How is this Customer Experience strategy template relevant to your organization?
Depending on the layer of the customer journey map you are seeking to improve, you can appropriately devise strategies to work on and improve the overall experience of your customers.
1. Define clear examples of your focus areas
It can be easy to think of focus areas by looking at your customer journey map and then narrowing down on the layers you have identified to establish what problem areas your organization specifically needs to resolve or work on.
An example of a focus area for a Customer Experience strategy could be Top Satisfaction.
2. Think about the objectives that could fall under that focus area
Focusing on objectives within this area can help you narrow down further into the goals you want to focus on in these areas. The objectives you set can be SMART objectives so that they epitomize clear and succinct end targets for you and your team to work towards.

3. Set yourself measurable targets (KPIs) to tackle the objective
Whilst you can also track and measure the progress of your objectives, itâ€™s also extremely crucial to set up smaller measurements that you can track and measure to monitor your progress.
Examples of KPIs that can measure this objective: Improve customer adoption process are Develop 20 new email response templates to streamline customer implementation stage, and Reach customer engagement threshold to 100%.
You can accordingly set up specific end dates or a time period that you want to achieve these KPIs.
