The rapid shift to remote work and new online service models over the past year has fundamentally changed the way customers interact with companies.

But this is not easy to do. IDG research reports that only 15 percent of CIOs say their companies do “very well” in maintaining a consistent user experience across all communication channels. That is because most quality management (QM) processes in contact centers still rely on expensive call sampling, [...]

One of my clients, the CEO of an international agriculture business, said, “The price we pay for making things too complicated is immeasurable. It slows us down, makes for bad decisions, and scatters our efforts.”
Think about those three parts of the “price we pay” for making things too complicated:
1) Making things too complicated slows us down.
In today’s world, if we don’t move quickly opportunities disappear in the blink of an eye. The inability to focus and simplify means we will overthink our decisions, going back and forth with pros and cons and new considerations that we continue to add to the pile. Simplicity and focus enable us to make decisions more quickly. That’s a competitive advantage.
2) Making things too complicated makes for bad decisions.
In your experience, which solutions are the most effective? Which ideas are most likely to create success? The complicated ones? Or the simple ones? I ask that question of my audiences and the answer is [...]
