Superb demonstration of the relevance of loyalty in business
am 30. Juli 2000
Frederick Reichheld masterfully shows the reader the subtle interactions between customer loyalty, employee loyalty and investor loyalty. The vast majority of companies do not know the cash value of loyalty because they rely on traditional accounting tools that do not give them a complete picture of costs and value attached to customers, employees and investors. Loyalty leaders, though they consider profitability important, do not pursue it as a short-term goal to be reached at any cost to please anyone interested in their financial performance. They deliver superior value to their customers, employees and investors by convincing them that loyalty performs at its best when it is mutually beneficial over time. The loyalty web that those firms spin is socially complex and thus likely to be costly to emulate. Competitors of loyalty leaders do not have a chance to achieve superior performance if they adopt a piecemeal approach to loyalty. Frederick Reichheld gives would-be loyalty leaders a framework to build loyalty's leader strategy and tools to measure their progress on the road to success. However, like the builders of Rome, loyalty leaders did not master their craft overnight.
