Every customer has an experience with a product, service, or brand--good or bad. But few businesses know how to systematically manage customer experience, so they lose their best opportunity to leverage the long-term value of their customer relationships. Now, one of the field's top consultants shows how to engineer customer experiences from start to finish. Experience Engineering founder/CEO Lou Carbone draws on the latest neuroscientific research, explaining how an impressionistic mosaic of physical and emotional sensations is filtered through the senses, assembled into a powerful perception, and crystallized into attitudes that dictate everything from customer satisfaction to long-term loyalty. Next, he systematically explains how to assess and audit existing customer experiences, design and implement new ones, and steward them over time, to ensure consistent excellence and improvement. Increasingly, customer experience is a business' only opportunity for differentiation. This book gives readers the tools to craft an outstanding customer experience, no matter what they sell, or to whom it is sold.Readers will leave this book with a clear and actionable plan for managing the experiences that define their businesses--and their futures--on a day-to-day basis.

Good, bad, or indifferent, every customer has an experience with your company and the products or services you provide. But few businesses really manage that customer experience... so they lose the chance to transform customers into lifetime customers.
In this book, Lou Carbone shows exactly how to engineer world-class customer experiences, one clue at a time.
Carbone draws on the latest neuroscientific research to show how customers transform physical and emotional sensations into powerful perceptions of your business... perceptions that crystallize into attitudes that dictate everything from satisfaction to loyalty.
