From the Inside Flap:

Inside the Customer Universe provides a systematic approach to out-compete competitors by providing the tools to decode the drivers of customer needs that will lead to the implementation of successful customer management growth strategies.

Inside the Customer Universe introduces a tool that enables the organization to identify and define three key elements: customer types, customer roles, and scenes. These elements are part of a tool called CUBEical segmentation (Customer Universe Based Execution). Based on this segmentation, managers are enabled to manage customer relationships proactively rather than reactively by building a compelling model of customer needs that is stable over time. CUBEical segmentation is a significant departure from current practice that builds strategies upon dynamic, ever-changing phenomena such as customer expectations, customer experience, and customer satisfaction. The tool and model are built into a framework that presents first approach to base a firm’s strategy on predicting customer needs rather than following them, and on setting customer expectations rather than firefighting dissatisfaction. The framework, in turn, can be used to create strategies around where and how the organization can compete in the market place.

The book is lavishly illustrated with examples from B2B and B2C firms, where the tools and model are being implemented. These examples provide hands-on illustrations of how the reader can implement the thinking and show how the reader can develop their own unique understanding of customers, their needs, and how to address them.
