Overview

More than 65 percent of Southwest Airlines' customers book tickets themselves on southwest.com. The self checkout available in more than 1,000 Home Depot stores contributed to a 7.3 percent increase in the average customer transaction. Customers are creating do-it-yourself teddy bears at Build-A-Bear Workshops and designing do-it-yourself shoes at nikeID.com. Everyday, new ways of involving customers in businesses are emerging, evolving, and gaining wider acceptance. Customer satisfaction is high in these do-it-yourself experiences because customers save time, have more control, and achieve self-made results. In Creating Do-It-Yourself Customers: How Great Customer Experiences Build Great Companies, veteran business consultants Peter C. Honebein and Roy F. Cammarano show anyone who serves customers, from CEOs to frontline associates, how to lead the creation of truly outstanding customer experiences. This book justly emphasizes that for customers to perform, businesses must wrap their goods and services with performance-enhancing experiences. Customers need vision so they know what they are expected to do. They need access to tools that enable them to perform. They need incentives to motivate desired performances. And they need expertise so they can perform tasks competently. The authors call the orchestration of these four strategies a coproduction experience, and it forms the foundation for how businesses create do-it-yourself customers. Through the principles of customer codesign, cocreation, and coproduction, business owners, leaders, and employees can champion the ideals of great experiences for customers and become leaders in the do-it-yourself economy. The results are clear: greater customer satisfaction, trust, loyalty, and lifetime value-the cornerstones of a great company.

    A Complex View of Putting Your Customers to Work

    This book's main premise may be a bit of a conceptual stretch. It notes that customers perform more services which companies formerly provided (such as booking airline reservations), and recommends that companies should encourage customers to handle even more for themselves. To accomplish this, companies should make their customers 'co-producers,' so every interaction becomes a 'customer experience.' To advance this concept, authors Peter C. Honebein and Roy F. Cammarano, both experienced business consultants, developed a model based on advising businesses to treat customers like employees, including training them to do specific tasks. For instance, companies should teach good do-it-yourself customers to move more quickly through self-service checkout lines, so the customers feel successful. The authors view even straightforward customer actions as feel-good bonding opportunities for the providing company, such as when cell phone users get to select special ring tones. While offering ample evidence of an increasing trend toward self-service, the authors combine simple examples with a perhaps overly complex model to support their premise. We recommend this book primarily to managers who are interested in exploring 'customer experience' literature, and to companies that are deciding whether to put their customers to work.
