What is this for?
Want to find opportunities for improvement in the customer journey of your company’s products or services? The “customer journey” helps you:
- Identify problem areas and key pain points by mapping your customers’ experience with your service or product. From there you can extract opportunities for improvement through building an understanding of how your customer navigates within the context of your service/product.
- Validate assumptions. What task does the user want to complete at a particular stage in the journey? How does the customer feel and interact with your organization?
