5.0 out of 5 stars Got Customers? You NEED THIS BOOK!, April 26, 2006
This review is from: Chief Customer Officer : Getting Past Lip Service to Passionate Action (Hardcover)
Jeanne Bliss tells CEOs and leaders exactly HOW to make customers the center of the business. Other authors may tell you what to do, but this book gives you a complete set of instructions on how to do the work with every level of the organization. I especially like that the diagnostics and tools offered can be used immediately and that there are a multitude of proven ways to get the CEO engaged. No matter what kind of business you are in, if you've got customers, you need this book!

Jeanne Bliss articulates not only the importance of putting customers at the center of your business, but conveys the challenges that prevent most companies from successfully delivering great customer experiences.

5.0 out of 5 stars Practical AND Thought-Provoking, April 10, 2006
This review is from: Chief Customer Officer : Getting Past Lip Service to Passionate Action (Hardcover)
All the tools, technology, and training to drive customer loyalty and profitability won't get you where you need to go if you don't first address the company, its agendas (hidden and on the surface), and how to harness all of the forces at work. Chief Customer Officer debunks how to get this done. It gives realistic perspective and real-world techniques for instilling the motivation, the metrics, and the mechanics required to achieve traction inside the corporate machine. The author's "Connecting the Dots" at the end of the book is an excellent summary and concise guide to adopt "passionate action" on behalf of customers. But the book is also provocative, challenging us to think about how change really happens in companies, and how new roles like Chief Customer Officer are needed to bridge the gaps between hype and reality.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hats Off to the Chief Customer Officer!, March 28, 2006
By 
This review is from: Chief Customer Officer : Getting Past Lip Service to Passionate Action (Hardcover)
Jeanne Bliss's new book, "Chief Customer Officer: Getting Past Lip Service to Passionate Action," offered a world of resources to our company. As the CEO of a rapidly growing organization, it was important to find a business model for customer service and retention that would not only match the culture we have developed, but also provide a backdrop for strategic planning. Every chapter not only discussed the importance of operating wholeheartedly for the customer, but ways to assess our current position and improve upon it.

Thanks Jeanne for helping us get past the lip service!

5.0 out of 5 stars Practical advice and a corporate eye-opener, October 25, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I had been working for many years as consultant and senior executive in the airline industry, always trying to make a point about integrating the customer's point of view into all corporate decision processes, when I found this book - a jewel for anybody concerned with how "the customer thing " is being dealt with in his or her company.

In addition to provide tons of practical advice and really usable working materials, the book can also be used as an eye-opener at the board and c-level to make them aware of how a Chief Customer Officer is a key strategic function which cannot be delegated down to the customer service department.

Jeanne Bliss is a practitioner so her book is MUCH more useful than most business books full of (certainly important and interesting) business strategies written by Harvard professors. With this book, you will get everything you need to put into practice at least a first level of customer experience leadership.

5.0 out of 5 stars Most Pragmatic Guide to CEM, August 25, 2008
By 
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Chief Customer Officer : Getting Past Lip Service to Passionate Action (Hardcover)
Jeanne tells it like it is, from the trenches, with practical recommendations for making customer experience management (CEM) work throughout the company. She lays out the common pitfalls, helps you think systemically, and guides you in getting it right the first time, or getting back on track. Jeanne helps you think through what makes sense for your particular situation. Thorough, excellent business examples, fun to read, useful diagrams and end-of-chapter guidance. For a quick read on driving progress of customer programs I also recommend this book with step-by-step tips: Metrics You Can Manage For Success and Customer Experience Improvement Momentum.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very detailed look at customer service, June 7, 2007
This review is from: Chief Customer Officer : Getting Past Lip Service to Passionate Action (Hardcover)
If the "customer is always right," the next question is, "Why do so many customers stop doing business with companies?" The answer is, "bad service." Customers refuse to buy from companies that render unsatisfactory service and ignore their complaints. Sadly, managers usually sound the alarm and demand new customer service initiatives only after the customers have fled. Author Jeanne Bliss, a veteran chief customer service officer, tries to explain the problem and to suggest ways to correct it. She offers so many detailed trees - in the form of questionnaires, bullet points, details and checklists - that you risk losing sight of the practical forest: the motives and methods for implementing better customer service. There is valuable information here, even if it is a bit shaded. For this reason, we particularly liked her clear, helpful and revealing chapter of first-hand stories from the field of customer service.

5.0 out of 5 stars by far the most practical customer experience book out there, April 11, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Chief Customer Officer : Getting Past Lip Service to Passionate Action (Hardcover)
Jeanne Bliss does all customer experience professionals a favor by sharing her approach and advice in this book. It really is a book that has post-its and turned down pages and is referenced often. Jeanne is a pro at making this complex and sometimes hard to define profession very clear and approachable. She doesn't say it is easy; but she gives those that are courageous enough to follow it a recipe for success. Jeanne Bliss is immensely talented and I'd recommend that anyone in the customer experience space read Chief Customer Officer and visit her resources online, too.

5.0 out of 5 stars And why aren't more people doing this?, December 11, 2006

This review is from: Chief Customer Officer : Getting Past Lip Service to Passionate Action (Hardcover)
Jeanne writes a book for now on a role that too many people will say is before it's time. It is always about the client and yet organizationally no one puts enough emphasis on the client voice within organizations. Jeanne clearly shows her battle field experience in helping those that embrace the client, get input, direction and organizational buy-in to doing what is right for the client and thus the firm without being shot as the messenger.
