Deep Discounts on All Programs and Services
The Goal of this program is for participants to be able to determine clear, on-target business requirements from customers, resulting in WOW customer service when implemented.
Too often customers and their suppliers think they are successfully communicating about requirements of a needed service, only to find out...too late, that they were talking past one another. They become caught up in jargon and fail to get the key information clear.

The key questions to be clarified is not which widgets do you like best, but...

  • What is it that you are trying to achieve?
  • What is the sequence of functions you now use to achieve this?
  • How do you measure performance quality?
  • Do you have data or customer input indicating improvements needed in your current functions?
  • What would a really successful outcome of this improvement process look like, sound like, feel like?
  • How have your partners been involved in your improvement plans?
