is improving integration the primary answer.

Finally the book is process heavy discussing the various disciplines, practices and tools involved in executing a customer experience strategy. That is a good thing, but much of this process is less informed by technology, the challenges and innovations it brings to the experience equation. It's an omission that re-enforces current practice when it could push the customer experience frontier.

"Outside In" Provides Inside Road Map to Customer Experience Success 30. August 2012
Von Robert Adams - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
Outside In is a great book for businesses and other organizations who want to understand and utilize the power of customer experience. If your company has any kind of interaction (digital, over-the-phone, face-to-face, or otherwise), you will benefit from applying the principles it contains to your business.

But that's not why I bought the book. I've taking a different perspective, that of a non-profit volunteer leader who wants to provide great GUEST services to our "customers." From my viewpoint, Outside In is an excellent guide to first introducing, and then providing a road map, for organizations who want to focus on providing a WOW! Guest experience program.

As a student of Guest Experiences, I was well aware of the book before its publication, reading a sample chapter and following the discussion by its authors Harley Manning and Kerry Bodine on the Forrester blog. I pre-ordered it from Amazon, and was delighted when it showed up one day after the book's release. After skimming the contents, I promptly canceled the rest of my day's appointments and read the book through.

I won't duplicate the table of contents here - that's what "Look Inside" is for. I'll just say that after one reading, I've began to go back through with a pen and highlighter. The book is marked up, notes are in the margin, and it looks like a highlighter has run wild.

It's that good - and a practical tool for your use.

I will be using this in my own organization, putting it to use in a consulting role, and referring it to all my clients. Want to understand the Guest (er, customer) experience? Order it today, put it into practice tomorrow.

There's "bad news" and there's "good news" 28. August 2012
Von Robert Morris - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Development of the concept of customer-centrism predates Barbara Bund's business classic, The Outside-In Corporation: How to Build a Customer-Centric Organization for Breakthrough Results (2005). However, it was while reading that book that I gained a deep understanding and appreciation of the power of customer-centrism. Curiously, there are no references to Bund and her work in Outside In, co-authored by Harley Manning and Kerry Bodine. As Bund explains in the Preface, "The primary objective of this book is to help business managers use [her various] insights effectively in practice. It is to share the outside-in discipline -- to provide a road map for managers to follow in creating and leading outside-in corporations, even in organizations where the unfortunate inside-out perspective has prevailed in the past." (page xviii) Whereas Bund invokes the "road map" metaphor, Manning and Bodine focus on what they characterize as "the customer journey," based on experiences that occur on three levels: an experience that meets a customer's given need(s), is easy for the customer to complete, and is en enjoyable experience as well.

The best business books are research-driven and that is certainly true of this one, given the nature and extent of Forrester Research's resources. To their credit, Manning and Bodine also provide a wealth of information, insights, and counsel that are anchored in real-world situations. They insert dozens of micro-case studies throughout the narrative, sharing lessons from a diverse group of companies that include Barclaycard US, BBVA, Boeing, John Deere Financial, Ecosytem Maps, FedEx, Fidelity Charitable, Holiday Inn, Mayo Clinic, Vanguard, and Walgreens. As for what can be learned from large and complicated organizations such as these, the lessons are relevant to any organization, whatever its size and nature may be.

These are among the dozens of passages that caught my eye:

o What Natural Ecosystems Teach Us About Customer experience (pages38-39)
o How to Create a Customer Experience Ecosystem Map, Step by Step (47-49)
o The Six Essential Customer Experience Disciplines (66-69)
o What You Think You Know About Customers Is Probably Wrong (88-89)
o The Role of Cocreation in the [Customer Interaction] Design Process (113-114)
o The Customer Experience Measurement Framework (126-132)
o You Need to Build a Customer-centric Corporate Culture (153-159)
o The Four Adoption Levels of Customer Experience Practices (175-177)
o Why Do Companies Need a Chief Customer Officer? (187-188)
o Customer Experience Innovations Will Provide a Competitive Edge (214-221)

Manning and Bodine as well as Bund and countless others all agree that establishing and then sustaining strong relationships with customers is more difficult now than ever before because customers have more choices than ever before, are better informed than ever before, and not only expect but indeed [begin italics] demand [end italics] that the selection and purchase experience involve more, much more than a transaction to obtain a product or service. The challenge is not to hire people who "get it" insofar as customer interaction is concerned. The challenge, rather, is to establish and then strengthen a culture (i.e. an organizational ecosystem) that is customer-centric, indeed customer-driven at all levels and in all areas. Hence the importance of the six disciplines that Harley Manning and Kerry Bodine emphasize. Hence the importance, also, of having a framework such as the one they describe within which the disciplines ensure that interactions with customers are based on mutual respect and mutual trust.

I conclude by sharing some "bad news" and some "good news." First the bad news: Customer relationships have never been more vulnerable than they are now. What's the good news? Customer relationships have never been more vulnerable than they are now.

A little obsessive 16. September 2013
Von kiwimoose - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
I can understand that many businesses have difficulties in moulding to their customers and understanding them but actually constructing an elaborate process to compensate for this is beyond the scope and budget of most smaller and medium sized businesses. This is really a how to book for bigger businesses that have lost the plot.

Does Your Company Need a Chief Customer Officer? 3. Oktober 2012
Von Rebecca of Amazon - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts ( Was ist das? )
A good customer experience drives loyalty up, and a bad customer experience drives loyalty down. ~ pg. 30

"Outside In" is a book every company owner should read. If the ideas in this book are implemented, customers will be happier.

Throughout the book there are stories of failure and success. Each eye-opening account will lead you in the direction of your own companies success. I'm glad the authors pointed out that automatically generated replies in email are not as pleasant as personal emails that make the customer feel heard. It is very frustrating to write a company and to have a computer answer your question, usually not very well.

What I loved about this book were the stories of how employees connected with customers in meaningful ways.

Some of the ideas are practical like the ideas on how to hire the right people and then to reward them when they show customer-centric behaviors.

By the time you finish this book you will probably know if you should hire a Chief Customer Officer or not. It might be the most important job in your company.
