From the Publisher[The Customer Learning Curve helps Earthlink deal with the disruptions it faces almost routinely, says its president.] During times of change, strategic marketers are faced with a combination of too much new information and the chaos of trying to organize the information usefully. The Customer Learning Curve provides a framework for sorting through and making sense out of the overwhelming amount of information available today. Getting information is not the problem. It's understanding it and taking correct action in these disruptive situations that's the challenge.
Tools like the Customer Learning Curve have made a significant contribution to making world-class product management a source of competitive advantage and a means to serving our clients better at JPMorgan. It is a prime example of the power of the Customer Learning Curve's client-centered, fact-based approach to marketing that we've begun to implement.
The second advantage is that it provides a road map for finding the right numbers and crunching them. Spreadsheets made it easy to crunch numbers, and the Internet made it easy to find numbers, and now Hellman and Burst make it easy to put the two together so that a reasonably thoughtful practitioner can do the right analysis with the right data. This book should be on the bookshelf of anyone who has a task like "prepare annual marketing plan" on their to-do list.
The most important marketing process takes place in your client's mind. I never cease to be amazed at how the customer's perspective integrates organizational silos (marketing, sales, customer service and operations) and serves as the pathway to breakthrough results. This book is full of uncommon knowledge about common problems. It serves as the cornerstone of our client engagements.
The post-purchase steps of the Customer Learning Curve offer genuine insight and valuable ideas that we are using to ensure continued success. With the aid of this book, an organization can easily identify and concentrate on improvement steps while acquiring tips on addressing these opportunities.
