Sean outlines the eight disciplines for aligning your print business with the customer, including how to measure them, and says that the transformation to a customer-focused culture can start with a focus on just one or two of these disciplines. He stresses the importance of empowering employees to engage with customers, and says that customers who know you are aligned with their goals are more likely to remain with a business.

We wrap the episode with a discussion on key priorities for customer retention, the need for continual improvement, and the reality that highly customer-centric organisations succeed over others. Sean also invites listeners to join a study he is undertaking on assessing the customer focused strengths and weaknesses of 300 businesses.
