“Measuring the Customer Experience” by Gerry McGovern – An Event Apart video

The best way to understand digital user experience is to measure the time and effort required to complete top tasks. That’s why the most successful digital brands, from Amazon to Google, are relentless in their focus on saving their customers time. To succeed as these companies do, we must discard our organization-centric model of production, and accurately measure task completion and time-on-task.

In this free 60-minute video, captured live at An Event Apart: Denver Special Edition, Customer Carewords CEO Gerry McGovern shares a robust method for accurately measuring the time it takes your customers to complete their top tasks. You will learn a set of management metrics covering the ability of the customer to do what they came to do, how long it took them, what the problems are, and what needs to be done to make things better. Armed with this knowledge, you’ll be ready to continually improve the customer experience to faster and more accurately satisfy your users’ fondest desires.
